Help Refugees

Help refugees by

  • Caregiving
  • Becoming a board member
  • Donating to NEST


By volunteering as a caregiver, you’ll help refugees adjust to life in Canada through activities such as

  • daily necessities (grocery shopping, riding the bus)
  • signing them up for essential services (finding a family doctor, enrolling kids in school)
  • teaching them street smarts (avoiding telemarketers, scams)

To care-give effectively, you’ll need to be available during part of a working-day. Time spent per week depends on a range of factors, such as language barriers and the type of family.

Since NEST is responsible for refugees’ first year in Canada, we ask that you try care-giving for a year.
