It was a visceral, sickening last week of summer. Images of Alan Kurdi’s tiny body weaved with early election partisan blame games over Canada’s reluctance to act quickly on the Syrian refugee crisis. It forced Stephen Harper from his script and became a breakthrough election issue.Amid this current, Vancouver-based Immigrant Services Society of BC is setting the compassionate standard for refugees. Welcome House—currently a construction site near Commercial-Broadway SkyTrain station—is planning to open in June as a 58,000-sq.-ft. service hub that will streamline transitional housing and targeted services under one roof.
