The Canadian refugee system is organized into two programs:
– The Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program, which is for people who need protection and are located outside of Canada (often in resettlement, or refugee camps). The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), human rights groups, and private community sponsors may appoint individuals for this program
– the In-Canada Asylum Program for those who have crossed the border and are claiming refugee status in Canada
In Canada, refugee claimants enjoy certain rights and can have access to government services while their case for refugee protection is being considered by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects all people in Canada regardless of their. Refugee status claimants may also apply for a work or study permit. The children of refugee status claimants are eligible to attend public schools.
We here at Green Light Immigration Consultants Canada understand the hardships that people claiming refugee status have experienced, as well as their challenges in communication and obtaining evidence supporting their claims. Our years of expertise have shown a high success rate in approving refugees.
