The Qualicum Refugee Sponsorship Group is a network of community volunteers who have sponsored and are supporting a refugee family in the Qualicum area of Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada.

Leading the efforts is a core group of 11 volunteers who coordinated the fund raising and sponsorship process and who signed the sponsorship agreement on behalf of the network. The core group is now coordinating the settlement process which began in July 2016.

Updates will be posted periodically on this website within the limits of maintaining the privacy of the sponsored family.

We welcome the help and support from everyone in the Qualicum area and beyond. Volunteers are currently involved mainly in driving the adults to/from language classes and work and in tutoring various members of the family.
