Workshop: Sponsors Responsibilities: Before & After Arrival

Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) invites you to participate in the workshop: Sponsors Responsibilities: Before & After Arrival. Community Sponsors & Group of Five Sponsors

This workshop will provide an in-depth look at the financial and settlement responsibilities of sponsors under the Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) program, including: how long sponsors are expected to provide financial support to refugees sponsored under the PSR program; situations that may change the amount of financial support that sponsors are expected to provide once the refugees arrive in Canada; and, an overview of sponsors’ settlement responsibilities under the program and how settlement agencies can assist sponsors with fulfilling their settlement responsibilities.

The workshop covers legal requirements, settlement planning, available resources, and the role of settlement agencies in facilitating the settlement process. Sponsors will participate in interactive activities and group discussions to learn from each other. By the end of the workshop, sponsors will better understand their responsibilities and resources to support the successful integration of newcomers into their community.
