Dear Sponsors,

The Refugee Sponsorship Training Program (RSTP) and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) are hosting an Information Session on March 19 in Halifax 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.

The Information Session will include:

*         A review of the application forms;

*         The requirements for Groups of Five and Community Sponsors that came into effect on May 01, 2018;

*         How IRCC processes PSR applications submitted by Groups of Five and Community Sponsors;

*         IRCC's post-arrival financial and settlement support standards for PSR applications;

*         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.
