Addressing the Housing Needs of Refugee Families through Transitional Housing and Wrap-around Supports

This project explores how the provision of affordable, transitional housing coupled with holistic programming and supports impacts refugee families' resettlement, enhances social inclusion, and contributes to their ability to access housing that meets their long-term needs. The IUS is working in partnership with the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba Inc. (IRCOM) on this project, which is funded by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) through the National Housing Strategy (NHS).

The objective is to develop a framework for pursuing data-driven research that compares housing and settlement trajectories of IRCOM tenants with a wider sample of newcomers to assess the model, its outcomes, and gaps. This initiative will allow IRCOM to build internal capacity for research and data collection. Looking forward, this project will enable IRCOM to take advantage of extensive internal data and provincial and national-level datasets to link the effects of programming with both housing and settlement outcomes, which will provide enhanced understanding and evidence of the efficacy of their model of housing and supports for newcomers families.
