Under Bill C-31 Permanent Residence is not permanent for refugees.

If C-31 becomes law, even after a refugee becomes a Permanent Resident of Canada, this status can be revoked—or “cessated”

Under Bill C-31, if country conditions change, or people return to their country of origin because of death or illness in their family,  permanent residence can be cessated.  Refugees have already spent years in limbo during their migration and application. PR status brings the peace of mind that lets people settle in. We have seen that a sense of safety doesn’t start until refugees know they can stay—for good. Prolonging the limbo of uncertain status leaves people feeling unsafe for years.
