  1. The Private Sponsorship of Refugees (PSR) program was established on the principle of additionality;
  2. In November 2006, the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration increased the upper limit of the PSR target to 4,500 persons in order to allow for flexibility for sponsors to respond to visa office referred cases without decreasing the number of sponsor referred cases processed;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR call for visa office referred cases to be processed in addition to the established targets of both GARs and PSRs at all visa posts.
