QUIC does not endorse these resources in any way.
Please exercise caution as SOME ONLINE ADVERTISEMENTS MAY BE FRAUDULENT, especially on Kijiji, with fabricated email messages.
Never pay a deposit or wire funds based on an ad, without actually speaking with the advertiser/checking into the person’s identity, or meeting them in person. Fraudulent ads typically operate by emails and ask for a wire deposit, stating that the owner of the apartment/house is abroad. More information can be accessed here.
If you have any questions, please contact QUIC Housing Support.
