Applying For Refugee Status
Applying for refugee status within Canada allows individuals who face a legitimate fear of being persecuted in their home country a chance to become a Canadian resident. This is different than applying for residency under compassionate and humanitarian grounds, which provides for individuals facing undue hardship, such as domestic violence.
The immigration lawyers of ROCHON | GENOVA LLP offer legal advice and guidance to individuals currently within Canada seeking refugee status, as well as those from foreign countries. Based in Toronto, Ontario, we aim to help those fleeing their home country due to their race, religion, nationality, societal group (LGBT) or politics.
Barriers to Refugee Status
Canada provides refugee status to those who have valid reasons to fear to return to their homes. There are very specific criteria that must be met in order to qualify.
At ROCHON | GENOVA LLP, our lawyers leverage our over 25 years of legal experience working with immigration laws to provide you with personalized strategies to help you meet these criteria and support your application to stay within Canadian borders.
Creating A Strong Application For Your Case

This is why our lawyers do not take view these applications as routine documents to be filled out. We make sure we understand the full scope of your situation so we can provide specific, customized support aimed at building a strong, solid application for your case.
