Other evidence

Here are some examples of other kinds of evidence about an applicant's situation that might help support an H&C application:

  • photographs of the applicant spending time with family or at work or taking part in community activities
  • evidence about a woman's country of origin — for example, reports or expert evidence to show the lack of protection for women who are abused, the potential effect of the culture or customs on a woman's safety or well-being, or the lack of adequate medical care for a condition that has been diagnosed in the applicant or her child
  • job offer if an employer is waiting until the applicant can get a work permit
  • pay stubs and other evidence of income — for example, copies of the T4 form or Notice of Assessment from Canada Revenue Agency
