We believe in improving the lives of refugees and advocating for a more inclusive and vibrant Nova Scotia.
Each person in need who enters our doors receives settlement, legal and advocacy support, free of charge. Each day we are reminded that our community is made stronger when we give a hand up rather than a handout to the vulnerable or marginalized.
English As Another Language Tutorials:
The Halifax Refugee Clinic offers free English tutorials for clients. These one-on-one sessions are run by our dedicated team of volunteer English language instructors.
