A world in crisis
The world is facing the worst refugee crisis in history. MCC Toronto’s Refugee Ministry provides hope for LGBTQ2S+ refugees in Canada who have experienced persecution, violence, or risk to their lives in their home countries.
We have sponsored 29 refugees from Middle Eastern and African countries where it is dangerous to be LGBTQ2S+, including some where the penalty is death. As well, over 2400 refugee claimants have participated in our peer support programs. We advocate with our allies for improvements to the complex refugee system.
