WHAT IS REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP?
Through the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program, you can help sponsor refugees who qualify to come to Canada. Your role as a sponsor is to support the refugees during the sponsorship period, which is typically one year. This includes support for housing, food, clothing, as well as social and emotional support.
There are three streams through which refugees fleeing persecution, war, and human rights violations can be privately sponsored to Canada:
- Blended Visa Office-referred
- Joint Assistance Sponsorships
