This kit aims to help people living with precarious status in Canada write and submit their application for permanent residence on humanitarian and compassionate grounds (otherwise known as an “H&C application”).

It is definitely helpful to consult a trustworthy immigration lawyer about an H&C. But that is not always possible for financial reasons. This kit can help you to put together your own application or to review the work of your lawyer to make sure it is of good quality.

a) Introduction (basic information about an H&C and where to go for more help);
b) Frequently Asked Questions;
c) Checklist (documents to gather in order to get started);
d) Guidelines for Letters of Support (tips for people writing letters to support your application);
e) H&C Template (examples of arguments that you can use in the main part of your H&C).
