For refugees outside of Canada:
AURA is not able to consider applications directly from refugees outside of Canada. If you are a refugee wanting to come to Canada, please do not call our office as we will not be able to help you. We advise you to contact/register with the UNHCR.

For relatives/friends in Canada who want to sponsor someone who is overseas:
At AURA, we cannot submit as many applications as we want. The government gives us a number (allocations) that determines how many people we can name for sponsorship in one year. We receive a very large number of requests, compared to a very small number of allocations. We are not considering additional cases at this time.
If you would like AURA to keep your contact information on file as someone who is interested in sponsorship, please fill out the information here:
*Note that by completing this information you are not opening a case file with us, and this is not a waiting list. If we are in a position to consider new cases in the future, we will contact people who have previously submitted information here.
