SUCCESS Immigrant Settlement & Integration Program (ISIP) and Vancouver School Board Settlement Worker In School (SWIS) would like to jointly invite Sponsorship Agreement Holders in Vancouver to a community meeting who has currently or in the process of applying to sponsor a refugee/refugee family from Syria. We also would like to invite those who would like to learn more about becoming a Private Sponsor.

Sponsorship Agreement Holders will have the opportunity to learn about:

*First steps to helping Privately Sponsorship Refugee (PSR) settle in Canada (BC health care, transportation,
enrolment in local schools)

*Settlement, Employment and English learning services in their local community and how to refer PSRs to these
services

* Key resources and information to help SAH

* Local education, Health and Recreation Services for PSRs

* How to access donations and supports for PSRs in their community

Sponsorship Agreement Holders will have the opportunity to hear about the experiences and perspectives of refugees who have already come to Canada and will have the opportunity to network with other SAHs, and identify any gaps and needs that are outstanding in their communities.
