Measures are being implemented by the Government of Canada for individuals impacted by the lifting of the temporary suspension of removals.
All affected individuals will likely be given an additional six months to remain in Canada, with access to work permits.
This can allow them enough time to either apply for permanent residence in Canada based on humanitarian and compassionate (H&C) grounds or return home. In support of this measure, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will defer their removal pending a final decision on their H&C application.
