Resettlement Assistance Program (RAP) Rates

In January 2018, IRCC adopted prevailing provincial RAP rates as the guideline for private sponsors to calculate settlement support funding. Prior to 2018, sponsors were expected to refer to prevailing provincial social assistance rates. This change was intended to align private sponsorship of refugees (PSR) minimum settlement funding with the allowances received by Government assisted refugees (GARs)See RSTP website for current rates and the Minimum Financial Support Calculator.
