Refugees and Protected Persons

Under the international human right law, Canada recognizes the principle of non-refoulement and accepts refugee claims. The Refugee Protection will determine if the person concerned is a Convention refugee or a person in need of protection. The claim can be made at a Port of Entry, at a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) or Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) Inland Offices. The CBSA and the IRCC will determine through multiple screenings to see if the person concerned is eligible to make a refugee claim. Refugee claimants go through a series of screenings and hearings to establish the basis and authenticity of their claim as a refugee.
These processes can be lengthy therefore the Government of Canada may allow the person to work or study in Canada while awaiting the result of their claim. If and when the claim is proven and the refugee claimant is offered a new life in Canada, they become eligible to apply for permanent residence. In Canada, the refugee claimants are offered healthcare and settlement services through various programs. The refugee determination system can be both inside and outside Canada. Contact us for more information as there are multiple ways to claim refugee status. At Globus, we work tirelessly with our clients to ensure their application is supported with the relevant information and documentation as it is essential to your case’s outcome.

Your claim might not be eligible to be referred to the Immigration Refugee Board if:

  • You have claimed Refugee or Protected Person status in another country and you can safely return to that country but you chose not to.
