Different Streams to be a Private Sponsor

The 1976 Immigration Act, which came into effect in 1978, was the first immigration act that clearly defined the fundamental objectives of Canadian immigration policy. It defined refugees as a distinct class of immigrants and required a mandatory responsibility on the government to plan for the future of immigration. The private sponsorship was quickly used in 1979 to sponsor Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Laotian refugees.
