Stay of Removal Orders

Failed refugees who lost their appeals at Refugee Appeal Division (RAD) and against whom removal orders were issued, may stay the removal orders by applying for Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA) or by invoking Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) considerations on an application for permanent residency.

Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA) – is a program for virtually all failed refugees and/or applicants against whom removal orders were issued, and who believe that they still qualify for international protection because they experience:

  1. A well-founded fear of persecution, according to the Convention refugee definition (IRPA sec. 96);
  2. A risk of torture, risk to life or risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment, according to the Convention against Torture (IRPA sec. 97).

If you believe that you face fear or torture upon your return to your country of origin, then contact Arcadia to discuss your eligibility. If we find you eligible, it will be our pleasure to file a legal submission on your behalf.

Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) Considerations – is a recourse that may stay removal orders until a decision is granted on an applicant’s application for permanent residency. However, there is NO stay of removal where:

  • there is only an intention to apply for H&C; or
  • there is an outstanding H&C application that has not been approved in principle by the IRCC Minister.

Do not hesitate to contact us, so that we may file the H&C application on your behalf.

Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) – also known as “Minister’s permit” and may be granted in accordance with sec. 24 of the Immigration and Refuge Protection Act (IRPA) in exceptional circumstances to a person who does not meet the admissibility requirements (i.e. face removal orders) to remain temporarily in Canada. A TRP application is weighed against the need to enter or stay in Canada on the one hand and the health and safety risks to Canadian society on the other hand. The TRP is a discretionary permit, not an automatic legal instrument. The Individuals who are not admissible to Canada because they face a removal order may qualify for the permit, provided that they no longer pose any health or safety risks to Canadians and they have a compelling and sufficient reasons to overcome the presumption of inadmissibility. A person on the TRP status for 6 months may apply for a study or work permit. After 3 years on the uninterrupted TRP status the person may apply for permanent residency.

Call Arcadia today to obtain the TRP on your behalf.
