Managing Expectations and Sponsorship Ethics

This workshop which will be conducted by Toronto Refugee Sponsorship Support Initiative (Toronto RSS) is intended for the private sponsors of refugees and will explore various themes including:

  • Managing expectations: What are sponsors’ and refugees’ expectations of each other, and how can expectations be managed to avoid potential conflict?
  • Code of ethics for private sponsoring groups: What are some ethical practices that private sponsors may wish to consider?
  • Power imbalance: How do power imbalances affect the relationship between sponsors and refugees, and how can they be minimized?

There will be a total of 3 workshops conducted at 3 different locations across Toronto but all these workshops will deliver the same content.  As such, private sponsors need to register for and attend one of the workshops only.
