Author: Right Source Immigration Canada | | Categories: Canada Immigration , Immigration Firm , Immigration Services


Canada is one of the nations to provide assistance to thousands of displaced people through government-assisted refugee sponsorship programs. It is one of the solutions to the global refugee crisis where these programs provide sanctuary to people fleeing war or persecution.

Refugee sponsoring programs allow Canadian citizens and permanent residents to provide additional opportunities for refugees living abroad to find protection and build a new life in Canada through the Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) program.

In this blog post, Right Source Immigration Canada will be explaining Group Of Five Refugee Sponsorship and the responsibilities and eligibility that come with it. They will also guide you on how the private sponsorship program works, who may be sponsored, the obligations involved, and the application process. Keep reading to know more about this program.

What is Group Of Five Refugee Sponsorship?

Group of Five (G5) Refugee Sponsorship lets five or more Canadian citizens or permanent residents sponsor a refugee or refugee family living abroad to come to Canada.

G5s may only sponsor applicants who are recognized as refugees by either the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) or a foreign state. The principal applicant MUST already have refugee status. Having refugee status means that an authorized body has found that an individual meets its refugee definition. This authorized body can either be the UNHCR or the government of the country (i.e., foreign state) where the refugee is now living.

What are the eligibility criteria for Group Of Five Refugee Sponsorship?

To be eligible, each member of the group must:

a. Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident,

b. Be at least eighteen years old,

c. Group member or his/her representative must live in the same community where the refugee is expected to settle,

d. Agree to give settlement support for the length of the sponsorship (usually one year),

e. Members of the group must provide a settlement plan.

Basically, the group sponsoring needs to provide proof that they have the money to sponsor a refugee for one year. Also, the amount of money will depend on how many refugees they want to sponsor.
