Dear @Rkshah77,


Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing your situation with us.


In order to answer your question, may I ask you - what is your exact legal status in Germany? Are you a recognized refugee or have you been granted asylum?

Here's a thread that explains what options you have as a (studying) refugee in Germany if you want to go to Canada: https://www.wefugees.de/801796/moving-to-canada-being-a-refugee-and-a-university-student?show=801796#q801796

If you wonder if you are eligible for the permanent residency in Canada, have a look at this website from the Canadian government:

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=006&top=10

or the direct way to check your eligibility: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/come-canada-tool.html

There is also the Canadian refugee resettlement program: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/refugees/help-outside-canada.html

However, note that you can only be referred by the UNHCR, "a designated referral organization, or a private sponsorship group" and as Nilab explained in her answer in the thread I sent you, 

"You are not eligible if:

  • you have another stable option for protection, such as an offer to be resettled in another country" (which applies if you are a recognized refugee in Germany)
I hope these sources help to answer parts of your question, please feel free to reach out to us again if you need further assistance!
All the best,
Isa
