The Canadian Refugee System
Through its refugee protection system, Canada offers safe haven to persons with a well-founded fear of persecution, as well as those at risk of torture or cruel and unusual treatment or punishment. Canada’s refugee protection system consists of two main components:
The Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program, for people seeking protection from outside Canada; and Asylum in Canada, for persons making refugee protection claims from within Canada.
