how we will impact

Our goal is to reduce the impact of systemic inequities faced by continental African Canadians by providing them with affordable housing and other community supports.

We aim to provide rent, rent-to-own or affordable sales options. These options are designed to act as temporary tools to help families build equity before moving on to market-rate housing.

This project will include a mixture of high-rise, mid-level buildings, and single family homes. This model will provide a variety of services necessary for community members to thrive.

Kizito Musabimana, 

RCHC Founder & Executive Director

Kizito Musabimana is the founder and Executive Director of the Rwandan Canadian Healing Centre. Mr Kizito founded RCHC in 2018 after overcoming PTSD (caused by the 1994 Rwandan Genocide against Tutsi in Rwanda). He walked from Toronto to Montreal to raise awareness about PTSD challenges within the Rwandan-Canadian community. His walk took place from November 24 to December 11, 2016.

By taking a holistic approach to life, Kizito was able to overcome the worst of PTSD (severe depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts). He has since worked tirelessly to understand issues in his (African Canadian) community, partnering with youth and leaders and leading organisations to develop programs designed to solve these challenges collaboratively for current and future generations.
