The Salvation Army Immigrant and Refugee Services
Guide to Action.pdf
Based on a national, interdenominational study of how congregations are assisting immigrants (
the Guide to Action provides multiple options for working with newcomers to Canada. It is intentionally designed to provide an opportunity for discussion of how the Bible can motivate our care for immigrants, refugees and migrant workers and provokes reflection on the many ways God's people are responding across Canada.
IMMIGRANT & REFUGEE SERVICES
The Salvation Army is an international Christian organization that provides support in 400 communities across Canada and over 100 countries around the world.
Settlement Assistance for newcomers is available at many of our local Ministry Units. To find the programs and services available in your area, please use the “Find the Salvation Army” search option.
PRIVATE SPONSORSHIP OF REFUGEES PROGRAM
The Salvation Army is a Sponsorship Agreement Holder, allowing us to process applications through the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program.
There are various sponsorship opportunities available to our Ministry Units through the Private Sponsorship of Refugees program, the Blended Visa-Office Referred program, or the Joint-Assisted Sponsorship program. If your Ministry Unit is interested in being involved in refugee sponsorship, please contact the Immigrant & Refugee Services Liaison for more information.
SYRIAN AND IRAQI REFUGEE SPONSORSHIP
The Canadian government has committed to bringing 10,000 Syrian refugees and 3,000 Iraqi refugees to Canada over the next few years. The Salvation Army has been actively involved in working with families in Canada to sponsor their loved ones through the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program. If you are a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident interested in sponsoring Syrian or Iraqi refugees, please contact the Immigrant & Refugee Services Liaison for more information about a Family-Linked Private Sponsorship.
The Salvation Army is partnering with Lifeline Syria in the aim to sponsor 1,000 Syrian refugees to be resettled in the Greater Toronto Area.
We cannot process the number of requests that would originate in other countries. Therefore, requests to sponsor a refugee from overseas must come from people who are currently residing in Canada and are Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents of Canada.
