Reception House Waterloo Region is a community-based organization that provides a warm welcome to government assisted refugees
Our programs and services assist refugees throughout their settlement and integration process, enabling them to lead healthy and productive lives in their new community.
We start by providing the basics: temporary accommodations, orientations to life in Canada and down the line, we empower those we serve to find meaningful employment, improve their language skills and heal from trauma and loss.
“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
Past Chair of the Board of Directors and CEO
