Asylum seekers whose claims are rejected, withdrawn or abandoned will also be banned from applying for permanent residency on humanitarian grounds within a year of the refugee board s decision, a government source confirmed with the Star , according to The Star. Canada does not currently have a list of safe countries of origin, countries considered capable of providing state protection to its citizens. However, democratic countries such as Mexico and Hungary currently key source countries of Canada s refugee claimants are likely to be designated as such by the immigration minister once the new act takes effect, other sources say and the federal Conservatives will table a new bill Thursday removing the right of appeal for failed refugee claimants from so-called safe countries, the Star has learned. These changes will essentially return the Balanced Refugee Reform Act, passed by the House of Commons in 2010, to its original form restoring the most contentious clauses removed by the then Conservative minority government under opposition pressure.
