Refugees to Canada

The term refugee can mean a forcibly displaced person who has fled their country of origin. It can also mean a person who was, on top of that, granted refugee status in the country the person fled to. Refugees and others seeking protection in Canada are seeking security and protection from threats to their own lives. Refugee claimants all go through a front-end security screening. Through this process, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) checks all refugee claimants on arrival in Canada. Since the screening was put in place in 2001, the number of claimants found to represent any kind of security concern has been statistically insignificant. It is more difficult to enter Canada as a refugee than as a visitor, because the refugee determination process involves security checks by CSIS and the RCMP, fingerprinting and interviews.
