Information for the Public - How You Can Help

Once refugees begin to arrive in Saskatchewan, they will need your help to get settled in to their new home.

You can help in one of three ways:

1. Volunteer

Organizations from across Saskatchewan have been planning for the arrival of Syrian refugees who will be calling Saskatchewan home. In order to help continue the work that has been done, these organizations are looking for people who can volunteer their time to help people and families get familiarized with Saskatchewan – especially our climate.

Moose Jaw

Prince Albert



2. Donate

If you would prefer to donate money, instead of donating your time, there are many recognized Canadian charities and local organizations who need the funds to provide the right supports to newcomers to Saskatchewan.

Syria Emergency Relief Fund

The Government of Canada has set up the Syria Emergency Relief Fund to help support humanitarian relief efforts. Every eligible dollar donated by Canadians will be matched by the Government of Canada until December 31, 2015.

3. Sponsor a Family

The Government of Canada also has a program in place for people and organizations to privately sponsor people and families to come to Canada. You can help those fleeing the crisis in Syria by sponsoring them to come to Canada through Sponsorship Agreement Holders (SAHs).
