Through developing Canadian Refugee Programs and working with the UNHCR, and Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada, this country has a long history of welcoming people from around the world into its fold and offering protection. At Migrating Bird Immigration Services Inc., we are proud to live in a country that has offered so many Convention refugees asylum and a chance at a new life, free from intolerance, discrimination, persecution, punishment, imprisonment, and the ravages of war, famine, and other environmental and economic hardships. Go Canada!

Refugee ProgramsAt MBIS, it is our fervent goal to provide a stream by which the persecuted, oppressed, and overwhelmed by other forces that endanger their well-being may find a safe haven. Building cases to prove someone’s human rights that have been oppressed is our expertise.

Canadian Refugee Programs accommodate foreign nationals whose life circumstances help define them as Convention refugees. ‘Section 96’ of the ‘Immigration and Refugee Protection Act’ states:

“A Convention refugee is a person, who, by reason of a well‐founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion,   is outside each of their countries of nationality and is unable or, by reason of that fear, unwilling to avail themself of the protection of each of those countries; or   not having a country of nationality, is outside the country of their former habitual residence and is unable or, by reason of that fear, unwilling to return to that country.”

The three Canadian Refugee Programs include the paths refugees take to seek protection, both inside and outside of Canada:

  • Sponsored Refugees by a ‘Group of Five’ members of the refugee’s family, friends, or unknown parties who just want to help a refugee find asylum
  • Refugees referred to IRCC Canada by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees or non-governmental organizations from outside Canada
  • People claiming refugee protection from within Canada

Our researcher, writer, and editor, Janice Mennie, works with Dr. Tofigh and the rest of the MBIS team to produce comprehensive Submission Letters and Lists of Exhibits to ensure all your bases of claims are thoroughly substantiated and presented in a professional and succinct manner. Our stellar success rate speaks for itself. Have a free assessment with Dr. Tofigh to discuss the feasibility of you finding protection in Canada based on your circumstances and receive a realistic response from someone with years of experience helping people find safety in our great country. Once refugee status is granted, we also help with the next step of securing Permanent Residence status in Canada.
