Kinbrace is BC’s longest-serving housing provider for people seeking refugee protection in Canada. Since 1998, the Kinbrace community has welcomed over 530 refugee claimants – more than half of them children – by providing transitional housing and integration support. Nationally, Kinbrace works to give each refugee claimant arriving in Canada increased access to refugee protection.
