Where are the Syrian refugees?

The CBC's Ontario Today aired an interesting show today about what it takes to sponsor refugees, featuring the efforts of Lifeline Syria, a group that is trying to get 1000 Syrian refugees into the GTA, and others. Our very own Raghu called in and voiced some of the frustrations our group is facing:

Where are the Syrians on the sponsorship list? Why are there  bottlenecks to find sponsorship agreement holders? Why does the Canadian government make it so difficult for a motivated group such as ours to sponsor refugees?

Listen to Ontario Today: What it takes to sponsor refugees


  1. Heard about your group on the CBC. Was hoping to get in touch. No contact information anywhere.

  2. I live in Vancouver, but would like to help your group. What can I do?
    Do you need financial assistance?

  3. Hi anonymous1, you can get in touch with us through the following email address: We are only a private group of sponsors, however. Please find links to refugee sponsorship resources on the right-hand sidebar of this blog. Anonymous2, thanks so much for your offer to help! We will let you know as soon as we start fundraising.
