What can I use to prove my status in Canada as a refugee or protected person?
If your claim for refugee protection is accepted by the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB), you will get a formal letter or document that you can use to prove your status.
If you are a protected person who was selected abroad and resettled as a refugee in Canada, you will get a document called a “Confirmation of Permanent Residence.” Later, you will be sent a Permanent Resident Card (also called a PR card).
If you are a protected person because you got a positive Pre-Removal Risk Assessment, you will get a document called a “Verification of Status.”
Each of these documents can be used to prove your status in Canada.
