Expansion of the Safe Third Country Agreement (STCA) – what it means for those seeking refuge in Canada

Recorded on Thursday April 20, 2023

This webinar discusses exceptions to the STCA and how to make a refugee claim at a port of entry under an exception. It also outlines the dangers faced by claimants who enter Canada irregularly between ports of entry and are at risk of deportation to the U.S. during their first 14 days in Canada. We provide valuable information to share with clients who may have family members or friends hoping to make a refugee claim in Canada.
