Convention Refugees

Canada resettles refugees to save lives and to provide stability to those fleeing persecution with no hope of relief. Canada offers a safe haven to people with a well-founded fear of persecution, and people who are outside of their country and cannot return because of that fear of persecution. Its main purpose is to protect the rights and well-being of refugees.

 

Convention refugees are outside their home country or the country they normally live in. They’re not able to return because of a well-founded fear of persecution.
