ABOUT US

The African Centre for Refugees in Ontario Canada is a registered not-for-profit and non-sectarian African Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (L.G.B.T.I.Q.) community organization that supports vulnerable refugees from the African continent with humanitarian assistance to unite as a harmonious community to create a friendly and supportive environment.

We aim at addressing interests of African L.G.B.T.I.Q. refugees in Ontario from the moment they enter the country until they are integrated into the Canadian setting following the IRCC agency of the Canadian Government.

Our organization is a place of consultation as well as mutual encouragement and support for the L.G.B.T.I.Q. people by L.G.B.T.I.Q. people.

PARTNERSHIP

The organization works with other civil society organizations/partners to champion the rights of African L.G.B.T.I.Q. refugees seeking asylum and protection in the Province of Ontario, Canada through Research and Advocacy work powered by our common belief that

“A Better World is Possible.”

OUR VISION:

To create an African L.G.B.T.I.Q. generation of healthy youth proactively involved in the Canadian national transformation.

OUR MISSION:

To promote meaningful African L.G.B.T.I.Q. youth engagement in provincial programming for sustainable development.

OUR GOAL:

To establish a coordinated African L.G.B.T.I.Q. movement in Ontario, Canada.

OUR OBJECTIVES

  • To welcome and support all African L.G.B.T.I.Q. Refugees in Ontario, Canada.
  • To mobilize more African L.G.B.T.I.Q. Refugees to help create a coordinated and visible African L.G.B.T.I.Q. Refugee movement in Ontario, Canada.
  • To rebuild a better future for African L.G.B.T.I.Q. Refugees by linking them to different innovative programs.

WHAT WE DO

1. New Comer Settlement Program (NSP):

We offer new comers (Refugees) settlement support services to address the barrier of homelessness they face in Canada. Additionally, we assist refugee claimants with completing their applications for asylum as well as other settlement issues.

2. Volunteer Engagement Services

Volunteering is one of the greatest ways that we utilize to open up our organization to the communities to actively participate in its operations through active involvement to ensure the sustainability of the organization.

3. Career Workshops:

We offer career workshops such as financial literacy workshops, language literacy, Resume writing that encourages community partnerships and liaison with employers to integrate the African L.G.B.T.I.Q Refugees into the workforce.

4. Referals & Information:

We offer basic referral information on health and livelihood especially on Sexual Reproductive Health and Legal Aid since settlement involves all aspects of life.

5. Computer Literacy:

Technology is a significant aspect of Ontario’s fast growing economy and this requires matching ICT literacy skills for efficiency by all African L.G.B.T.I.Q Refugees and this enables them build confidence in using computers.
