This section contains details on policy, procedures and guidance that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) staff typically use. The authorities have posted this on the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website as a courtesy to stakeholders.
Foreign nationals, who are inadmissible, have the ability to submit Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) applications for overcoming their inadmissibility. However, they would not be able to do this in some circumstances – refer to Appendix A. The Minister or the Minister’s delegated authority can consider granting an exemption from the inadmissibility. But, they can only do this if they are of the opinion that the specific Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) considerations applicable in the case justify this exemption.
