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.

Migrating is a hard task for anyone. Finding a job is even harder. Once I got a job offer, things started moving rapidly. So, I called used VisaPlace (Niren and associates) to assist with the process. Rania and Richard deserve the utmost respect in getting the job done. They have been patient with me and some set backs. Very professional.! Hands down, money was well spent. Thanks Rania and Richard, you make an awesome team. You'll definitely have a repeat customer with me !! I was very impressed at how well they were organized and had a positive experience. Very good and professional work led to a successful outcome. I highly recommend using VisaPlace.
