Dear Sponsoring Community,

I’m writing to share with you information about the next upcoming RSTP training session in Edmonton, Alberta.

I would also like to inform you that as of July 4th, 2017, RSTP now has a Trainer established in Edmonton, Alberta. I'm pleased to be that Trainer and look forward to working closely with sponsors and stakeholders engaged in the Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) Program throughout Edmonton and Alberta.

In-person training sessions will begin to be regularly scheduled in Edmonton, starting with multiple training sessions on a variety of sponsorship topics that will be announced in the coming weeks.

The first session that will be organized in Edmonton will be on the topic of Sponsoring as Group of Five. All those interested are invited to be in attendance for this free public training session. Please find further information on this training session below:
