When a person is found to be a victim of unlawful discrimination or cruel and unusual treatment, they are entitled to file an asylum claim in Canada under the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The convention states that a child in Canada has a right to be free from imprisonment, torture and other cruel and inhumane treatment or punishment.
In Canada, an asylum claim is not an automatic decision. However, it is possible to make a successful asylum claim.
The first step is to seek legal advice as to whether a case should be made. There are many Canadian lawyers who specialise in immigration law. If a case is not filed as a claim under the existing immigration legislation, then it is advisable to obtain legal advice.
The second step in the claims process is to submit evidence of the abuse or injury that was suffered. This evidence could consist of medical reports from a doctor or surgeon or from an ambulance service. The documentation required will depend upon the nature of the claim. It may include copies of photographs, witness statements and police certificates.
After gathering all the evidence that is necessary for the claims process, the claimant will have to file the application with the appropriate Canadian immigration authorities. The claim can be filed directly with them or it may be filed through the Canadian Department of Immigration and Citizenship. In either case, an application is submitted to the Canadian Immigration Authority (CIC).
The claim will be reviewed by a panel of professionals. A decision on the application is made within four weeks. The review panel can accept the claims or reject them.
They may also order an investigation if the claim is too strong. If an inquiry into the claim is ordered, the claimant will have to provide written evidence to back up their claim. Evidence may include medical reports, police certificates, witness statements and photographs.
The claimant may have to wait for more than one year before they receive a decision. They may be able to appeal the decision.
The claims process is very different in the United States and other countries. As a rule, applicants in the United States are entitled to an immigrant hearing within ninety days of submission of the application.
At this hearing the court hears the applicant’s eligibility to seek protection from removal. The court also hears any other relevant evidence that supports the applicant’s eligibility to apply for immigration. protection. The hearing is then closed and evidence and an applicant is entitled to a hearing date.

In some cases, the applicant may have the right to a preliminary hearing before the Minister of Justice. of the Province where the applicant is from.
During the court hearing the applicant has the opportunity to cross examine witnesses, make submissions and present other evidence. They may ask questions to the Minister of Justice. The hearings can take a long time and are quite stressful.
The applicant’s claim can be refused or accepted if they are found eligible for protection. If an offer is received by the applicant during the court hearing, they may request an additional hearing and this may result in more time taken to finalize the outcome.
In some cases, if an offer is not received by the applicant during the court hearing, they may be offered a stay of removal. This is usually only offered if the case is considered important. It is not uncommon for applicants to request a stay of removal if they are not granted refugee status in Canada.
If the application is denied, they may be ordered removed to their country of origin or even another country. At this point the applicant may file an appeal. If they are found eligible for permanent residence in Canada, they will have to go through a process of adjustment to become a permanent resident.
Many Canadian immigration law states that a person cannot be refused immigration if they are the subject of a valid claim for asylum under Canadian immigration law. This applies to both permanent and temporary residence. If the applicant is in the process of applying for citizenship or settling, they must also ensure they can legally remain in the country they are leaving.
