Canada compassionate travel

What happens if I am denied refugee status in Canada?


The first words that Pope Francis pronounced during the meeting with a delegation of indigenous people in Quebec, put us in the deep meaning of this trip: to walk together in truth, justice and hope. There he stated:

“There is a cultural fashion that standardizes, that makes everything the same, that does not tolerate differences and focuses only on the present moment, on the needs and rights of individuals, often neglecting the duties towards the weakest and most fragile; the poor, the migrants, the elderly, the sick, the unborn… It is they who are forgotten by welfare societies; it is they who, in the general indifference, are discarded like dry leaves to be burned.”

To the young Inuit population, the pope offered, as an elder brother, three pieces of advice. The first: “walk upwards. That is, orient yourself toward your truest [most humanizing] desires. He exhorted them: “You are made to take flight, to embrace the courage of truth and promote the beauty of justice, to raise your moral mettle, to be compassionate, to serve others, to sow peace and care where you are…”.

Dear friends, we are here with the desire to walk together on a path of healing and reconciliation that, with the help of the Creator, will help us to shed light on what has happened and to overcome the dark past. With regard to overcoming the darkness, even now, as in our meeting at the end of March, you have lit the qulliq. This, besides giving light during the long winter nights, allowed, by diffusing heat, to resist the rigor of the climate. Therefore, it was essential to live. Even today it remains a beautiful symbol of life, of a luminous life that does not surrender to the darkness of the night. So are you, a perennial testimony of life that does not go out, of a light that shines and that no one manages to suffocate.

Friends, walk towards the high, go every day towards the light, make a team. And do all this in your culture, in the beautiful Inuktitut language. I wish you, listening to the elders and drawing on the richness of your traditions and your freedom, to embrace the Gospel guarded and handed down by your ancestors, and to find the Inuk face of Jesus Christ. I bless you from my heart and I say to you: qujannamiik! [thank you!]

Before entering Canada, travelers must apply for entry clearance, a waiver of border restrictions and a limited waiver of mandatory quarantine on humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

Depending on the situation, you may not need all of the elements, but in general, a letter of support completed and signed by a licensed health care professional certifying the need for your presence.

The letter of support or other documentation confirms your eligibility for a limited exemption from quarantine. You may also need permission from places you will be visiting, hospitals or other facilities where you may come into contact with people who may have diseases.
