Hello,

I hope someone can help me as soon as possible.

I am a Protected Person in Canada and I applied for my PR a few months ago. My Medical Report was requested and I sent it in.

My younger sister who resides in my home country where i fled from has just informed me that our father has fallen ill. I can't compare the love that I have for my father with anyone one besides my daughter. September will make 3 years since I moved to Canada and almost every night for the passed year, I've cried myself to sleep hoping, praying and wishing to reunite with my father again. He has been my best friend for as long as I can remember and parting with him has been the toughest thing I had to endure.

Many nights I go to bed just hoping that I will have a chance to see him at least one more time before he passes. I promised myself I'd make it memorable. The thing is, I am not sure if there is a procedure that exists for the Canadian government to allow Protected persons to leave on these conditions. My father cannot travel and I'd at least love to have the opportunity to attend his funeral if he passes before I can visit him without consequences.

Can someone please provide any useful information regarding these circumstances?

1. Sorry about your father.
2. If you return to the country that you have claimed refugee against, it is unlikely that you would be readmitted to Canada as you are not yet a Permanent resident. The same would apply if you returned to your home country, as a PR, using your home country passport, there is a very good chance that IRCC would report you for "refoulement"
