Making a humanitarian and compassionate (H&C) application
How can front-line workers help?
As a front-line worker you may be able to help a woman who wants to stay permanently in Canada and is thinking of making an H&C application by:
- letting her know when and where to get legal advice
- explaining what IRCC will consider when they decide an H&C application
- helping her gather evidence she needs to show that she should be allowed to stay in Canada for humanitarian and compassionate reasons
A woman who speaks French has the right to communicate in French with immigration authorities. If she is making an application to Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada she has the right to apply in French. To find out more about her French language rights, she should contact a lawyer or a community legal clinic.
