HOWEVER OUR WORK IS NOT DONE! THE REFUGEES STILL NEED HELP.

PRIVATELY SPONSORED REFUGEES AREN'T ENTITLED TO GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE DURING THE PERIOD OF THEIR SPONSORSHIP. THEIR INCOME MUST BE PROVIDED BY THEIR SPONSORS AND VOLUNTEER COMMUNITY GROUPS. WE MUST HELP

MOST RESETTLED REFUGEES ARRIVE IN CANADA WITH A SIGNIFICANT DEBT BURDEN, SINCE THEY ARE EXPECTED TO REPAY THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT FOR THEIR TRANSPORTATION TO CANADA AS WELL AS THE COST OF THEIR MEDICAL EXAMINATION BEFORE COMING TO CANADA. THIS MEANS REFUGEE FAMILIES OFTEN BEGIN LIFE IN CANADA WITH A DEBT OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
