Manitoba Interfaith Immigration Council Inc. (MIIC) is Manitoba’s largest refugee settlement agency. Through the agency’s Settlement and Resettlement Assistance Program (RAP) and its Educational and Community Services Division, MIIC staff work with multicultural, multi-linguistic and multi-faith communities in Manitoba to support Government Assisted Refugees (GARs), Privately Sponsored Refugees (PSRs) and other newcomers.
The agency has over 65 years history of sustainability and growth. Governed by a multi-faith volunteer Board the agency mobilizes resources from government, and the general community, to deliver high quality services to help integrate refugees into Canadian society. Under the direction of the Board the agency monitors government policies and attitudes towards refugees and works cooperatively with federal, provincial and non-government agencies which are concerned for the welfare of refugees.
The agency ensures through its programming and community connections with other like-minded and specialized agencies that refugees access and receive services that are necessary and appropriate for an individual and family need.
