Canada formally addressed the Immigration and Refugee Policy framework in the year 1976. Canada remained a preferred country for refugee settlement (Challinor). There is a flipside to the Canadian Refugee Policy framework, for instance the Safe Third Country Agreement of the 2004 was formulated to restrict the refugee movement from country to country. This agreement as claimed by Audrey Macklin conveyed a sense of resentment among the Canadian public against the refugees seeking asylum in Canada (Fornwald). Their recognition as foreigners or asylum seekers by creating a false sense of threat puts them in an extremely vulnerable position. The citizens of the nation turn hostile towards these refugees by considering their needs illegitimate and unreasonable. Fornwald also brings to light that the visa laws of Canada are extremely preferential towards the majority of the ‘white’ population countries i.e. only 19% of them require visa to access the Canadian borders but about 81% of the Global south population requires visa to enter Canada (Fornwald). Such political steps being taken despite Canada’s humanitarian pathway for refugees create a sense of hypocrisy on the part of the Canadian government and the vulnerability of the refugees living in Canada or seeking asylum multiplies immensely.
