Dear Colleagues,

Please be informed that the Turkey Pilot Project has come to an end, and
below is a statement from CIC about this development. Regards, Yosief
____

Following its successful implementation, CIC will be ending the SAH Pilot
Project for Turkey.  Under this pilot, a selection of sponsorship
applications was submitted to Ankara in order to determine the Government
of Turkey’s willingness to provide exit permits to SAH-sponsored refugees
meeting certain criteria.



With the end of the pilot, there will no longer be a moratorium or
restrictions on cases that SAHs may submit for refugees in Turkey.
However, it appears that success in obtaining exit clearance from the
Government of Turkey now requires only that the refugee be officially
registered with the local Turkish authorities. We have therefore modified
our guidelines (English version attached with French to follow) towards
assisting sponsors in determining which cases are likely to receive exit
permits.



The granting of exit permits remains the prerogative of the Government of
Turkey. While there is no guarantee that a particular case will be granted
exit permission, meeting the criteria identified in the guidelines will
increase the likelihood that the sponsored refugees will be authorized to
leave Turkey for resettlement to Canada. These guidelines are applicable to
refugees sponsored by SAHs, G5s and Community Sponsors.



Please be reminded that SAHs will continue to require sufficient cap spaces
to sponsor all family members included in the application, except for
Syrians or Iraqis, for which spaces are not currently required.
