Open Harbour works to sponsor a refugee group to begin a new life in Halifax each year. A sponsorship starts on the day of arrival and extends for the 12 months afterward. It includes financial, social, and emotional support. We greet our new Nova Scotians at the airport, set them up with a furnished apartment, enroll them in job training and English classes, help them get to medical appointments, register their children in school – and a lot more!
- To privately sponsor and resettle refugees to Halifax irrespective of circumstances or creed.
- To coordinate the settlement, integration, and empowerment of the new Nova Scotians we sponsor.
- To spread awareness of issues affecting refugees.
