Private Sponsorship

  • The resettlement of refugee(s) to Canada, in which the financial costs of sponsorship and settlement support is provided by private groups or organizations. Private sponsorship is a solution of last resort; there must be no other durable solution for refugee(s) except resettlement.
    • Designated Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH): Organizations that have signed an agreement with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to privately sponsor refugees. They can sponsor refugees themselves or work with others in the community to sponsor refugees.
    • Co-Sponsors: An individual or group who partners with a SAH (e.g. The Association for New Canadians) to share responsibility of the sponsored refugee(s). While the SAH holds the sponsorship agreement, co-sponsors take the lead role in providing financial and day-to-day support.
