Pre-removal Risk Assessment (PRRA)
Foreign nationals facing removal from Canada may apply for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment.
This assessment can assist individuals with an opportunity to seek protection if they are at risk of danger or fear persecution if they are sent back to their own country. The assessment eligibility is determined by an immigration officer and if approved you may be able to stay in Canada.
If you made a refugee claim or applied for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment and the application was rejected you are required to wait 12 months before you can reapply. If you come from a designated country you will need to wait 26 months to reapply.
The IRCC provides the following restrictions for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment:
- You entered Canada from a safe third-party country
- You are Convention refugee in another country, to which you may return
- You already have refugee protection in Canada
- You are subject to extradition
Our legal team can provide you with the guidance needed throughout this complex process should you require protection and need to apply for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment. You will need to submit evidence to justify you may be at risk upon returning to your country. If you are eligible, you will have 15 days to apply.
At Preszler Law, we can provide you with assistance in handling and processing the documentation needed for your application if your claim has been denied and you have been ordered to leave Canada.
