Toronto Hydro building becomes refugee shelter, thanks to Iranian-Canadian immigrants

The large, multi-room facility on Yonge Street is expected to house more than 200 people.

As the primary destination for immigrants to Canada, Toronto also receives the highest numbers of arrivals in classes that have more complex needs, such as refugees and refugee/asylum claimants. In 2016, Toronto welcomed 11,405 resettled refugees and protected persons, which included close to 7,000 Syrian refugees.
