About Christie Refugee Welcome Centre

Welcome, safety, and support for refugees.


Located in the heart of downtown Toronto just minutes from Christie/Bloor in the Annex, Christie Refugee Welcome Centre (CRWC) has provided emergency shelter and a warm welcome for refugee families from all ethnic, racial or religious backgrounds for more than 30 years,


Approximately 300 homeless refugee claimants (100 families) from war-torn countries world-wide arrive at Christie each year. At CRWC they receive the care, support and assistance they need to pursue their refugee claim and to reconstruct and begin their new lives in Canada.


RIDE for REFUGE is a wonderful opportunity to support and advocate for refugee families arriving in Toronto.
