Compelling and Compassionate

Criteria 3003(c) and 3004(c) require the decision-maker to be satisfied that the applicant became an illegal entrant or a person without a substantive visa because of factors beyond the applicant’s control.

Two requirements must be satisfied:

There must be factors that caused the applicant to become an illegal entrant or a person without a substantive visa and those factors must have been beyond the applicant’s control.

The element of causation is important. It is not sufficient that factors beyond the control of the applicant existed. Those factors must have caused the applicant to become an illegal entrant or a person without a substantive visa.
