Care & Support

The Peoples House

An important part of our welcome to refugees is our very own emergency home for individuals and families seeking asylum in Canada.

Our Story

The Peoples House is a ministry of the Peoples Church in Toronto, and was created in response to the question of how we as a church could best respond to the refugee crisis that is facing our country and our world.

Thousands of refugees are fleeing their homes due to danger and persecution. They come from all around the world and seek a safe home and a new beginning in Canada. The Peoples House has responded to this need by providing a safe home for approximately 8-14 refugees at a time who would otherwise have no safe place to stay in Toronto.
