Refugees and persons needing protection are people in or outside Canada who fear returning to their country of nationality or habitual residence. In keeping with its humanitarian tradition and international obligations, Canada provides protection to thousands of people every year.
Canada is a signatory to the United Nations multilateral treaty on Refugee Convention or the Geneva Convention of 28 July 1951. A Convention refugee is someone with a well-founded fear of persecution based on Race, Religion, Political opinion, Nationality or Membership in a particular social group/class such as, women or people of a particular sexual orientation.
Through its refugee protection system, Canada offers safe haven to persons with a well-founded fear of persecution, as well as those at risk of torture or cruel and unusual treatment or punishment. Canada’s refugee protection system consists of two main components:
The Refugees and Humanitarian Resettlement Program, for people seeking protection from outside Canada; and
Asylum in Canada, for persons making refugee protection claims from within Canada.
