Our Refugee Sponsorship team is currently working hard to bring a family of 5 to Canada through group sponsorship, known as a Constituent Group (CG). It is a long process from creating an official team for the application, to finding a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH), to approval of funding from our Social Justice Progam, to application, to preparation, to arrival, and finally to sponsorship.

According to the UNHCR, there are 79.5 million forcibly displaced people at the end of 2019 as a result of persecution, conflict, violence, human rights violations or events seriously disturbing public order

"People fleeing persecution and conflict have been granted asylum in foreign lands for thousands of years. The UN agency that helps refugees is UNHCR (also known as the UN Refugee Agency), which emerged in the wake of World War II to help Europeans displaced by that conflict.

...In a world where nearly 1 person is forcibly displaced every 2 seconds as a result of conflict or persecution, the work of UNHCR is more important than ever before." United Nations
