Foreign nationals can file asylum claim at port of entry or claim refugee protection inside Canada if they fear persecution or danger to their life if they return to their country of citizenship or of usual residence.
The Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) is an independent board that makes decisions on immigration and refugee matters.
The IRB decides who is a Convention refugee or a person in need of protection.
Convention refugees are outside their home country or the country they normally live in. They’re not able to return because of a well-founded fear of persecution based on
being part of a social group, such as women or people of a particular sexual orientation
A person in need of protection is a person in Canada who can’t return to their home country safely. This is because, if they return, they may face
danger of torture
risk to their life
risk of cruel and unusual treatment or punishment
Your refugee claim may not be eligible to be referred to the IRB if you

Applicants claim asylum in Canada either at the port of entry or inside Canada at an IRCC office.
If their claim is accepted, it is forwarded to IRB. Applicants get work permit to work in Canada. They also get health coverage under Interim Federal Health program.
Refugee Protection division of IRB sets a date of hearing the claim.
Upon approval applicants can apply for Permanent Residence of Canada.
In case of refusal, applicant can appeal the decision in Refugee Appeal division.
If the application is refused from RAD, the next level is Federal court.
If applicant’s claim is refused even from Federal court, their departure order is converted to deportation order.
Applicants file PRRA (Pre-Removal Risk Assessment) before their departure as a last attempt to prove their claim.
