Subject: Changes to the humanitarian and compassionate prov
 

At Royal Assent, several changes to the humanitarian and compassionate (H&C) provisions of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act came into effect.

Effective immediately,

* a person cannot have two H&C applications pending at the same time;
* H&C decision makers will no longer consider risks that are assessed within the refugee protection process, i.e. risk of persecution based on grounds set out in the Refugee Convention or risk of torture, or of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment.

The new measures also confirm in legislation the existing policy that an H&C application is not considered complete until the appropriate fees have been paid. As well, the new legislation separates out the public policy provision from the H&C provision.
