Refugee, Humanitarian & Compassionate Permits

Canada’s Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement program offers protection and assistance for referrals from the United Nations Refugee Agency and those applying for private sponsorship.

Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) grounds may be granted to an applicant. Many factors will be considered, such as:

  • if the applicant(s) have family ties and children,
  • if the applicant(s) have already settled in Canada and if they
  • will the applicant experience hardship if forced to leave Canada and return to their home country.

As part of our advice process, we will discuss the most appropriate options for your case with you.
