The Fraser Valley Refugee Readiness Team (FVRRT) wants to spread the word about the benefits that come with renting to displaced Ukrainians and other refugees.

At their upcoming information session, the FVRRT will be giving residents of Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, and Mission the chance to ask questions and learn from a panel of experts in refugee housing.

Part of the event will also include a speaker getting on stage and sharing their heartwrenching story about the struggles that they faced when trying to find housing as a refugee.
