The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada which is the government organ that deals with all immigration affairs in Canada, has introduced a temporary public policy regarding certain foreign nationals affected by the Trump’s executive order.
This public policy allows all foreign nationals affected by the Donald Trump’s executive order on January the 27th to ban all refugees and green card holders from 7 Muslim countries, to apply for temporary status in Canada.
IRCC also admitted this temporary Public Policy will be applied to those from the seven Muslim countries (Libya, Syria, Iran, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, and Yemen), transiting through Canada and banned from entering the U.S. He assured all people who may be stranded in Canada will use his authority as minister to provide the necessary residency they might need.
This policy sets out some necessary measures in order to allow all eligible foreign nationals in Canada to be able to apply for extension of their temporary status. The nationals, affected by the ban, can also work and maintain themselves if they don’t have any other financial support as long as they continue staying in Canada. Fees for these applicants have been waived.
All individuals when applying, are required to meet all Canada’s admissibility criteria and also, to be able to provide an explanation of how they are affected. This temporary public policy will be active until April 30, 2017.
