Refugee Sponsorship Program in Canada

The Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program in Canada helps a massive number of refugees every year. You can sponsor refugees from other countries who can qualify to come to Canada. A sponsor has the responsibility to take care of sponsored refugee.

The millions of people immigrate to Canada every year, as the circumstance force them to leave their home and the motherland. There are various reasons behind such immigration, i.e., avoiding persecution, war, human rights abuses and so on. We call such forced immigrants as Refugees. In most of the cases, these people never return home.

Its commendable initiative on the part of the Canadian Government to welcome such a vast number of Refugee immigrants to their country and make the special arrangements and the proper care and resettlement of the Refugees in Canada.
