PSR: Getting Ready for Month 13

Month 13 is a turning point in the private sponsorship experience. 

After all, it marks the end of the financial commitment that sponsors had toward the refugees they sponsored. 

However, before getting there, it is important to prepare the refugees for what lays ahead. 

The Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) is organizing a webinar to help you prepare. 

The following topics will be covered: 

What Happens When A Sponsorship Breaks Down?

A sponsorship breakdown happens when sponsors are unable or unwilling to give further support to the sponsored family prior to the end of the sponsorship period (usually the first 12 months  that the family is in Canada). It is an official declaration that an irremediable failure to meet the sponsorship arrangement has occurred. The responsibility for a sponsorship breakdown may either rest with the refugees or the sponsor.
