Exciting news! In preparation for the BVOR refugee sponsorship program opening up again in early 2022, the Yukon Cares Board of Directors has unanimously voted to pursue sponsoring a new refugee family to settle in Whitehorse! We are hoping to sponsor a family with 2 or 3 children. BVOR families have already been vetted by the Federal Government and are ready to travel, so once we are matched with a family, they can arrive in Whitehorse within 2-3 months!
We are very excited about the chance to sponsor another family as soon as possible! We will be seeking volunteers for a new settlement committee early in the new year, so keep watching this space if you are interested in that one-year commitment.
