Group of Five (G5): The Group of Five sponsorship program enables a group of five or more Canadians or permanent residents to sponsor refugees who have fled persecution, violence, or hardship. As sponsors, they collectively assume the financial and emotional responsibility for the refugees, assisting them in their resettlement journey.
Blended Visa Office-Referred (BVOR) Program: BVOR is a unique collaboration between the Canadian government and private sponsors. Under this program, the government covers the initial resettlement costs, while private sponsors offer emotional and settlement support. BVOR is an excellent option for sponsors looking to make a difference with reduced financial commitment.
Government-Assisted Refugees (GAR): GARs are refugees whose resettlement is primarily funded and managed by the Canadian government. While private individuals or groups can't directly sponsor GARs, they can still support their integration efforts by volunteering or donating to organizations that assist GARs.
Community Sponsorship: This program allows groups of five or more Canadians or permanent residents to sponsor refugees from abroad. Community sponsors take on the responsibility of providing financial, emotional, and settlement support to help refugees establish themselves in Canada.
Joint Assistance Sponsorship (JAS): JAS is a partnership between the government and sponsors, often used for particularly vulnerable refugees. It combines government support with financial and emotional assistance from sponsors to ensure the successful resettlement of refugees.
