Christie Refugee Welcome Centre

Christie Street Refugee Centre - 43 Christie Street

A place of 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 two decades.

Approximately 300 homeless refugee claimants (100 families) from war-torn countries world-wide arrive at the Centre 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.
