  • The second one is the In-Canada Asylum Program. This package protects individuals who are now in Canada when they make their refugee protection appeal.

Admissibility Standards

In demand to meet the requirements for permanent residence in Canada as a refugee, the claimants have to come across specific settings:

  • They have to be recommended by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) or a private guarantor association.
  • They have to meet the requirements as a Convention Refugee Abroad Class or Country of Asylum Class. They meet the requirements if:
    • They are frightened to be accused due to their race, religious belief, ethnic group, political standup, or their affiliation in a particular social group (Convention Refugee Abroad Class)
    • They are exaggerated personally and extremely from a public or armed war or have had their violation of human rights (Nation of Asylum Class)
    • They are not present at the time of application in Canada

    • They do not have a nationality nation and cannot go back to the country they formerly resided in/are scared to do so.
  • They do not have a robust alternative solution. Strong solutions are:
    • Voluntary deportation. If the refugee cannot voluntarily deport, it indicates the situation in their country has not changed in a way that allows the refugee to return there securely.
    • Local incorporation. If provincial incorporation is not conceivable, it signifies the refugee cannot become locally united into the country they sleeked asylum in.

  • A form on whether the refugee used a representative to complete the application procedures.

If the refugee is recommended by the UNHCR or another recommendation organization, the IRCC abroad allows the refugee to know how to apply to their office. Once the IRCC accepts the appeal, they email the refugee sending a letter of confirmation along with an allocated file identification number. If the request is acknowledged, the IRCC chooses which city/region they will be relocated to.
