Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program

Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program

Canada is a signatory to the 1951 Geneva Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and its 1967 Protocol, which means that the country is committed to protecting refugees who have a well-founded fear of persecution in their home country.

If you are a refugee seeking protection in Canada, we can assist you with both the Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program administered outside Canada and the In-Canada Refugee Protection Process. We understand that the refugee protection process can be overwhelming, and we are here to help you every step of the way.

A convention refugee is a person who is outside their home country and is unable or unwilling to avail themselves of the protection of that country due to a well-founded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group, or political opinion. A person in need of protection is someone who is already in Canada and would face the possibility of torture, risk of life, or risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment if they were removed to their home country.

Canada grants permanent residence to approximately 30,000 refugees each year through the refugee protection process. The majority of approved refugees are granted asylum status inside Canada and make their claim at a Canadian port of entry or at an inland Canada Immigration Centre office.

Our consultancy can assist you in preparing and submitting your refugee protection claim to the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB), where an independent tribunal comprised of Refugee Protection Division members will determine whether you are a convention refugee or a person in need of protection. We will guide you through the hearing process and provide you with legal counsel to ensure that your rights are protected.

If your claim is approved, you may apply for permanent residence from within Canada. The process generally takes about 18 months to complete. Prior to the hearing, we can assist you in obtaining employment authorization or student authorization, depending on your individual circumstances.

It is important to note that certain categories of individuals are not eligible to have their claim referred to the IRB. However, GoldOX World can help you determine whether you are eligible to make a refugee protection claim and provide you with the support you need throughout the process. We are proud to have an experienced lawyer on our team who specialize in refugee law.
