Successful Outcome at the Refugee Protection Division!
Our office assisted a client from south Asia seeking refugee protection in Canada. The client initially arrived in Canada and claimed refugee protection several years ago. This case presented some difficulty, as the events forming the basis of the claim were not recent and the client had to demonstrate that there would be present risk were he to be returned to his country of nationality today. We extensively examined the client’s claim and collected ample information to show that the situation in the client’s country of nationality had not improved for individuals like our client and, if he were returned to that country, he would likely be at risk. As a result, the RPD determined that our client is a Convention Refugee. He will now be able to apply for permanent residence in Canada for both himself and his family.
