About Kinbrace

For people forcibly displaced from their homes and countries, Canada is a beacon of safety and protection from persecution.


Their journey toward safety can be dangerous, long, and filled with uncertainty.


Arrival in Canada offers a gasp for breath, but is immediately choked by homelessness, culture shock, fears, tears, and sheer survival.


Who can I trust?

Where will I sleep tonight?

How do I find a lawyer for my refugee claim?

Can my children go to school?

What must I do next....?


Your presence in their hour of desperate need provides a community of welcome, a safe place to call home, and clear information.


Your support creates a world of welcome, a community of belonging, and a life of opportunity for each refugee claimant.
