An H&C application is a Humanitarian and Compassion application.
Applying for H&C lets immigrants ask for special permission to stay in Canada (for
humanitarian and compassionate reasons) while their permanent residence
application is processed. Usually H&C is a last attempt to stay in Canada.
An application for permanent residency based on H&C grounds requires applicants to demonstrate to the courts that they have compelling reasons for remaining in Canada based on their establishment, separation from family members in Canada, best interest of their child and hardship they would suffer in their home country, also taking into account the country’s current conditions. Cost and inconvenience are not considered excessive hardship.
