Which documents prove I’m eligible for the Interim Federal Health Program?
Any of these documents will prove your eligibility for the Interim Federal Health Program (IFHP):
- An Acknowledgement of Claim and Notice to Return for Interview Letter—you get this letter after you make a refugee claim and you’re scheduled for an interview.
- A Refugee Protection Claimant Document—you get this document after your interview and we either
- refer your refugee claim to the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB), or
- decide your claim isn’t eligible to be referred to the IRB but you are eligible to apply for a pre-removal risk assessment
- An Interim Federal Health Certificate—you get this certificate if you’re a resettled refugee going to live in Canada or a member of another eligible beneficiary group.
An officer from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada or the Canada Border Services Agency will give you your IFHP eligibility document.
