The proponents of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, as well as the Canadian government, understand the refugee system is, above all, about saving lives and providing protection to the homeless.
To meet its international legal duties concerning refugees, Canada provides a secure paradise to individuals, with a well-founded fear of persecution due to race, faith, nationality, political opinion or membership, in a specific social group (including abused girls or homosexuals and lesbians, to name a few) as good as those vulnerable to torture or cruel and unusual treatment or abuse.
Individuals, who fear persecution in their own homeland (or the place of their habitual residence), who wish to seek asylum in Canada, should first be displaced from their place of residence and should be incapable of, or, because of well-founded fear, reluctant to, avail the defence of the nation (or return there).
A permit for refugee protection might be produced at the ports of entry or at national workplaces, at any given time, through the executive or admissibility hearing procedure in Canada, until a removal order is produced.
Should a member of the judiciary (for those seeking refugee protection in Canada) or an Immigration Official (for those seeking safety outside Canada under the Convention Refugees and associates of the Humanitarian-Protected Persons Abroad programs) reject an application for safety, the plaintiff may be informed, in writing, the reasons for rejection.
