IslamicFamily’s 2024 Applications to become a Refugee Sponsor are now open.
We look forward to supporting our community to bring their loved ones to Edmonton.
IslamicFamily is a federally-approved Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) able to help families with strong connections to the Edmonton community privately sponsor refugees. IslamicFamily provides support to private co-sponsors throughout the application process. Since 2015, IslamicFamily has supported the sponsorship of more than 400 refugees through partnerships with the Mennonite Central Committee and the Catholic Archdiocese.
