UPDATE: In-kind Donation Collection and Distribution Centre has been closed.
Beginning today, IKEA Canada is offering support for refugee families settling in Canada through donations of IKEA home furnishings. IKEA Canada will accept applications from registered charitable organizations from December 10th through March 31st, 2016, or until the project budget has been exhausted, through an online application form.
Canada has announced that the timeline for individual charitable donations to be counted toward the government’s Syria Emergency Relief Fund will be extended until February 29, 2016.
For every eligible dollar donated by individual Canadians to registered Canadian charities in response to the conflict in Syria, the government will continue to set aside one dollar—up to a total of $100 million—to the Fund.
