Documents to support your refugee claim

Documents are an important part of your claim. They will help prove who you are, how you came to Canada, why you are making a refugee claim and why your refugee claim should be accepted.

While it can be very helpful to have documents to confirm every part of your refugee claim, it is possible to succeed with your case with few supporting documents.

It is also important to know that the use of false documents intended to mislead the IRB can lead to the rejection of your refugee claim.

To help you learn about gathering and submitting your documents or what to do if you receive a document after the deadline to submit it to the Refugee Protection Division (RPD), use the sidebar on the right side of the page to navigate between each section.
