Collective sponsorship

No new sponsorship applications before August 15, 2018.

Due to the high number of refugees who already have an application in process, the Ministère has decided to extend the suspension in the intake of new sponsorship applications until August 15, 2018.

This suspension affects refugees of all origins and pertains to all new applications, whether they are presented by organizations or groups of 2 to 5 people, or involve joint sponsorship.

While respecting the yearly targets for admission, the arrival of people whose applications are still being processed will likely extend up until 2020.

Review of the Collective Sponsorship Program

The Ministère has carried out major review of its Collective Sponsorship Program. The changes that were made are largely based on the consultations that were held following the reception of Syrian refugees. Several orientations were proposed in order to improve the programs related to humanitarian immigration. To get an idea of the work being done by the Ministère, you can read the summary (PDF, 50 kb) of this report.
