H&C Factors to Consider in Assessment of Hardship

Posted in Humanitarian and Compassionate

Subsection A25(1) provides the flexibility to grant exemptions to overcome the requirement of obtaining a permanent residence visa from abroad, to overcome class eligibility requirements and/or inadmissibilities, on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.

If this is your situation, you may base your requests for H&C consideration on any number of factors including, but not limited to:

  • establishment in Canada;
  • ties to Canada;
  • the best interests of any children affected by their application;
  • factors in your country of origin this includes but is not limited to: Medical inadequacies, discrimination that does not amount to persecution and harassment
  • health considerations;
  • family violence considerations;
  • consequences of the separation of relatives;
  • inability to leave Canada has led to establishment; and/or
  • any other relevant factor they wish to have considered

The assessment of hardship in an H&C application is a means by which CIC decision makers determine whether there are sufficient H&C grounds to justify granting the requested exemption.
