The private sponsorship program for refugees are relatively processed faster than other programs. The Canadian immigration authority has instructed immigration officers worldwide to speed up the processing time. This includes speeding the criminal, background and medical checks for refugees who are applying under the group of five sponsorship and other sponsorship who are sponsored by community or charity organizations. The government is trying their best to help and resettle more refugees especially in 2017.

Limiting the number of accepted applications:

On December 19, 2016, the Canadian immigration authority decided to a limit with regards to the number of applications accepted in 2017. This limit was put in place to let Group of Five and Community Sponsors submit applications to sponsor up to an additional 1000 Syrian and Iraqi refugees under a specific exemption.

The meaning of the exemption:

The meaning of the exemption is that Iraqi and Syrian refugees can submit a refugee application under the refugee sponsorship program without the need to provide evidence of refugee recognition status document from a state or the United Nation.

The number of received application:

On January 25, 2016, the Canadian immigration authority has received the number of applications accepted for Iraqi and Syrians which is 1000 applications. This means that all Iraqi and Syrians who do not have refugee status confirmed by the UN or a state; have to wait until December 19, 2017 to submit their applications again.

The positive side in our opinion:

Refugees who are recognized as refugees by the UN

The positive side that still left is that this limit does not include the refugees who can provide a proof of recognition from the United Nation from all nationalities (Iraqi, Syrians, Yemeni… etc.). For example: A refugee from Yemen who has a recognition certificate of refugee status from the UN and at the same time has 5 Canadian sponsors who can sponsor him/her financially and emotionally for a period of at least 12 months; can apply under the Group of five refugee sponsorship program.
