Asylum and protection claimants represent a significant portion of immigration to Canada. While Canada is a welcoming place, the asylum system can be complex. Thanks to our expertise, we will accompany you through the process and help you demystify what may seem complex to many. In Canada, everyone has the right to be protected from persecution and torture. As a signatory to the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees (Geneva Convention), Canada has the responsibility to protect the rights and fundamental freedoms of any individual who requests it. These rights are also protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
In order to be protected in Canada as a refugee, a person must be outside his or her country of residence and have a well-founded fear of persecution. According to the Geneva Convention, the fear of persecution must be based on race, nationality, religious belief, political opinion or membership in a particular social group. In addition to refugee status, Canada may also grant you protected person status. In fact, Canada has an obligation to protect refugees, which means not exposing them to persecution. However, it is up to the claimant to prove that his or her fear of persecution is well-founded, and this is not easy, because you have to know the laws and how the system works to hope to get out of it. That is why you need BalCanis to help you by guiding you through the process of filling out the forms and providing the required documentary evidence. We can also represent you before the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB).
