Refugee Sponsorship

A Group of Five (G5) is five or more Canadian citizens or permanent residents who have arranged to sponsor a refugee living abroad to come to Canada.

G5s may only sponsor applicants who are recognized as refugees by either the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) or a foreign state. The principal applicant MUST already have refugee status. Having refugee status means that an authorized body has found that an individual meets its refugee definition. This authorized body can either be the UNHCR or the government of the country (i.e., foreign state) where the refugee is now living.

Refugee sponsorship is a tangible way to be part of a solution to the global refugee crisis and can be an incredibly rewarding experience for both the sponsor and the newcomer. Using your time and resources to provide sanctuary to people fleeing war or persecution means you are instrumental in giving them space to breathe, to build a new life, to have hope. It means they have safety and they have options. It enriches our communities with diverse skills, energy and perspectives.
