Creating a New Social Space / Renovating our Dining Room

Food brings people together, and shared mealtimes in our dining room make it easy for newly-arrived families to connect with each other. Our current dining space is too small to accommodate all the families staying at Christie shelter.

We want to expand our dining area to accommodate our entire community and also make it a multi-purpose space that can be used for social, educational, and other events.

If you would like to support this renovation project, please contact Sam Chaise, Executive Director of the Christie Refugee Welcome Centre, at or (416) 588-9277.

Donations to this category will be specifically designated to the Social Space / Dining Room project.
