What programs are there for refugees’ family members to come to Canada?

Refugees (both Government-Assisted and Privately Sponsored) can apply to sponsor immediate family members under the One Year Window opportunity provision. This program is for refugees who have been in Canada for less than a year and are sponsoring a spouse or common-law partner, dependent children, and children of dependent children. The sponsor group is also responsible for the costs of supporting family members who have come to Canada through this program. More information is available from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website.

For information on other sponsorship programs, visit Settlement.Org or the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website.
