The federal department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has two programs under which Canada accepts and supports persons seeking refuge to Canada:
- The Refugee and Humanitarian Resettlement Program works with people who are seeking protection from outside Canada
- The In-Canada Asylum Program is for people making refugee protection claims from within Canada
This page provides key facts and information that are most relevant to the Manitoban context. For in depth information on Canadian programs, consult the federal IRCC website at Refugees and Asylum.
