Guide to the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program

This guide is being updated. The new version will be available this summer.

As of May 1, 2018, new forms and guides have come into effect, for the Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) Program. These documents apply to all PSR streams including Sponsorship Agreement Holders, Groups of Five and Community Sponsors.

There is a 30-day grace period. After June 1, 2018, we will either return or refuse any applications not submitted on the new forms. We won’t return refused applications.

This publication is intended for private sponsors (i.e., Sponsorship Agreement Holders (SAHs) and their Constituent Groups (CG), Groups of Five (G5) and Community Sponsors (CS)) in Canada who are interested in sponsoring refugees from abroad.
