Are sponsored refugees allowed to move within Canada?

As Permanent Residents (PRs), sponsored refugees have mobility rights within Canada. Sometimes sponsored refugees decide to move to a more affordable area, or to be closer to friends or family that have arrived. This can create some challenges if sponsored refugees want to live in a part of Canada that is far from where the sponsors live; they will not be able to provide as much in-person support. Sponsorship groups will need to assess if they are able to continue to support the sponsored family. Ultimately, the sponsor group is responsible for supporting the refugee(s) no matter where they decide to live in Canada.
