AURA has developed a series of workshops that train and develop sponsoring groups in the myriad of subject areas that are needed for successful settlement. AURA’s workshops are designed to suit the diverse needs of each Refugee Sponsoring Group.
Workshops at the AURA office can accommodate 10 to 50 people, while off site workshops are flexible and can be adjusted to meet the needs of any number of participants.
Information Session for Refugee Sponsorship
With over 60 million refugees around the world right now, many Canadians are directly getting involved in order to help. AURA represents the Anglican Diocese of Toronto and the Toronto Conference of the United Church of Canada as a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. In this capacity AURA facilities the Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) by working with a coalition of churches and affiliated organizations to help refugees.
The AURA Information Session for Refugee Sponsorship introduces anyone to refugee sponsorship and answers the following questions:
•Who Are Refugees?
•What is Refugee Sponsorship?
•What are refugee sponsors responsible for?
•How do you form a refugee sponsoring group with AURA?
•How do you request a refugee case from AURA?
