Clarification of Submission Requirements for Post-secondary Sponsorship Applicants

Due to a high number of incomplete applications for sponsorships received for past academic years, please note the following documents/information must be submitted along with your application form and other submission requirements as specified in the Post-secondary Sponsorship Program Guidebook or on the application forms.

Additional Documents required for submission with post-secondary sponsorship application form:

  1. A photocopy of your Status Card with the expiry date
  2. A photocopy of your Manitoba Health Card
  3. A brief family history (immediate family as far as you know: name grandparents, parents, siblings, where you were born, etc. Note if you are a Bill C-31
  4. A brief résumé showing your education and work history. (Education history should list educational institutions, programs and key dates, degrees/diplomas with years obtained, etc. e.g. 2004 – Graduated Grade 12, Vincent Massey Collegiate, Winnipeg, MB.; 2005 – Entered 3-year Social Work diploma program, Brandon University, Sponsored by NCN; 2008 – Graduated Social Work diploma.)
  5. Because of difficulties contacting some applicants, your application package (Form B, P. 1) must contain an active email address as well as a cell phone number (if available). If you do not have an email address, you can create one at no cost at a number of websites including gmail.com, hotmail.com and others.

PDF versions of the Sponsorship Guidebook and a revised Application Form containing this new information are available for download by clicking the links above in the right-hand column.
