In December 2015, both Entertainment Partners and Canada Film Capital made a financial contribution to help support the Directors Guild of Canada’s efforts to welcome a Syrian refugee family to Canada.
The Directors Guild led group has submitted their application and are currently waiting to be matched with a family. Of the 17 sponsorship groups in the program, 3 have welcomed their families and 7 more are matched and will be welcoming their families over the next month or two. The Directors Guild led group is expecting to be matched very soon as well and are also involved in efforts to get the government to shift more cases to private sponsorships to speed up the process.
Keeping checking the blog for updates, which we will post as soon as we get an update.
