What Makes this type of Application Special

Submitting an application for permanent residence can already be a cumbersome process. Now, an application for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate (PR with H and C) consideration is even more complicated than any other type of permanent resident application. This is because you are applying for permanent residence without being eligible to apply through the regularly accepted routes, such as Express Entry, Family Class Sponsorship, and so on.

H&C Application Eligibility

It is important to note that H&C class is not intended as a parallel process to refugee determination. Refugee claimants may not submit an application for permanent residence for H&C considerations while under refugee claims are still in process. Designated foreign national may not apply for H&C for at least five years after the day of their designation or if there is a refugee claim or an appeal pending before a division of the IRB.
