Sponsor A Refugee

You can help refugees find a safe home in our community. Here’s how:

  • Donate to Kamloops Immigrant Services’ Refugee Fund and help refugee families who require additional support and services. Your donation will support a family’s specific needs, such as food security, youth programming, long-term trauma services, purchasing a vehicle and insurance payments. Donate


If you’d like to get involved as a sponsor volunteer, you can do so through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) program. The PSR program helps groups sponsor eligible refugees abroad. You must be part of a group or community sponsor organization in order to sponsor a refugee. For more information, guidance and training on sponsoring via the Government of Canada’s PSR program:

  • Refugees and Friends Together (RAFT) is a Kamloops-based group of volunteers that helps refugees resettle. More information
  • The Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative works to assist and inspire countries around the world to open new pathways for refugee protection. More information
  • The Refugee Sponsorship Training Program provides training and support to Canadian refugee sponsorship groups, Sponsorship Agreement Holders and sponsored refugees. More information
