Diocesan Refugee Sponsorship

The Diocese of Charlottetown supports Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada’s Private Sponsorship of Refugee (PSR) Program and we would like to participate where possible in welcoming and sponsoring newcomers (refugees) to Canada and Prince Edward Island.

As a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) for more than 35 years, we have been active participants in supporting and promoting the formation of refugee sponsoring groups within parishes throughout P.E.I. These groups (called Constituent Groups) care for the financial and logistical needs of refugee families for a minimum of one year.

If, as a parish community you are interested in sponsoring a refugee family and want further information please contact the Diocesan Refugee Sponsorship Advisory Board at 1-902-368-8005

To make a financial donation in support of Diocesan refugee sponsorship efforts, please forward your donation (note: make your cheque out to the Diocese of Charlottetown) to the address noted above.
