Can I make a refugee claim if I have made a claim in the United States?

There are presently no bars against making refugee claims in Canada if you have previously claimed refugee status in the U.S.  However, if you claimed in the U.S. and you were sucessful resulting in U.S. status, such status would exclude you from the provisions of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.
