Refugee Status From Inside Canada

Canada offers refugee protection to some people in Canada who fear persecution or who would be in danger if they had to leave. Some dangers they may face include

– Torture

– Risk to their life

– Risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment

The Canadian immigration authorities review every refugee claim and refer the eligible ones to IRB if eligible. The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) reviews the claims and decides their fate. If they approve your application, you become a protected person as a convention refugee or someone who needs protection


Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB)

Canada could offer protection to a person who has a genuine fear of persecution or cruel treatment in their home country. However, the fear must be because of:




Membership in a particular social group, or

Political opinion.

If you feel you could face one of these risks if you go back to your home country or the country where you normally live, you may be able to seek protection in Canada as a refugee.

Protected person in Canada or dependent(s) abroad:

In Canada, the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) and IRCC decide who is a Protected Person. If the IRB determined you to be a person in need of protection or a Convention refugee or if you received a positive decision on your Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA) from IRCC, you are a Protected Person and may apply for permanent residence in Canada.


Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA)

Most people who face a Removal Order could file for PRRA. The immigration authorities review those applications. If they approve the application, the applicant becomes a protected person.
