A refugee is someone who has been forced to flee his or her country because of persecution, war, or violence. A refugee has a well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group.
The Regina Community Clinic has been committed to the well-being and care of government-sponsored refugees since 2004.
The refugee population represents less than 20% of total clinic patient care at RCC.
The Ministry of Health has approved targeted funding for this population.
