Who Can Make a Refugee Claim in Canada?



A refugee is different from an immigrant. Refugees do not choose but are forced to settle in another country permanently since they are not able to return home. They have fled their countries due to the fear of persecution.


In order to make a refugee claim, you must be in Canada and cannot be subject to a removal order.


If you could face dangers including torture, risk to your life or if there is a risk of cruel treatment or punishment if you go back to your home country, then you may be able to claim refugee in Canada.


However, keep in mind that your refugee claim may not be eligible to be referred to the IRB (Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada) if you:


  • made a previous refugee claim that was not found eligible

  • made a previous refugee claim that was rejected by the IRB

  • are recognized as a Convention refugee by another country that you can return to

  • are inadmissible to Canada

  • were granted protected person status in Canada

  • arrived via the Canada–United States border

  • have made a refugee claim in another country, as confirmed through information-sharing

  • abandoned or withdrew a previous refugee claim
