Constituent Group Sponsorship Training Videos


This series of 12 videos provides a clear and easily accessible learning tool for members of Constituent Groups (CGs) sponsoring refugees through ICA and Canada’s Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program or Blended Visa Office-Referred Program. Each video will guide you through the various stages of sponsorship with detailed information. Please also review the relevant links provided with each video for additional information.

All CG members are required to watch the videos at the appropriate stages in the sponsorship process. It may be helpful for CG members to dedicate some time to watching all videos in the early stages of sponsorship and then re-visiting each video as you get to the particular stage of the sponsorship process.

At a minimum, we are asking each CG member to watch each video at least once.
