Raul and his family were promised an asylum hearing but this was cancelled in April. Hearings are crucial to establishing a claimant's legal status in Canada. Without that status, they struggle to convince employers to hire them or landlords to rent to them. Claimants cannot access loans or student financial aid, or update academic or professional credentials to meet Canadian standards.  REUTERS/Chris Helgren

Raul, who spends his days at a local library or working out in the hotel gym, says he has been repeatedly rejected by landlords.
