I am one of a group of 5 who applied for a specific Syrian family
April 1, 201 through a program called family links which no longer
exists. We were advised when following up on our application twice
over many months they did not have it. Fortunately for us we had a copy
of the fax document to send them to show it was sent.
We had experience with the Federal Government having sponsored a
Syrian family under a SAH agreement. This experience and what we
learned from that lead us to persist in following up on our second
This July they started asking us many questions and wanting copies of
already submitted documents. Part of this was likely due to their
moving of the office from Winnipeg.
The good news is that in early August the family of 6 was
interviewed in Turkey. We understand now the security check will be
undertaken which could take plus or minus 6 months.
It has been most frustrating. Had we not persisted in making contact
with the office in Winnipeg and subsequently in Ottawa over the past
15 months nothing would have happened.
I wish you success in your sponsorship.
