How do I sponsor a refugee?

Mark Bigland-Pritchard

In Canada, private citizens are able to rescue people internationally from the misery of the refugee experience and support them through the process of adapting to Canadian society. This podcast is for people who want to explore this experience of sponsorship. We will take you through the practicalities, hear from sponsors and newcomers, and look at the root causes behind the global crisis of forced displacement.

Mennonite Central Committee was the first organization to sign a contract with the Canadian government to manage private sponsorship, back in 1979. Many things have changed since then, but this podcast draws on the experience of many people within MCC.
