Pre-Removal Risk Assessment


Canada is committed to ensuring that foreign nationals being deported from Canada are not sent to a country where they would be in danger or at risk of persecution. Canada does this by allowing foreign nationals in Canada, who are facing deportation, to apply for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA). If the PRRA application is accepted the foreign national will become a “protected person” and may be eligible to then apply for Canadian permanent residence.


Criteria for Applying

If you are facing deportation, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will call you into their offices for a pre-removal interview, at which you may be given a PRRA application, if you are eligible.

If you choose to apply for a PRRA, you must do so within 15 days of being given the PRRA application (your removal will be suspended once your PRRA application has been submitted).  You will then have another 15 days to make written submissions with supporting documents to a PRRA officer.
