If the IRB accepts your claim, you will get “protected person” status. This means you can stay in Canada and you can apply to become a permanent resident of Canada.

If the IRB rejects your claim, you have to leave Canada. If the law allows, you may ask for the decision to be reviewed.

You may also have other options.
