What is an H&C Application?

An H&C application is used in special circumstances

to ask the government for permission to stay in Canada

based on Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C)



The general rule under immigration law is that people

apply for permanent residence from outside of Canada.


With an H&C application, you are asking the government

to make an exception to this rule and allow you to apply

from within Canada. 


If you are in Canada with temporary status or you do not

have valid immigration status, an H&C might be one of

your only options for staying in the country.

If you think this is something you need to look in to, please

ensure you have the right representation.
