• The Diocese of Edmonton is a Government of Canada Sponsorship Agreement Holder. We are recognized as an agency that can support refugees as they resettle in Canada. This is done primarily through church groups who decide that they want to take on the role of sponsor.
  • Our beloved Diocesan Refugee Coordinator, Gail Millard, is stepping down in 2022. An announcement is yet to be made about the person replacing her in that role.
  • “Welcoming the Stranger” is designed to help groups “pray, give, learn, and advocate on conflict, migration, refugees and food security.” The resource can be used in part or in whole at any other time of the year.
