Supporting Refugees in Victoria, B.C.

Greater Victoria hosts two organizations that have an agreement with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (recently renamed Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada) to privately sponsor refugees as a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH): the Anglican Diocese of B.C. and the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria. The Victoria Immigrant and Refugee Centre Society also assists in refugee settlement.

 

This page was created in response to urgent need in early 2016 when a large number of refugees were scheduled for resettlement here in Victoria. Many of those privately-sponsored and government-assisted refugees have now arrived in the Greater Victoria area.  Please visit https://refugeesforvi.wordpress.com for more information and regular updates. We will no longer be updating this page.
