Seeking Refugee Protection in Canada
A refugee is a person who is outside their country of citizenship because they have well-founded grounds for fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, and is unable to obtain sanctuary from their home country or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail themselves of the protection of that country; or in the case of not having a nationality and being outside their country of former habitual residence as a result of such event, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to their country of former habitual residence. Such a person may be called an “asylum seeker” or “Refugee Claimant” until he/she are granted “Protected Person” status in Canada.
Canada offers refugee protection to asylum seekers who come to the port of entries or to the refugee claimants who are inside the Canada, who fear persecution or who would be in danger if they had to leave.
If you fear persecution, 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.
