How to Sponsor a Refugee to Canada

Sponsor A Refugee

Although Canada is a peaceful country and we have freedom of speech, freedom to do as we please and have the ability to lead a rather normal life it isn’t so for many people all around the world. When a country is stricken with war and famine all someone could ever dream of is ending up in a country where they don’t have to fear for their lives anymore.

The Government of Canada has made it possible to sponsor a Refugee. You are able to sponsor a refugee for up to 3 years. While they are here you would provide them with all necessities and financially support them.

Would you like to help someone in need?

This is a great opportunity to help someone and their family escape the situation they are facing in their home country. Please keep in mind that the individual being sponsored must pass medical exams and have police clearance. A group of 5 or more Permanent Residents over the age of 18 are eligible to sponsor the individual. If you do make the decision to sponsor a Refugee you must be there to emotionally them for the duration of their stay.

Effective October 19, 2012, community sponsors may only sponsor applicants who are recognized as refugees by either the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees or a foreign state.

Customer Reviews

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.

I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
