When a disaster strikes, we work with partner organizations in order to act quickly and effectively. In the wake of a disaster, the needs of a community extend beyond immediate relief. We act with long term goals, to set up a community to function better than they were and for much longer than we will ever be there.
WHAT IS REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP?
Through the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program, you may be able to help sponsor refugees from abroad who qualify to come to Canada. Your role as a sponsor is to support the refugees during the sponsorship period. This includes help for housing, food, clothing, as well as social and emotional support.
There are several streams through which refugees fleeing persecution, war, and human rights violations can be sponsored to Canada:
- Goverment Assisted
- Blended Visa Office-referred
- Joint Assistance Sponsorships

We’ve partnered with the Christian Reformed Centre for Public Dialogue to create a 90 minute refugee simulation. This simulation can be done with your congregation, small group, or at any gathering of 5-500 people. Fill out the form below to learn more.
