Temporary public policy for the resettlement of additional Afghan nationals with a significant and/or enduring relationship to Canada
The Temporary Public Policy for the Resettlement of Additional Afghan Nationals with a Significant and/or Enduring Relationship to Canada recognizes the high vulnerability and elevated risk faced by individuals associated with the Government of Canada, as well as their family members, as specified below. This new temporary public policy will facilitate the immigration of individuals with a significant and/or enduring relationship with the Government of Canada and their family members and de facto dependents to Canada as members of the Convention Refugee Abroad Class of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (“the Regulations”).
I hereby establish that, in light of the foregoing, there are sufficient public policy considerations to justify granting exemptions, pursuant to section 25.2 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (“the Act”), to the requirements of the provisions of the Act and Regulations listed below for Afghan nationals who are or were associated with the Government of Canada, and their family members, and de facto dependents, who apply for a permanent resident visa as members of the Convention Refugee Abroad Class and meet the conditions set out below, as well as all admissibility requirements as set out in the Act.
