CRWC is a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) working in partnership with Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada.
As a SAH, CRWC can work with sponsoring groups to help complete and submit applications to sponsor refugees who are overseas. We have been receiving a very large number of enquiries about refugee sponsorship since the Syrian Crisis response in September 2015. Allocation caps limit the number of sponsorships SAHs can do annually. However, with the number of global refugees increasing each year, CRWC is committed to supporting Canada’s efforts to resettle refugees.
Under the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program, sponsors are required to support the refugees both financially and with settlement assistance for 12 months after their arrival in Canada. We are providing the information below to help you understand the financial requirements of our sponsorship program.
For up-to-date information on sponsorships for 2017, please consult the ‘Additional Notes’ section below.
