A permanent resident application based on humanitarian and compassionate considerations is an exceptional pathway to Canadian permanent residency. Certain individuals, who do not normally meet the legal requirements to become permanent residents of Canada, may submit an application.
Here is another alternative for people declared ineligible to apply for family reunification or permanent residence in the economic categories. You can submit an H&C case
It is important to note that these requests are very complex as the process can be different on a case-by-case basis. Furthermore, there are a number of factors that may contribute to the rejection or approval of your application.
For example, the applicant will need to rely on his or her ties of attachment, family or friendly relationships, or any other factor requiring his or her presence in Canada.
To demonstrate the need for your presence in Canada, you may need to highlight your friends or family relations, including the best interests of the child that will be affected.
In order to justify validating your application, the competent authorities will carefully review the reasons and determine whether the humanitarian and compassionate considerations are real and established.
Like any immigration process, you have to meet certain conditions before you can make an application for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
Among these conditions, and without limitation, you must be on Canadian soil in order to apply. In some situations, this can be done from abroad through a permanent resident visa.
