Why Rent to a Refugee

Renting to refugees fosters integration and compassion

Refugee Housing provides a seamless platform to connect compassionate hosts with a spare bedroom to refugees seeking to start a new life in Canada. Many of these refugees have fled conflicts and war and are looking for a new start. They want to be able to get a job, support themselves and their families, and give back to the community. Discrimination and lack of accessible and affordable housing create a great barrier and lead to extended stays for refugees in temporary accommodation. Additionally, hosts may be reluctant to rent to refugees. This delays refugees’ integration into society and puts extensive pressure on available resources for refugees.

Hosts with spare bedrooms can make a difference in the refugees lives and be part of the solution. Hosts willing to rent to refugees can help build stronger communities while earning extra rent income on the side. Refugee Housing will offer resources to support Hosts part of our program. We provide Hosts with onboarding support, interview guide, move-in checklist, in addition to the living agreement contract.

We encourage our community to be part of the solution and join us in raising the much-needed awareness about affordable, accessible housing. If you don’t have a room to share, help us by spreading the word about our program.

Why rent to refugees? 

Here are five reasons:

  • Refugees have left their countries to escape danger and uncertainty. They are eager to start a new life in Canada. They are looking for accommodation, employment and stability.

  • A win-win situation. You will earn a rental income while refugees will have a place to live. Refugees receive government support and are able to pay rent while they find employment and settle to a new life.

  • Refugees referred by settlement agencies are vetted through these agencies and are typically responsible and take care of your home.

  • You will be making a positive impact by offering refugees a place to live and contributing to their successful integration into society.

  • Renting to refugees offers the opportunity for a rich cultural exchange where you can both learn about each other's traditions, foods, and customs.
