Start Your Assessment

If an applicant feels that he or she would experience unusual and undeserved or disproportionate hardship if they were required to leave Canada, an applicant may qualify for Permanent Residence.

Under the Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds, a potential applicant must be residing in Canada at the time he or she lodges the application. The Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds is used in very specific cases and are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

These types of grounds are incredibly complicated to prove and require extensive immigration experience. In nearly all these matters an immigration professional is retained to ensure that the best interests of the applicant are being upheld. The margin for error is considerable and for this reason it is not recommended that one apply on behalf of themselves.

Who is a Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds Applications for?

An individual who is out of status in Canada and is currently living in the country may be able to receive permanent residency. The application for an individual who is out of status and is applying under Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds is assessed on particular factors. These factors include:

  • How settle the individual is in Canada,
  • His or her family ties to Canada,
  • Circumstances considering children the outcome if an application under Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds was declined

What to ask a Licensed Canadian Immigration Professional about the Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds Applications?

An application lodged under Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds can be a delicate matter, therefore, it is important to ask questions. Often we’ve noticed that Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds Applications are rejected because the right questions were not discussed.

  • Would I normally be able to become eligible to obtain permanent residency in Canada?
  • Can I apply under Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds if I have already made a submission for a refugee claim?
  • How do I know if the way that I entered the country was a irregular arrival and therefore does not qualify me to apply under Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds?
