This training targets refugee sponsors, staff members of NGOs, inter-governmental agencies, settlement service providers, and people interested in sponsoring refugees.
By the end of ten weeks of intensive course, students are expected to have a solid understanding of the Canadian Private Refugees Sponsorship program (PSR). In addition to having acquired an awareness of the international context in which the PSR operates.
