Good afternoon,

I was wondering if it’s possible to apply for asylum in Canada if your asylum claim in the USA has been denied. I’ve heard that it’s not possible anymore but I want to make sure.

I would like to know if it’s possible in the two following scenarios:

1. claim asylum at an un-oficial border crossing with no family members.

2. claim asylum at an official or un-oficial border with Canadian citizen family members (daughter, grandsons) residing in Canada.

You can potentially arrive at the border and claim asylum, but the review would most likely render you ineligible given the US refusal.

If you make it to Canada, you'd likely be held in detention until your claim was dismissed.

Thank you for your answer it’s unfortunate that the USA affects the asylum Canadian process

An asylum claim anywhere would affect the Canadian process. If your claim to asylum is rejected in one country, it's not necessarily likely to be approved elsewhere.

I understand the fact that it’s unlikely for it to be approved but I didn’t know that you couldn’t even make the claim at all

Applies to any country in the world. A previous refugee claim anywhere would result in a refusal, not just from the US. It’s assumed if your claim is rejected elsewhere, as those countries are signatories to the UN, the process is the same. A failed claim in the US would result in a failed claim in Canada. It’s a means of preventing asylum shopping.

The whole basis of an asylum claim ia fear for your life. So if you got to Canada and applied for asylum and then withdrew your application and returned home it is tough to prove that you now fear for your life again. At this point you can't even get to Canada.

coming back was also a reason of fear of life of family back in country so had to return.

If you have a visa to another country I would consider going there. You can also check to see if your US visa has been cancelled. Getting into Canada the way you did is no longer possible.

If you have family members who are Canadian why don’t they sponsor you as a relative ?
