H&C Applications in Canada

Posted in Humanitarian and Compassionate

H & C stands for Humanitarian and Compassionate Applications for Permanent Residency of Canada. This type of applications are for those people who have no legal status in Canada yet they do not want to leave Canada and want to stay here.

To apply for H&C application, you have to establish that you will suffer a life of extreme hardship if sent to your home country.

How Can a Person Qualify for Humanitarian & Compassionate Application?

H and C applications are for people without legal status and with no other options available to them. Some important factors for having a successful application under H & C grounds are:

  1. If you have family ties to Canada
  2. If you are employed in Canada although you are without a work permit.
  3. If you are studying in Canada without a valid study permit
  4. If you are doing any kind of volunteering
  5. If you are upgraded your language skills
  6. If you are invested in Canada in the form of property and savings.
  7. If you have social ties with Canada within your community.

Who has the best chance of a successful H and C Application?

The best chance under H and C applications is for people that have lived in Canada first legally then they have become illegal due to the expiratory nature of their visa. During these years they have established themselves in Canada and they do not intend to go back due to problems faced in their home countries.

Is Hardship Suffered in Home Country a Valid Point for H and C applications?

Yes, it is. Major numbers of applications are assessed on the basis of problems faced by a person if he or she is to return to his or her native country. It is important to note that economic and/or social hardship suffering at native country make the case strong for Humanitarian and Compassionate applications but these are not essential for H and C applications.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
