Designate a spokesperson for the collective sponsoring program

You must designate a spokesperson who will communicate on your behalf with the Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration.

For groups of 2 to 5 natural persons, this person is chosen from among your members. Even if you designate a spokesperson, all the members of your group must:

  • Make a solidary undertaking to the refugees you wish to sponsor:
  • Complete and sign the undertaking application form.

You are all responsible for honouring the obligations of the other members in your undertaking.

For legal persons, this person is designated by resolution of the Board of Directors.

Your spokesperson will be the only person authorized to:

  • Open an account in Arrima;
  • Submit your applications;
  • Do the necessary follow-up.

The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration may not communicate with anyone other than your spokesperson and, as applicable, your representative (mandatary).
