Please note;

We cannot consider your application for the Canada Global Stream unless you demonstrate your ability to meet the criteria. Candidates will receive a response based on the information provided.

Due to the considerable numbers inquiring for a very limited number of places, those who do not demonstrate their ability to meet the criteria will not be contacted.

Repeated emailing to lobby in support of an inquiry is strongly discouraged and will result in no response.

The Refugee Stream is not a quick solution for emergency situations, but a process that may take several months or upwards of one year and will require submission of several detailed forms, comprehensive references and support documentation.

The Refugee Stream is managed by the Canadian Government. Front Line Defenders will advise the Canadian Government on human rights defenders at risk. Front Line Defenders will not be involved in the resettlement process itself.
