The Safe Third Country Agreement (Stca)

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) requires ongoing review of all countries designated as safe third countries. The purpose of the review procedure is to ensure that the conditions that led to deportation as a safe third country remain met. McDonald gave the government until the end of January to prepare for the break of the agreement because it understood that it was in the public interest not to terminate the agreement immediately. So far, the United States is the only third-country country classified as a safe third country. Under the agreement, refugee claimants must apply in the first country they arrive between the United States or Canada, unless they are entitled to a waiver. For example, asylum seekers who are citizens of a country other than the United States and who arrive from the United States at the land border between Canada and the United States can only assert their rights to refugees in Canada if they fulfill an exception under the Safe Third Country Agreement. McDonald suspended his decision for six months to give Parliament a chance to respond. The agreement is maintained during this period. Under the agreement, refugee claimants must apply for refugee protection in the first safe country they arrive in, unless they are entitled to a waiver from the agreement. Amid this and other public fears, a survey conducted by Angus Reid in August 2018 found that two-thirds of Canadians believed that the arrival of people seeking asylum in Canada was a “crisis.” Storm Alliance and La Meute, two far-right nationalist groups in Quebec, argued that the situation constituted an “invasion” of Quebec City by “illegals” and regularly held demonstrations on Roxham Road, which held the patriotic sovereign flag. That changed with the election of President Donald Trump in 2016 on a platform that was particularly hostile to migrants and his government`s announcement in 2017 that it would end the term temporary protection status (GST). While the largest group of people receiving GST came from El Salvador (approximately 200,000), the name also included nearly 60,000 Haitians who lived and worked in the United States.
