United Way British Columbia supports communities and strengthens the vital connections that make them healthy; this includes newcomers from Ukraine seeking safety and belonging.


A need for housing

Since the escalation of Russia’s aggression into Ukraine, British Columbia has welcomed Ukrainians into the province as they seek a safe place. With no end to the conflict, Ukrainians are still in need of hosts as they come to the province.

Their journeys have seen them face trauma and horrors, but also hope as they are welcomed to a new community. Unfortunately, as more people arrive, there are less available accommodations for those in need.

United Way British Columbia’s housing program places safety and security as a priority. Applications are vetted and provided to partner settlement agencies to find the most suitable matches for everyone. Both hosts and Ukrainians are supported throughout the process. In cases where a match doesn’t work out, all parties collaborate to find a resolution and new accommodations if needed.

If your home is insured by BCAA Home Insurance, any additional home insurance premiums are covered for eligible customers who host a displaced Ukrainian family or individual.
