Registry of Sponsorship Groups

Once you register your sponsorship group with Refugee 613, you will be able to receive important and useful information specific to private sponsors in Ottawa. When more Arabic interpretation services are launched, when a local business has a discount service to offer refugees or when Refugee 613 has new workshops on housing, health or cultural sensitivity, we'll use this list to let you know. The registry will also enable us to better understand the size and scope of the city's private sponsorship efforts — how many groups there are, what needs they have and how we can better support their efforts.

Refugee 613 will not make your contact information public. However, by registering with us, you agree to the occasional and limited sharing of your group's contact information with a small number of key partners working on refugee sponsorship, such as local settlement agencies and other service providers. We will screen all proposed messages to ensure only communication with clear value to sponsorship groups is circulated.
