Before considering to claim refugee status in Canada, it is essential to know if you are one and what exactly is a refugee:
A refugee is a person who is forced to leave their countries because they fear persecution, and once they leave are not able to return home.
The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) with other private groups or sponsors identifies people who are in real need; mostly, these people are living their lives in refugee camps overseas. These groups are the Sponsorship Agreement Holders, Groups of Five, Community Sponsors. Also, the Blended Visa Office-Referred (BVOR) Program matches refugees with one of these groups.
Others can claim refugee in Canada, and their claim can be made at the Port of Entry or inland Immigration office. An immigration officer will listen to your case and determine if you are eligible to claim refugee status. Later on, claims are carefully evaluated and verified for each person and a decision-making tribunal called Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada – IRB, which makes a determination on your case.
