Harsh realities that brought many of our ancestors to Canada still have millions of people on the move today, seeking refuge from conflict, persecution, and climate change – a place to call home.
WHERE WE ARE: CAiRN (Communities Assisting Refugees Now!) is making an application through the Blended Visa Office-Referred Program under the auspices of Sponsorship Agreement Holder, the United Church of Canada, to sponsor a travel-ready refugee family of 3 or 4 persons currently waiting in a refugee camp or a country other than their own. Local medical, dental, and legal services have been secured.
