The Westshore Refugee Sponsorship Group formed and raised funds to sponsor a family of refugees, who arrived in Victoria in 2018. The official one-year period of sponsorship for our family has now ended.

We want to thank you, the community, local churches, volunteers, and everyone else who helped resettle the B. family into their new life away from war and the incredible danger in the area to which they initially fled.

The family will now continue their renewed life in Canada, building upon the strong foundation that Canada’s world renowned Private Sponsorship Program has given them through the generosity of many and the blessing of God.

Other sponsorship groups in our community are continuing this same work for other individuals and families currently trapped in dangerous and unimaginable circumstances. If you are interested in becoming part of the their rescue, please contact Tim Davis at
