Humanitarian and Compassionate Program

Are you in Canada illegally and have exhausted many legal recourses? Face an imminent deportation or already left the country while leaving your family behind in Canada? If so, then let us file on your behalf an application on the humanitarian and compassionate (H&C) grounds.

The H&C application is for the people who are in exceptional situations for whom usual legal approaches are unfair and require a different and discretionary treatment to exempt the applicants from virtually all requirements of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA). It may be filed from within Canada or outside Canada, depending on your situation. If any of the following factors apply to you, than, you may qualify for the permanent residency under the H&C program:

  • establishment in Canada for in-Canada applications;
  • ties to Canada;
  • the best interests of any children directly affected by the H&C decision;
  • factors in their country of origin including adverse country conditions;
  • health considerations including inability of a country to provide medical treatment;
  • family violence considerations;
  • consequences of the separation of relatives;
  • inability to leave Canada has led to establishment (in the case of applicants in Canada);
  • ability to establish in Canada for overseas applications;
  • any unique or exceptional circumstances that might merit relief.
Arcadia will help you compile the necessary documents, prepare legal opinion letters and represent your case firmly, persuasively and within the limits of the law, until you are in Canada legally.
