Stay informed and connected on sponsorship issues
Your sponsorship group is getting rolling and you're looking for more support? Join the more than 140 Ottawa sponsorship groups already signed up to Refugee 613's registry of private sponsors. It's a great way to keep in touch with news on sponsorship and the services available to support newcomers. Our bulletins include news about services, events and opportunities to help you and the newcomers you are supporting.
The registry is also a valuable tool for helping Ottawa understand the size and scope of the city's growing population of sponsors and refugees. Refugee 613 occasionally surveys members of the registry for their status or reaction to changes in sponsorship, and shares that feedback with local decision-makers and media. We promise not to share the list with anyone who is not providing direct, relevant service to sponsors.
