Refugee Response

We would like to thank you for your support over the last year.  We have been busy preparing over the last month with an expansion of our direct services to support the refugees as they arrive to London and we need your help. MRCSSI are working alongside settlement services, sponsors and health practitioners to ensure newcomers have access to services, support to help their integration and counselling to begin the healing journey to overcome trauma.

 How you can help Refugees

Financial Donations – There is still time to give for 2015!  All donations are used to support our direct client services and donations $20 and up will receive a charitable donation receipt.  To donate online, please visit: http://mrcssi.com/donate/. If you or your spouse have not claimed any charitable donations on your income taxes for any year after 2007, you can take advantage of the First-time donor super-credit. This new credit effectively adds 25% to the rates used in the calculation of the charitable donations tax credit for up to $1,000 of monetary donations. As a result, a first-time donor will be allowed a 40% federal credit for donations of $200 or less, and a 54% federal credit for the portion of donations over $200 but not exceeding $1,000.  For more infomation about this, please visit: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/gncy/bdgt/2013/qa01-eng.html Other
