After you apply: get next steps – Refugee status from inside Canada

After your Immigration and Refugee Board Hearing:

If your claim is accepted

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

If your claim is rejected

If your claim is rejected, you have to leave Canada. You may, where the law permits, request that the decision be reviewed.

In addition, other options may be available to you.
