I have a friend in Iran and I was wondering who is eligible for asylum and what are its benefits? How can I help him apply if it’s appropriate for his case?

    In Canada, we call it a Refugee claim, not Asylum but it generally means the same thing. People how have a well founded fear of persecution in their home country and are in need of protection are generally eligible to make a refugee claim in Canada. If you are approved as as a refugee, you can stay in Canada and make an application for Canadian permanent residence on that basis.
