On September 7, 2021, the Government of Canada introduced new guidance to assess resettlement applicants’ applications who are outside their country of nationality or habitual residence. According to the new instructions, officers will consider reasons why an applicant fled their country of nationality or habitual residence, as well as the circumstances when applicants returned to their country. Resettlement applicants are not required to establish residence in another country. These instructions aim to help officers assess applications of resettled Afghan refugees.
