Jan 28 2023 • 26 mins

Getting the paperwork right can be really important when dealing with Canadian officials! So in this episode Kate and Mark talk through the government forms that need to be completed in order to be able to sponsor someone - together with a warning about the length of time that it can take between submitting the application and the newcomers' arrival. Besides the government paperwork, the relationship between the Sponsorship Agreement Holder and the sponsorship team is important to the success of the sponsorship - so they talk a bit about the paperwork that gets that started too.

After this episode, there will be just one more podcast episode and one youtube video 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.
