Article A25 and A25.1 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) provides for flexibility to provide for permanent residence status or permanent resident visa to individuals of certain nationals who would otherwise not qualify for any class in cases where there are compelling grounds for humanitarian and compassionate considerations.
Applicants may make application on any ground affecting their personal circumstance that may be sufficiently compelling to allow for humanitarian and compassionate consideration. And demonstrate a well-founded fear of harm, danger or hardship if returned to their country of origin.
You are eligible to apply for humanitarian and compassionate consideration if you:
· Are a foreign national currently living in Canada.
· Need an exemption from one or more requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) or Regulations to apply for permanent residence within Canada.
· Believe humanitarian and compassionate considerations justify granting the exemption(s) you need.
Applications under Humanitarian and Compassionate considerations are assessed based on individual circumstances and the information’s provided.
