Welcoming Refugees

There are many ways to help refugees and newcomers to Ontario

Welcoming Syrian Refugees to Ontario

SPARK is proud to play a role in welcoming refugees from the Syrian conflict to Ontario. There are many ways you can help give refugee families a warm welcome and a better life.

 

Volunteer

Search SPARK for specific opportunities related to refugee welcome and resettlement efforts or check with your local volunteer centre on ways you can help refugees settling in your community. If you have an idea about helping and want to share it, you can search SPARK for organizations that work with refugees impacted by the Syrian conflict and contact them directly to discuss your idea.

If you are a lawyer or educator who wants to volunteer your time and expertise, please visit the Ontario government's website.

Donate and Sponsor

For more information about how to donate money, toys, clothing, furniture or housing OR to sponsor a family in need, visit the Ontario government's website .

Share Your Ideas

If you are an organization working to help welcome and resettle refugees from the Syrian conflict, please download this PDF on posting opportunities on SPARK. 

Share your stories about how you have participated in the refugee effort as a donor, a sponsor, a volunteer or an agency who is helping Syrian refugees resettle in Ontario.
