about us

AMSSA is a unique province-wide association that strengthens over 70 member agencies as well as hundreds of community stakeholder agencies who serve immigrants and newcomers, and build culturally inclusive communities, with the knowledge, resources and support they need to fulfill their mandates.

AMSSA is funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to provide support to IRCC contract holding agencies in British Columbia. The Province of British Columbia funds AMSSA’s Safe Harbour: Respect for All program. AMSSA also relies on other funders, donations, and fundraising initiatives for projects and programming.
