Refugee 613 believes that by working together, we can help more refugees make successful new lives in Ottawa and contribute to the health and vitality of our city for generations to come. Many others in Ottawa share that vision and work together to bring it to life. Here are some of the organizations that regularly collaborate under the Refugee 613 umbrella and make it all possible.

If we have missed your organization, please accept our apologies for the oversight and send a message to info@refugee613.ca to be added to the list.

If you’d like to know more about partnering with us, get in touch — we love to add new energy and resources to Ottawa’s refugee response!
