What is the test for compelling reasons to refuse to grant refugee status?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Manefo v. Canada (Minister of Citizenship and Immigration), 2001 FCT 538 (CanLII):

I agree with the respondent's argument on this issue. The facts of this matter are not subject to such an analysis. The issue of "compelling reasons" must be considered only when a person determined to be a Convention refugee risks losing that status (see Corrales v. MCI [1997], F.C.J. No.1283). (e) No credible basis finding
