Canada is dedicated to providing a safe haven to those individuals who need refugee protection. Canada has different initiatives related to refugee protection so that people from all over the world that are experiencing persecution can have a safe place they can go to. Primarily the refugee protection system in Canada is two tier. The first part consists of those individuals who are making a claim for refugee protection from inside the borders of Canada and secondly, there are those individuals who are seeking refugee protection from outside Canada. Regardless of where the claim is being made from Canada is dedicated to protecting these individuals and providing them with a safe asylum so that they can be free of persecution and live their life as productive and contributing citizens of Canadian society.
