IRCOM II (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization of Manitoba), located on Isabel Street between Pacific and Ross, is the second and latest building in the provincially sponsored program that provides safe and affordable transitional housing to low-income newcomer families in their first three years of living in Canada. This building was originally constructed in 1979 as a multi-unit affordable housing facility. The renovation of this 7-storey, 79,000 square foot building now features two separate child care facilities and two multi-purpose rooms to host community programs in addition to 60 units ranging from bachelor suites to three bedroom apartments. Outside there are two courtyards with a basketball court, screened storage compounds, and an outdoor space for the daycare.
