Dear Sponsors,

The Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) are hosting workshops in September 2018 in Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver and Saskatoon for individuals interested in submitting applications under the Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) program as a Group of Five or a Community Sponsor, and sponsoring refugees through the Blended Visa Office Referred (BVOR) program.

Attendees will learn about:

*         How to complete the new application forms released on May 01, 2018;

*         IRCC's monitoring and assurance framework for PSR applications; and,

*         How Groups of Five and Community Sponsors can sponsor refugees identified for resettlement by IRCC and UNHCR through the BVOR program.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to provide feedback to IRCC on the new forms and requirements.
