How will you handle the increased volume of refugees through your partnering SAH?
A SAH is a federally-approved organization, called a Sponsorship Agreement Holder. A SAH is legally mandated to process refugees from their situation abroad, through their immigration to Canada and during their first year in the country. We will be working with JIAS, and the Catholic Archdiocese of Toronto, Refugee and Resettlement office (ORAT) a leader in resettling minorities from Iraq. ORAT is committed to provide any additional training, expertise and advice to our volunteer coordinators and committees so that the community can share this responsibility of bringing persecuted Yazidi to a safe haven in the GTA.
