File a Refugee Claim

The hardship individuals who are coming from war-torn countries face, puts them in a position in a horrible position. Their country of origin, in a state of emergency, is obviously not making it priority to provide travel documents to help individuals leave. In some cases, the government is actively preventing individuals from leaving. Ultimately, for one reason or another, individuals are essentially stuck. Individuals who escape will not be allowed to cross other countries boarders easily at all, because they do not have valid travel documents, and could end up with nowhere to go. Fortunately, the United Nations has recognized the need for some individuals to seek protection in another country is a situation which arises sometimes, and it should be their right, as a human, to receive this protection.

If you are already in Canada, you can file an asylum claim at a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) inland office or an Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) inland office. CBSA or IRCC officials will then determine if an individual is eligible to land as a refugee.

Are you or someone you know living in fear of persecution or danger of death in their home country? Are you seeking somewhere safer to live and strive with your family? Canada offers those who are experiencing danger in their home countries a safe place to live and contribute to society. Canada’s refugee program is open to anyone of any background. The Immigration and refugee board of Canada (IRB) will review your application to determine if you are eligible to claim refugee status and whether you are a person in need of protection or a convention refugee.

What is your Eligibility

First of foremost, you must make sure that you are not under a removal order. You can receive removal orders by overstaying your stay in Canada whether you are in Canada under a TRP or a TRV. Once you are sure that a removal order is not issued against you, you can start the process of applying for refugee status. Once you have applied, the IRB will decide whether you are a convention refugee or a person in need of protection.
