Accompagnement Québec is now offered to sponsored refugees

Accompagnement Québec, the free and personalized service offered by the Ministère de l'Immigration, de la Francisation et de l'Intégration (MIFI) to immigrants to facilitate their integration in Québec, will be offered this week to a new category of immigrants: sponsored refugees.

In the deployment of Accompagnement Québec, this new step will allow the Ministère to ensure that sponsored refugees receive the settlement and integration services that their sponsor has committed to offer them and ensure the quality of the sponsor’s assumption of responsibility during the duration of the commitment.

After they arrive in Québec, sponsored refugees will be registered on Arrima for Accompagnement Québec with the help of their sponsor.

Adapted to meet the needs of newcomers, Accompagnement Québec for sponsored refugees includes:

  • two weeks after arrival, a first information meeting on the settlement and integration procedures;
  • three months after arrival, a meeting to follow up on the settlement and integration steps that have been completed and those still to be completed;
  • no later than 15 months after arrival, a follow-up meeting to take stock of the steps completed and identify needs to continue integration.

Initially, the service will be offered to sponsored refugees arriving after August 16. Thereafter, the MIFI will contact sponsored refugees who arrived after January 1, 2021.

Sponsored refugees established in Québec whose sponsorship period has ended can also register with Accompagnement Québec, just like any other immigrant, and benefit from the services that meet their needs.
