HUMANITARIAN AND COMPASSIONATE APPLICATION
For assistance, contact us.
An Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) application is used in special circumstances to ask the government for permission to stay in Canada based on H&C grounds. If you are in Canada with temporary status or you do not have valid immigration status, an H&C might be one of your only options for staying in the country.
The general rule under immigration law is that people apply for permanent residence from outside of Canada. With an H&C application, you are asking the government to make an exception to this rule and allow you to apply from within Canada.
