Sponsoring a refugee: how does it work?

How do I sponsor a refugee?

Jan 28 2023 • 25 mins

In this episode, Kate and Mark talk through the various schemes for Canadian private refugee sponsorship - PSR, BVOR, JAS, OAS, OYW - each of which meets a somewhat different need. They then move on to how to get started with a sponsorship through Mark's programme at MCC Saskatchewan.

We will continue to go into detail in the next 3 or 4 episodes about what is involved in taking on this work, guided by respectful relationships and by the needs of the people you are helping. In later episodes we will run interviews with newcomers and with sponsorship groups about their experience, and we will look at some of the reasons why so many people worldwide are displaced from their homes and communities.
