If I have refugee travel document issued in Kenya, is it possible for me to travel to Canada without visa? Or being refused to grant me a visa?

You would need to apply for a visa:

Most refugees or stateless people need a visa to travel to Canada

You would still need to meet the basic requirements (and having a refugee travel document would not, in itself, disqualify you from being granted a visa):

Basic travel requirements

You must meet some basic requirements to travel to Canada. You must:

  • have a valid travel document, like a passport
  • be in good health
  • have no criminal or immigration-related convictions
  • convince an immigration officer that you have ties—such as a job, home, financial assets or family—that will take you back to your home country
  • convince an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your visit
  • have enough money for your stay. The amount of money you will need depends on how long you will stay and if you will stay in a hotel, or with friends or relatives.

You may also need a medical exam and letter of invitation from someone who lives in Canada.

Some people are not admissible to Canada, which means they are not allowed to enter the country.

  • Which for a refugee is impossible to get the "convince an immigration officer that you have ties—such as a job, home, financial assets or family—that will take you back to your home country", but if one interpret "home" as hosting country. – Giacomo Catenazzi Jul 24 '18 at 13:46

    @GiacomoCatenazzi In this case, it is ties to the country of refuge they will look for. – Michael Hampton Jul 24 '18 at 13:49
