About Christie Refugee Welcome Centre:
In 1989, Christie Refugee Welcome Centre (CRWC), formerly World Vision Reception Centre, was established to welcome some of the 750 government-assisted refugees arriving in Toronto each year. For 10 years, the Centre partnered with Citizenship and Immigration Canada to provide temporary accommodation, essential services, orientation to life in Canada, and housing services to refugees fleeing war and political upheaval in such countries as Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Bosnia, Kosovo, and Colombia.
CRWC is a Christian organization that serves people through the ownership and operation of a 70-person shelter, providing temporary housing and follow-up support services to refugee claimants regardless of race, religion or gender. It also provides an outreach program for families after they have moved out of the shelter, plus a refugee sponsorship program to help refugees attain sponsorship for up to 12 months.
This financial review is prepared from unaudited draft financial statements provided by CRWC to the Canada Revenue Agency.
In F2013, administrative costs were 22% of revenues and no fundraising costs were reported by CRWC. Funding reserves of $72k cover only 6% of annual program costs, although government funding accounted for virtually all of F2013 revenue.
