About Micah House Refugee Reception Services

Since 2006 Micah House has welcomed and housed well over 1300 refugee claimants who have made our small residence their first Canadian home! We provide a safe space, settlement support and a welcoming community to individuals and families during a time that can be very stressful and isolating.


Let's work together to create a community of peace and hope for newly arrived refugee claimants. https://www.micahhouse.ca


If you would like to learn more please call Stephanie at 905-296-4387 x3.
