Self-Assessment Tool for Groups of Five

Groups of Five must meet specific criteria before if they wish to sponsor (resettle) a refugee from abroad to Canada. If you are a member of a Group of Five or are considering to form a Group of Five, then this Self-Assessment Tool will help you determine your and your group’s eligibility.

Disclaimer: Please note that this Self-Assessment Tool has been developed to guide you in your preparations and is not an official assessment of your group, nor does it guarantee that your application will be accepted by CIC’s Centralized Processing Office in Winnipeg (CPO-W) or replace legal advice. For information about the refugee applicant’s eligibility, please visit Are you eligible for private sponsorship to Canada? section or contact us.
