Canada is a multicultural and diverse country. It upholds its Charter of Rights and Freedoms which affords its citizens and permanent residents the freedom from discrimination of any kind.
Unfortunately, few countries do not grant the same fundamental rights and freedom to its citizens and residents. Canada welcomes refugees to come and live in Canada provided they qualify as per its legal rules and regulations.
A claimant for refugee status can apply, irrespective of the fact whether they are residing in Canada or abroad. The refugee claim application has a specific laid down process including a basis of the claim form and a refugee hearing.
