What is a Refugee Protection Claimant Document (RPCD) and when will I get one?

The Refugee Protection Claimant Document (RPCD) confirms:

The RPCD doesn’t explain the conditions or length of your IFHP coverage. Your doctor should always confirm your coverage with our claims administrator.

We give you a Refugee Protection Claimant Document (RPCD) after we refer your refugee claim to the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB).

In some cases, we also give you an RPCD if you’re not eligible to make a refugee claim but you’re eligible to apply for a Pre-Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA).

You may also be able to use the RPCD to confirm your identity when applying for certain provincial benefits.
