Refugee Sponsorship & Support
Since 1979 MCC has helped refugees who have no prospect of returning home to start a new life in Canada through a sponsorship program.
Sponsorship is a one year commitment. The sponsoring group helps the refugee family with practical things like housing, finances, and grocery shopping, as well as offering friendship and emotional support.
While the legal sponsorship lasts a year, the relationships that are formed are often transforming and everlasting. Throughout the stages of the sponsorship process, MCC provides the sponsors with training opportunities and support.
