Are you interested in supporting Syrian refugees? Are you able to work in a team and raise money to support a Syrian family?

The five-year civil war in Syria has displaced over 12 million people, many of whom have no hope of returning home. Refugee sponsorship  in Canada offers a new life to the most vulnerable people affected by this war. Can you help? 

Please come to our Information Session to hear from LifeLine Syria, a non-profit organization that recruits, trains and assists sponsor groups as they welcome and support Syrian families coming to Canada. 

What are sponsor groups? The Canadian private refugee sponsorship program is the only of its kind in the world that allows ordinary citizens to sponsor refugees and bring them to safety to Canada. Through this program, any five Canadian citizens or permanent residents can form or join a sponsorship team, and with a fund-raised or available financial requirement, they will be able to bring a Syrian family or individual to safety in Canada 

Want to learn more? This information session will provide an overview of the Syrian refugee crisis, explain the private refugee sponsorship program, and lay out ways of involvement and volunteering in this domain.
