More Information About the Process of Pre-Removal Risk Assessment
A PRRA is an application to remain in Canada on the basis that a person would be at risk of physical harm if they get deported to their country of nationality. There are some restrictions on eligibility, for example, people who have been found to be a danger to the Canadian public are not eligible for a PRRA. Also, unsuccessful refugee claimants are not eligible for a PRRA unless more than a year has elapsed from the rejection of their claim.
However, a PRRA represents an important opportunity to remain in Canada and assert a claim that they cannot return to their own country because the execution of their removal order would put them at risk of physical harm.
