Refugee Rights in Ontario

This website is for front-line workers and advocates who work with refugee claimants and others who have questions about their immigration status in Canada.

The Refugee Claim Process flow chart shows the key stages of a claim from when it is made to final decision.

Your Refugee Hearing lets refugee claimants take an online tour of a hearing room in Toronto and find information to help them prepare for a hearing.
