CCI manages two sponsorship agreements: the sponsorship agreement of the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation of Ottawa, which exclusively serves local parishes, and a second sponsorship agreement for CCI itself, which serves groups of all affiliations. CCI also provides support for G5 applications. The CCI helps all sponsors to submit their application and provides, as the Denknopf settlement office, information about the billing process and advice, orientation and many other services before arrival. The Toolkit is a practical resource created by the Canadian Council for Refugees to provide information to groups across Canada on private sponsorship of refugees. It includes: There is a third private sponsorship flow, the Blended Visa Office Referred (BVOR) program. This is a “blended” program because the federal government and private sponsors share the financial cost of helping refugees, while sponsors are responsible for helping refugees for the duration of the sponsorship. However, you cannot recommend a family member or friend to be sponsored under this program. Refugees relocated as BVOR are returned to the Canadian government by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), usually in response to their increased vulnerability. Women and girls at risk, torture survivors, LGBTQ+ and the lack of predictable sustainable solutions are often behind the transfer to the BVOR program. The following information will help you navigate the process of finding an SAH facilitator or sponsorship for your G5 application. The Ottawa representative for the Church of Canada`s National Sponsorship Agreement provides support to constituent groups, co-sponsorship, and information and advice on the groups of five.
It supports the promotion of refugees from all parts of the world and any persecuted religion or minority group who meet the federal government`s criteria. It helps groups outside the United Church that have connected to a local community. Sponsors are encouraged to first read the refugee assistance information from www.rstp.ca before contacting the SAH. Sponsors must prove that they have a thorough settlement plan and enough money to help the refugee for 12 months from the date of arrival.
