Humanitarian & Compassionate Applications

Author: Mock Webware

Foreign Nationals who are presently living in Canada but do not qualify to apply for Permanent Residence under any of the categories, but have compelling reasons that they should be allowed to live in Canada may make an application for Permanent Residence on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.

Foreign Nationals living outside of Canada who do not meet few criteria of an immigration program may request an exemption from those criteria. It is a flexible option using which an application could be made, but immigration officers must be satisfied that humanitarian and compassionate considerations exist before they approve an application.
