Urgent Status (Safety)
The Registry may assign your application “Urgent Status (Safety)” if:
- You, or someone in your household, are currently being abused by a family member or by a former partner that you have not lived with in the past three months.
- Your personal safety, or the safety of someone in your household, is under extraordinary threat and moving to a new home will make you safe.
If this situation applies to you, please provide documents that help prove your personal safety is at risk. The documents can be letters from:
- A doctor
- A lawyer
- A police officer
- A priest, minister or other member of the clergy
- A guidance counselor
- The manager of the social housing organization if you live in social housing right now
- A community health worker
- A social service worker
- A victim services worker
- A settlement services worker
- A shelter worker
The Registry will ask you to attend an interview with one of their staff.
