Our DonorsIf you would like to share the freedom we have in Canada with LGBTQ2S+ people who are in danger in other countries, and help them become settled refugees in Canada, please consider providing financial support for our work. You can be a monthly donor for $10 or more a month, or make a one-time donation to the Refugee Fund. Monthly donations are set up as automatic withdrawals from your credit card or bank account. This reduces our administrative costs and helps us plan ahead.

To stay up-to-date on issues and contribute to a collective voice on changes needed, MCC Toronto is a member of the Canadian Council for Refugees. From our experience with refugees trying to navigate the complex refugee system, we speak out about issues and changes needed to the system.
We work with other refugee service-providers in Toronto to avoid duplication and promote good relationships.
We have a formal partnership with the Rainbow Railroad to support their efforts to help LGBTIQ+ refugees in danger globally to move to countries of safety, and we provide oversight to their sponsorship of several LGBTIQ+ refugees to Canada through MCC Toronto.
We connect our refugees and claimants with community groups which provide services to LGBTQ2S+ refugees. We are part of the LGBTQ+ Settlement Network of Toronto, which includes the following: Women’s Health in Women’s Hands Community Health Centre, Access Alliance, Black CAP, Skylark, Egale Youth OUTreach, Planned Parenthood Toronto, Supporting Our Youth (SOY) at Sherbourne Health Centre, Access Alliance, FCJ Refugee Centre, reachOUT, OCASI Positive Spaces Initiative, and CultureLink’s Sankofa.
They don’t sponsor refugees, and we don’t duplicate the counselling, education and other services they offer.
We work to educate our congregation and the public about the particular challenges faced by LGBTIQ+ refugees around the world and here in Canada.
