Canada sees spike in rejection of permanent resident applications on compassionate grounds
CA, 19 Jul 2021

Canada allows some people, like migrant workers, who would not usually meet the criteria for permanent residency to apply on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. They're considered on a case-by-case basis according to factors such as how settled someone is here or the best interests of children.
As David Akin reports, advocates are warning vulnerable workers are being put at even greater risk.
