Carlyn Moulton: Sponsor Group and Sponsorship Group

carlyn moulton: Sponsor Land follows the day to day lives of a Syrian refugee family brought to Canada in the fall of 2015 by PEC Syria, a private sponsor group in Prince Edward County, according to Rabble. It's a thoughtful, intimate take on the dynamic between newcomers to Canada and their sponsors who commit money, emotional and sweat equity to support resettlement and the family who while grateful, wonder what they have to sacrifice to fit in. They've gone from total strangers to instant family with a sponsorship group headed by Carlyn Moulton and her merry band of well-intentioned do-gooders.
