Private Sponsors Training

Preparing For The Visa Office Interviews

The interview with the Canadian visa offices (VO) abroad is a milestone in the private sponsorship process.

To help you ace this interview, the Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) is organizing a webinar.

This webinar will walk you through the various steps by tackling the following topics:

  • Drafting the claim and knowing the refugee

  • How to prepare for the interview questions

Introductory E-Training Course

RSTP offers an online training course called Introduction to the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program two to three times a year. The 10-week course provides basic information on sponsoring overseas refugees to Canada. It is intended for people in Canada who are interested in learning about and getting involved in the private sponsorship of refugees. The objective of this training is to offer a flexible way of learning about private refugee sponsorship issues and to reach out to new and potential sponsors in remote and rural areas of Canada.

Online Courses - Refugee Mental Health: Focus on Syrian Refugees

Settlement, social service and health care providers across Canada are invited to enrol in this self-paced, online course on the mental health needs and considerations for Syrian refugees. The course and community of practice feature an inter-professional panel of experts, on hand to answer practice questions.

This training is part of the Refugee Mental Health Project, developed at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) and addresses the unique needs of refugee populations with specific focus on Syrian refugees.
