Refugee status determination

How refugees are screened before coming to Canada

Coming to Canada as a refugee is far from being an easy process. The procedure is long and tedious. Refugees go through various steps which consist of several layers of approval and screening; with the displaced person’s file being reviewed by Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), Interpol, Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) and similar databases in allied countries.
