Canadian Permanent Residency under Humanitarian Grounds

Considering unique circumstances?

Wondering if Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds could be your path to Canadian permanent residency? Let Small World Immigration assist you.

Humanitarian And Compassionate Grounds:

In extraordinary situations, Canada offers a pathway to permanent residency under the "humanitarian and compassionate" category. Applying for permanent residence through the Humanitarian And Compassionate category (H&C) signals to the Canadian government that you or your family members are facing danger or hardship. These unique circumstances, while diverse, generally require demonstrating that the challenges are insurmountable, causing severe emotional distress, and often significant harm if returning to or staying in your home country.

Who May Use This Application?

You can apply for permanent residence within Canada on humanitarian and compassionate grounds (H&C) if you:

Are a foreign national residing in Canada.

Are a foreign national residing in Canada.

Require an exemption from Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) or Regulations' requirements to apply for permanent residence within Canada. Believe that humanitarian and compassionate considerations justify the needed exemption(s).

Are ineligible to apply for permanent residence within Canada under specific classes.

Humanitarian And Compassionate Grounds Letter:

To be considered for this program, applicants must provide clear, concrete, and substantial evidence of circumstances warranting an exemption from the usual process. The evidence includes letters, photographs, official documents, and medical examination reports, among others. The immigration officer evaluates the veracity of claims and the need for special dispensation under this program.

If already in Canada, the immigration officer assesses the current situation and determines whether removal or deportation may pose danger or cause undue hardship. Factors such as self-sufficiency and potential impact on Canadian society are considered, with special attention to the health and safety of any involved children.

It’s important to note that only one H&C application is allowed at a time, and if there is a pending refugee claim, an H&C application will not be accepted. Small World Immigration is here to guide you through the intricate process of Humanitarian And Compassionate Grounds, ensuring your unique circumstances are effectively presented for the best possible outcome.
