If you are currently living in Canada and have no status, you may be eligible to submit a Humanitarian and Compassionate application. You will need to demonstrate that you are established in Canada and you would suffer hardship if you were forced to return to your home country. You will also need to demonstrate that your life in Canada is now the only life you know and you have fully integrated into Canadian society by, for example, being part of the community, working, volunteering and speaking the language.
A Humanitarian and Compassionate application does not stop your removal from Canada should Canada Border Services Agency choose to deport you, however having this application in the process may give you certain stay options if your application was submitted in a timely manner.
If you think you may be eligible to submit a Humanitarian and Compassionate application, please contact our office to schedule a consultation.
