Are You eligible to file refugee claim in Canada?

In Canada, a person is eligible to make a refugee claim if they are a convention refugee or a person in need of protection.

A convention refugee is defined as a person who is outside their country of nationality and is unable or unwilling to return to that country due to a well-founded fear of persecution based on race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group.

A person in need of protection is defined as a person who would be at risk of torture, a cruel and unusual punishment, or death if they were returned to their country of origin. This includes individuals who are at risk of serious harm from non-state actors or from systemic discrimination.

Do refugee claimants have to stay in refugee camps in Canada?

Refugee claimants in Canada do not typically stay in refugee camps. Once a refugee claim is made, the claimant are allowed to live in the community while their claim is being processed. They may be eligible for government-funded financial assistance and housing support while they wait for their claim to be decided.

It's worth noting that some people who have been forced to flee their homes and are seeking asylum may have lived in refugee camps before arriving in Canada. However, once they arrive in Canada, they are no longer in a refugee camp.

If the refugee claimants are detained by the Canadian Border Service Agency (CBSA) for security, identity or other reasons, they may be held in a detention center until the CBSA completes its investigation. If a claimant' claim is rejected, the CBSA will make arrangements for their deportation.

Who is not eligible for refugee claim in Canada?

There are certain groups of individuals who may be ineligible to make a refugee claim in Canada. These include:

  1. People who have already been granted refugee status in another country and are able to return there.

  2. People who have committed a serious crime, such as a war crime, or are considered a danger to the security of Canada.

  3. People who have had a previous refugee claim rejected in Canada, unless there are significant new developments in their case.

  4. People who have come to Canada through a safe third country, such as the United States, and have had the opportunity to make a refugee claim there.

  5. People who have been determined inadmissible to Canada on grounds of security, human or international rights violations, or organized crime.

  6. People who have been denied refugee status in another country and are returning to Canada.

These are not the exhaustive list of ineligibility for refugee claim, please contact ND Paralegal Services for consultation and for detail information.
