A Constituent Group (CG) is a group that has been authorized in writing by the SAH to act on its behalf for the sponsorship of refugees. An SAH may authorize any number of CGs to sponsor as part of its agreement and to assist sponsored refugees. Each SAH sets its own criteria for CG recognition. The CGs have the following characteristics: A group may submit an obligation to sponsor a foreign refugee (refugee sponsor). It is also possible for a sah to sponsor a refugee who has been identified abroad, either through the Blended Visa Office Referred (BVOR), Visa Office Referred (VOR) or Joint Assistance Sponsorship (JAS) program. The BVOR and JAS programs provide refugee profiles available on the RSTP website. For more information, contact RSTP. Once a sponsorship business has been received, it is very likely that they will arrive in Canada quickly, as they have already been deemed eligible and are, in most cases, licensed to Canada. LGBTIQ2 refugees are among the most vulnerable refugees in the world. They face physical, sexual and verbal abuse and discrimination, and many are sentenced to prison and death.

It is important to consider the personal stories and special circumstances of refugees before committing to sponsor. The following situations are common: Canada`s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act determines who can apply for protection as a refugee. The person must apply outside of Canada and, in short, does not have to live in his or her country of origin because of a well-founded fear of persecution, the consequences of civil war or armed conflict, or the continued denial of his or her basic human rights. There are several types of refugee sponsorships that are described below. By signing the sponsorship agreement, an SAH is legally responsible, but it is not limited to the following: the Blended VOR initiative aims to resettle refugees identified by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and submitted to Canadian visa offices abroad.
