MOSAIC welcomes refugees

MOSAIC is proud to support refugees by providing resettlement and integration support, and advocating on their behalf. 

MOSAIC was formed in 1976 by a group of immigrants and refugees. Since then, we have become a Canadian leader in providing support and resettlement services for those from all continents and diverse backgrounds. We provide one-to-one and group services with those who are navigating life in Canada as refugee claimants, convention refugees and protected persons, as well as other non-status or stateless persons.

Client testimonials

“I am very grateful to MOSAIC because they gave me so much support when I arrived in Canada.…The two people who looked after me were so kind and found me housing and a safe place. They are very, very good people.”

“My experience with MOSAIC was very good and very friendly! The manager connected us to transition housing; and even came to meet us at the hotel, and took us to the train station so we could get to Abbottsford. Plus, she followed up with us and didn’t forget who I was when I saw her again!”

 “We were lucky to get introduced to the brilliant team at MOSAIC in Surrey. They helped us a lot with applying for work permit, answering our questions, and assisting us with our refugee hearing process.”
