Action Réfugiés Montréal
Social services organization
The Montreal United Nations Conference 2017 is proud to be partnering with Action Réfugiés Montréal, a strong voice for refugees in Montreal and beyond, to raise funds for asylum-seekers and refugees. Donations will be collected at the conference.
We seek justice for asylum-seekers and refugees. We promote partnerships among refugees, faith communities and society at large for mutual empowerment. Through our programs we provide hope and assistance while raising awareness of refugee rights.
Founded in 1994, we now have six employees. We have enabled over 1,000 refugees to be sponsored to live in Canada. Every year we bring legal information and moral support to over 200 persons detained at the Immigration Holding Centre in Laval. We match refugee women living in Montreal with local residents in order to reduce social isolation and enhance integration into local society. We deliver presentations to over 1,000 people every year and are frequent guests in media interviews
