About IRCOM:

Founded in 1991, the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba (IRCOM), helps in the successful integration of newcomer families within the first 5 years of their settlement in Canada. The charity operates a transitional housing complex in downtown Winnipeg called IRCOM House Ellen. This complex offers secure, affordable and clean apartments to newcomer families for up to 3 years after their arrival. Currently, the complex supports an average of 300 families.  A new facility called IRCOM Isabel is expected to open for operations in early 2016. Between 50 and 60 new families will benefit from this new complex.


In addition, IRCOM provides onsite support and services including an After-School Program for children and youth, an Asset Building Program for those interested in learning about money in the Canadian context and participating in a matched savings program, as well as a Community Resource Program that connects community members with employment, education, and various health resources throughout Winnipeg. IRCOM also runs the Newcomer Literacy Initiative, which consists of daily English classes for newcomers and the Newcomer Driver Education Program, which helps newcomers obtain their driver’s licence.

Financial Review:

In F2014, IRCOM's administrative costs were 6% of revenues. The charity did not report fundraising costs in either its audited financial statements nor its CRA T3010 filing. At the end of F2014, IRCOM had funding reserves of $410k covering 29% of annual program costs.


This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by IRCOM. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
