Those who are trying to get refugee status using a visitor's visa, have chosen quite a difficult type of immigration. In 1951, Canada signed the Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. In accordance with the convention, each year Canada receives from 20 000 to 30 000 refugees. Refugees are divided into those who provide financial assistance to the state and those who provide financial support to private sponsors. This assistance is usually granted for a period of 12 months to 36 months.

Canada accepts refugees 3 subcategories: Refugees under the Convention This category includes refugees, who live outside of their country. Under this category refugees have serious reason to believe that if they return to their homeland, they expect persecution for the following reasons:

  • racial harassment;
  • religious persecution;
  • political persecution;
  • national prosecution: prosecution of members of a particular social groups.

Refugees in this category are entitled to claim public assistance and may be privately sponsored. Refugees, asylum seekers This category includes refugees who live outside of their country. This category can claim those who are seriously injured in the result of:

  • the Civil War;
  • military conflicts;
  • pegregious human rights violations.

Refugees under this category should be sponsored privately or should have adequate facilities for the arrangement of their families in Canada.

Refugees applying for this status of the country of residence include those, who could become a refugee in accordance with the Convention, but is still living in his country. This category includes those, who are deprived of freedom and those who were slain.
