Hi Mosa,

The temporary exemption for Syrian and Iraqi nationals came to an end in January 2017. The official announcement from IRCC can be found at the following link: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/department/media/notices/2017-01-25.asp

Applications to sponsor Syrian and Iraqi nationals from Groups of Five and Community Sponsors submitted after this date must include a copy of the applicant’s refugee status document with the application package.

Further information on the ending of the exemption can be found in our FAQ at: http://www.rstp.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/FAQ-on-Public-Policy-G5-and-CS.pdf

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Best regards,

Suneet

I trust the above is of assistance.

Hello Michel and Salim

I am trying to sponsor through The Group of Five , a family of seven- a couple with five girls- one is 22 and another just turned 18. They are not refugees but I was under the impression that there is exception for Iraqi and Syrians.

I did get five sponsors . The package was returned asking of the Principle Applicant to have a Valid RSD - UNHCR MANDATE LETTER OF PROTECTION OR FOREIGN STATE DOCUMENT

Appreciate any info or advice as to how to go about it moving forward!

Thank you

Rozmin Kamani

Hi Michel,

The attached appointment card will not be accepted by ROC-O as valid proof of refugee status for a Group of Five or Community Sponsor application from Lebanon.

Hello,

I would appreciate your advice if the attached doc can be used to support a group of five application for a Syrian refugee. She is a mother with 2 young kids.
