Unlike individuals resettled through the Government-Assisted Refugee (GAR) Program, privately sponsored refugees are not selected or destined by the government to a particular community in Canada.
In this webinar, Khwaka Kukubo (United Church of Canada), Rebecca Walker (World Renew) and Aleks Dughman-Manzur (Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto) share the case selection processes at their respective Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) organizations.
Join this webinar to learn more about how a SAH might handle a request for sponsorship and ultimately makes a decision on whom to sponsor considering allocations (quotas) and eligibility criteria in the broader context of the global refugee crises.
Time has been allotted for Q&A at the end of the webinar, so join the conversation.
Time: 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
