Apply for permanent residence
With some exceptions, these categories of applicants usually are notified by the CBSA of their entitlement to apply for PRRA:
  • Individuals whose refugee claim has been rejected by the IRB (includes withdrawn or abandoned claims), and more than 12 months have passed.
  • Individuals whose refugee claim is ineligible for referral to the Immigration and Refugee Board (except those who are ineligible vis-à-vis the Safe Third Country Agreement)
  • Previous PRRA applicants who are still in Canada, and more than 12 months have passed.
  • Other individuals who never previously claimed refugee status or protection in Canada and are now facing removal.
Note: A person is not entitled, to apply for a PRRA if their claim for refugee protection was determined to be ineligible because they came to Canada directly or indirectly from a safe third country (To date, only the USA has been designated)
A CBSA officer decides your eligibility and notify you of your entitlement to apply for the Pre-Removal Risk Assessment PRRP.
If you are entitled to apply for the PRRA, the CSBA officer will give you the PRRA application form and the PRRA guide.
If you are a subject to a removal order that is in force and your previous PRRA application has been refused, abandoned, or withdrawn, you may apply for a subsequent PRRA if the 12-month bar on PRRA applications have passed.
  • Subsequent PRRA applicants do not benefit from a regulatory stay of removal.
  • Unless the officer is satisfied that it would be in the interests of justice to revisit an issue dealt with in a previous PRRA, Subsequent PRRA are assessed only in terms of risk factors that have arisen since the last PRRA application.
You must complete and submit your application in
  • 15 days, if you get the forms in person.
  • 22 days, if you get the form and the guide in the mail.
