Help Centre what do you need help with?

The refugee I sponsored is arriving next week but I’m not ready for them. What should I do?

If you’re part of a Constituent Group, contact the sponsorship agreement holder (SAH) for help preparing.

Any other sponsor group unable to support a refugee they agreed to sponsor must contact us as soon as possible (IRCC.INROCO-CORORI.IRCC@cic.gc.ca).

As a sponsor, you need to be ready to support the refugees you sponsor when they get to Canada. This includes

  • making arrangements to meet them when they arrive
  • resettling them in your community
  • integrating them into your community
