Humanitarian & Compassionate Ground Applications

People who would not normally be eligible to become permanent residents of Canada may be able to apply on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Humanitarian and compassionate grounds apply to people with exceptional cases. We assess these applications on a case-by-case basis.

The H & C is not an alternative to residency but it allows people to stay in the country under special circumstances.

Group Sponsorship

Canada allows 5 Canadian citizens or permanent residents to come together to sponsor a refugee living abroad. To be eligible to sponsor a refugee, the principal applicant must be recognized as a refugee by:

  • United nations refugee agency (UNHCR) or
  • the government of the country (foreign state) where the refugee lives
The principal applicant MUST already have refugee status. Having refugee status means that an authorized body (the UNHCR or foreign state) has found the person meets its refugee definition.
