A Place For New Beginnings

Reception House Waterloo Region is a temporary home for government-assisted refugees

Reception House Waterloo Region is a temporary home for government-assisted refugees. Our most important task is to ensure that our guests feel welcome, safe and secure in their new environment. This year, we will assist approximately 800 refugees and migrants who are resettled in the Waterloo region. 

During their stay, our guests receive advice and hands-on experience on adjusting to life in their new country. We help each individual or family find a permanent place to stay, as well as assistance in registering for necessary documents such as OHIP and SIN, to become familiar with the Canadian banking system, and to have their language assessed.
