About FCJ Refugee Centre

FCJ Refugee Centre serves refugees and others at risk due to their immigration status, and welcomes anyone asking for advice, counsel and support regarding their refugee or immigration claim process and integration into Canadian life. We also address systemic issues that newly arrived refugee claimants face in Canada including lack of resources, marginalization, and discrimination.


Ride for Refuge is a valuable opportunity to allow us to continue on this path. Our dedicated and motivated cycling and walking teams are ready to meet the challenge and raise funds to keep doing the important work we do.
