Crisis in Syria: How Can You Help?

How Can You Help?
Residents of Newfoundland and Labrador can help by providing support through the Private Refugee Sponsorship Program. In 2014, the Association for New Canadians was designated as a Sponsorship Agreement Holder, allowing the agency to coordinate the private sponsorship of refugees to the province. As part of this program, individuals and groups are able to partner with the Association for New Canadians to co-sponsor refugees overseas. As a co-sponsor, individuals and groups commit to providing financial support to the refugee(s) during their initial 12 months in Canada. If an individual or business is unable to act as a co-sponsor, but would still like to help, they can donate to the Association's Private Refugee Sponsorship Fund.
If you would like to contribute or would like more information on this program, please contact:
