Support a Refugee Family in T.O


We are a diverse group of people living in and around Toronto, coming together to sponsor and support a refugee family during their first year of settlement. As a group, we feel moved by the ongoing migrant crises around the world and desire to take action.

Our group will be sponsoring a Somali woman and her 3 young children, expected to arrive in Canada shortly.

Your donation will assist this refugee family with their living costs and daily needs as well as with the high cost of rent in Toronto. All funds raised will go directly to the support of this family. 

Thank you for your generous donation and support!

Who we are:

We are a diverse group of people living in and around Toronto, coming together to sponsor and support a refugee family during their first year of settlement.  

Where you're from:

We are from Toronto and the surrounding areas.

Your relationship to the parties you're raising funds for:

Under the government of Canada's private refugee sponsorship program, we are responsible for settling the family during their first 12 months in Canada - this includes supporting to find housing, health care,  education, and social support. It also includes all financial support, assisting budgeting and obtaining funds from government programs, and the like.  

How the funds will be used:

The funds will be used to support the family's cost of living in Toronto (food, rent, clothing, furniture), as well as repaying the flight loans that the family owes for their travel to Canada. The funds will be withdrawn, and then placed in a bank account belonging to the mother which will be opened soon after she arrives in Canada. If timelines require, we will hold that money on trust in a special bank account until she is able to open the account.
