BVOR Program

The BVOR Program is designed to resettle refugees identified by the UNHCR and submitted to Canadian visa offices abroad. It is only the families or individuals who have been living in limbo for many years, who are often at risk, and for whom resettlement is the only viable durable solution that are referred under this program.
