Reception House Waterloo Region is a community-based organization that provides a warm welcome to government assisted refugees
Upon arrival, we provide temporary accomodations. Our most important task is to ensure that our guests feel welcome, safe and secure in their new environment. Last year, we assisted approximately 1,000 refugees and migrants in the Waterloo region.
“Shining a Light on the Refugee Journey is our touch phrase. As we walk with refugees on their journey, our aim is to be transformative, not transactional, to stay responsive to community needs.”
Ernie Regehr & Carl Cadogan
Chair of the Board of Directors and Executive Director
