What else should I know about applying for asylum in Canada?

Kanada gen yon repitasyon poutèt li te ouvè epi ak compassionate pou imigran ki tap. Lidè yo li te di yo akeyi refijye yo. Kanada sanble pou l ofri anpil opòtinite pou newcomers. Tout sa vre pou kèk imigran, Men an reyalite pou lòt moun kapab diferan:

Canada has a reputation for being open and compassionate to migrants. Its leaders have said they welcome refugees. Canada seems to offer great opportunities to newcomers. All of this is true for some migrants, but the reality for others may be different:

  • Anpil moun pral pa gen dwa pou yo rete
    Anpil imigran pa kalifye pou azil politik. Si ou pa kalifye, ou pwal pwobableman pou déportés tounen pou peyi w orijin, pa egzanp Ayiti oubyen Salvadò. Sa ki se pwopwiyete ke nou pwal gen dwa tounen nan Etazini.
  • Pa gen lontan datant pou yon desizyon
    Menm si ou yo gen dwa pou ou fè reklamasyon azil politik, nou pwal tann yon bon bout tan anvan ou ka tande. Sistèm Kanadyen imigrasyon ki gen yon ensifizan pou kòmand 40,000 ka yo. Li ta ka de ane anvan ou pran yon desizyon. Pandan tout tan ou ret tann, Sepandan, n' a jwenn pèmisyon pou yo travay ak benefis.
  • Many people will not be allowed to stay
    Many migrants do not qualify for asylum. If you don’t qualify, you will probably be deported back to your country of origin, for example Haiti or El Salvador. It is unlikely that you will be allowed back to the United States.
  • There is a long wait for a decision
    Even if you are allowed to claim asylum, you will wait a long time before your case is heard. Canadian immigration system has a backlog of 40,000 cases. It could be two years before you get a decision. While you wait, however, you will get benefits and permission to work.

Moun ki fè sa ki kalifye pou azil politik nan Kanada?

Who does qualify for asylum in Canada?

Gouvènman Kanadyen an a kondisyon espesifik pou yon moun pou yo konsidere kòm yon refijye. Si yo pa ranpli yo, yo pral mande w pou lage oubyen pou te retire. Gouvènman an ki pa pwogram espesyal pou titulaires TPS yo ki t' ap soti nan peyi Etazini.

The Canadian government has specific requirements for a person to be considered a refugee. If you do not meet them, you will be asked to leave or be removed. The government has no special programs for TPS holders coming from the US.
