Multicultural Health Brokers Cooperative

The MultiCultural Health Brokers  (MCHB) is a social enterprise cooperative that has been supporting immigrant and refugee families in Edmonton since 1994.    

The Multicultural Family Resource Society (MFRS) evolved out of MCHB in 2005 as  a complimentary organization that would serve the same vision and values  but with its own structure as a registered non-profit and charitable organization.

Working as sister organizations, MCHB and MFRS embrace a collaborative practice rooted in cultural brokering and aimed at an inclusive intercultural Edmonton. The two organizations, with their unique structures and collaborative working relationship, strengthens each other's capacity to holistically serve immigrant and refugee families.
