Sponsoring Refugees

As a Sponsorship Agreement Holder with the Government of Canada, we focus on assisting individuals and other churches in Alberta in submitting refugee applications. Every year the Canadian government allots FAC a certain number of refugee sponsorship spaces. The spaces are limited and we know the need is great. Please Note: our priorities for sponsorship in 2020 is for single women with children or single women.

  • At this time, we do not have the financial resources to assist with sponsorships. You must be able to financially provide all finances towards the sponsorship into a trust fund.
    • If you are interested in donating towards sponsorship please mark “refugee sponsorship” on your donations. You can also email us for more info.
  • If you’re looking for refugee sponsorship, please make sure you have obtained all of the required documents and that you are eligible for refugee sponsorship. Find more information on this here.
  • If you are not located in Calgary we are unable to assist with your request. A list of all the other SAHs across Canada can be found here.

Note: We do not accept walk-in appointments for refugee sponsorship, please email us to make an appointment.

Supporting Refugees on Arrival

As a church, we also help refugees already sponsored by FAC when they arrive in Canada. There are so many ways we can help – from the official details and financial support, to helping with English skills, and simply building new friendships. Together, we can help make sponsored refugees feel welcome and a little less overwhelmed. Contact us to ask how you can help welcome FAC sponsored refugees to Calgary or mark “refugee sponsorship” on your donation envelope to support a refugee family financially.
