Register as a private sponsor

Stay informed and connected on sponsorship issues

Your sponsorship group is getting rolling and you need more support? Join the many Ottawa and area sponsorship groups already signed up to Refugee 613's registry of private sponsors. It's a great way to receive news on training for sponsors, services for newcomers, local events and changes in refugee policies.

The registry is also a valuable tool for helping Refugee 613 understand the size, scope and needs of the city's growing population of sponsors and refugees. We occasionally survey members of the registry on the progress of their sponsorship or their information and training needs, and share that feedback with settlement partners, local decision-makers and media. We promise not to share your contact details — you will only receive communication from Refugee 613.

It's free, it's easy and it could make a big difference in the quality of your sponsorship experience. Feel free to have more than one member of your sponsorship group on the list — the more members getting information, the better.

Please email us at info@refugee613.ca if you would like more information about the registry or anything else related to private sponsorship.
