To be eligible for CCR membership, your group must be a Canadian non-profit organization concerned for refugees and for the settlement in Canada of refugees and immigrants. For reasons of continuity, participation and commitment we seek organizations as Members. Individuals can become Associate Members.
All membership applications must be approved by the CCR Executive Committee. For the Committee to evaluate a CCR membership candidate the following information is needed:
a completed application form, including attached copies of:
your organization's mission statement or constitution, or a description of the work it does relating to refugees and immigrants
a copy of the last completed financial report
confirmation that your Board or Executive Committee has endorsed application for membership in the CCR (minutes from the relevant Board or Executive meeting are good)
- a cheque (or online payment if under $200) for the first year's membership
Once we receive your completed application, we will present it for approval to the next CCR Executive Committee meeting, and we will let you know the results.
Other types of membership
The CCR also has other membership categories of membership:
- Associate Members for individuals who do not belong to a group or organizations which could become a member
- Observers for organizations that support the CCR's general goals, but which cannot formally join
- Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) outside Canada
