New Online Refugee Claims Portal

Published: Sep 13, 2022

Effective September 13, 2022, people who want to make refugee claims from within Canada must use a new online service. This new online service replaces the Canadian Refugee Protection Portal. The Canadian Refugee Protection Portal was greatly amended a few months ago. The Canadian Refugee Protection Portal replaced a system put in place after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, by which inland refugee claimants filed their refugee claim through Canada Post's ePost Connect. Therefore, since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic we have effectively now had three different ways to file an inland refugee claim.
