Guidance from IRCC for Private Sponsors Regarding COVID-19
IRCC acknowledges the significant impact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on the refugee sponsorship community. Refugee sponsors have an important role to play in ensuring that sponsored refugees continue to receive the standard levels of support while taking into account COVID-19 specific guidelines created by governments at all levels.
IRCC have produced a document* intended to assist sponsors in understanding how cases in process are affected by COVID-19 and, for refugees already in Canada, how sponsors can continue to fulfill their sponsorship role while also addressing the unique settlement needs of sponsored refugees during this difficult time.
