The Government of Canada is committed to orderly migration, which includes providing protection to genuine refugees based on a well-founded fear of persecution. But we want you to know that there are private individuals and organizations in your community who may be providing false or misleading information on claiming asylum in Canada.

The Government of Canada has no special program to grant refugee status to individuals in the United States currently under Temporary Protected Status or otherwise.

Claiming asylum is not a free ticket into Canada.

Temporary Protected Status in the United States does not entitle people to the same status in Canada. Any claims that the Temporary Protected Status from the United States would apply in Canada are false.

If you cross the U.S. border into Canada outside of a port of entry, you are breaking the law and you could be putting yourself at risk.

You will be arrested by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police or a local law enforcement officer and brought to an immigration officer at a port of entry. A thorough initial screening, including medical and criminality checks and security screening, will be completed.

Not everyone is eligible to make an asylum claim and not all asylum claims will be accepted. All eligible claims are assessed by the independent Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada. Each claim is decided on a case-by-case basis.

There are specific requirements to be considered a refugee and if you do not meet them, you will be asked to leave or be removed.

Avoid being misinformed.

Don’t be the victim of misinformation.
