Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Launches Canadian Refugee Protection Portal (CRPP)

Beginning October 6, 2021, persons in Canada wishing to make a claim for refugee protection (with or without the assistance of a representative) can create a secure CRPP account, complete a questionnaire and submit supporting documents, including their completed basis of claim form, online.

After October 6th, the CRPP will be the primary means of submitting a claim. No new claims for refugee protection via email or Connect will be possible after that date.

Individuals who have already made a claim via email or started the process of making a claim for refugee protection via Connect do not need to resubmit their documents through the CRPP. They can continue using Connect to submit required documentation.

For further information and instructions on this new initiative, please check the IRCC’s website.
