By checking the “No” box, your sponsorship and PA permanent residence applications will be rejected. Sponsorship parties (also known as sponsors or sponsoring groups) include anyone who signs the sponsorship undertaking as part of an SAH sponsorship application. Canada`s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act specifies who can apply for protection as a refugee. The person must apply from outside Canada and, in short, must not be able to live in their country of origin because of a well-founded fear of persecution, the effects of civil war or armed conflict, or the continued denial of their fundamental human rights. There are different types of refugee sponsorships, which are described below. Quebec has its own refugee sponsorship process. For sponsors in Quebec, visit the Sponsorship of Refugees in Quebec. How does the “mixed” model work? Refugees resettled under the BLENDED VOR initiative receive income assistance from the federal resettlement assistance program (RAP) for the first 6 months after arrival. They are also fully covered by the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP) for a full 12 months in addition to provincial health insurance. Sponsors are responsible for the remaining 6 months of financial support. The SAO and its sponsoring group also have a responsibility to regulate and emotionally support refugees during the 12-month sponsorship period. Many organizations have signed sponsorship agreements with the Canadian government to help refugees from abroad resettle in Canada. These organizations are called sponsorship agreement holders.
You can sponsor refugees yourself or work with other members of the community to sponsor refugees. Before adding a family member or PA member, carefully consider the definition of what constitutes a family member under the RPIR. De facto, family members are not family members under the regulations and cannot be added to a sponsorship application. Foreign nationals may be sponsored from outside Canada if they immigrate through the federal government or from private sources or sponsorship agreement holders who know or do not know the person they are helping. These groups, which sponsor a person located outside of Canada, consist of one or more individuals and are generally humanitarian organizations, religious organizations, ethnic groups and may operate at the local, regional or national level. These groups choose to support refugees immigrating to Canada from other countries in collaboration with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. Refugee sponsoring organizations may submit multiple applications to IRCC. The PA and their family members must complete the permanent residence forms.
As a sponsor, you should remind the AP of our specific definition of what constitutes a family member in the RPIR. In the area of private sponsorship, the sponsoring group has direct knowledge of certain refugees or families abroad that have been brought to its attention. Eligible refugees in the following two categories may be funded under the CSP program: When ROC-O receives your sponsorship application, you can expect: Once we receive these documents, we will add the new family members to the PA application and verify if the sponsorship is still valid. Do not use this form to appoint sponsor representatives to meet residency requirements. Instead, use IMM 5956 Appointment of Representatives on the Intended Community of Establishment form. Complete this section if you would like related or multiple sponsorship applications to be processed at the same time, e.B. family members who want to live in a household or as a family unit in Canada. .
