About Nest

Nest Saskatoon welcomes your participation.  We are a small group of about a dozen people who help to bring refugee women and their families to Saskatoon.

Our Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH) is the Canadian Lutheran World Relief based in Vancouver.

There are 84 Sponsorship Agreement Holders in Canada. Many of them are churches. Sponsorship Agreement Holders work with the Canadian government to bring refugees to the country.  Each year the Canadian government decides how many refugees to accept. This year the government allowed the 84 SAHs to sponsor  2,000 people, including children.
