Immigration based on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.
The Humanitarian and Compassionate certificate is for candidates who are in Canada and would experience excessive difficulty if they were extradited to their home country concerning social, economic or personal reasons. Individuals who would not be usually likely to achieve perpetual residency in Canada, they can use humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
Refugees are individuals who are obliged to leave their home country due to a concern of abuse and are not able to return home. Canada’s refugee system allows refugees with other rights to register for their permanent residency under humanitarian and compassionate grounds. These requests can be classified into two categories:

- Claiming refugee protection from inside Canada
- A definite concern of getting persecuted
- A prospect of torture/unusual suffering in their respective home nations.
Following individuals are not qualified for asylum claims—
