According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, refugees are persons who are forced to seek international protection outside of their own country due to serious threat to their life, physical integrity, or freedom in their country of origin.
Canada offers refugee protection to people who are liable to face serious threat, prosecution, and dangers such as torture, risk to their life, risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment if they had to leave.
Application to this is made to the immigration and refugee board of Canada (IRB). Immigration and Refugee board is an independent body who makes decision on immigration and refugee matters and solely determined who a conventional refugee is or a person in need of protection.
Conventional Refugees are person outside of their home country or the country they normally live in who have a well-founded fear of persecution based on
· political opinion
· being part of a social group, such as women or people of a particular sexual orientation
A person in need of protection is person in Canada who cannot return to their home country due to well-founded fear they might be tortured, prosecuted, or face unusual punishment when returned to their country. Application for a refugee claim can be made at any port of entry or at Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada Office (IRCC).
