Donate to support immigrants and refugees

The cause

Through your help

708

newcomers were welcomed to Canada by the Office of Refugees of the Archdiocese of Toronto in 2023.

Over

3,300

people received resettlement services from Catholic Crosscultural Services last year– funded through ShareLife donors like you.

Since

2015

an influx of Syrian refugees has arrived in Canada. ShareLife agencies are providing ongoing settlement support no longer covered by government funding.

— Cardinal Thomas Collins
