What is the test for a claim of persecution?

Canada (Federal), Canada

The following excerpt is from Wehbe v. Canada (Citizenship and Immigration), 2010 FC 312 (CanLII):

The applicants submit that they met the burden of proof in establishing a well-founded fear of persecution. Even if an individual incident of persecution is not accepted, it does not mean that a claimant did not experience persecution or have good grounds for fearing persecution; Madelat v. Canada (Minister of Employment and Immigration), [1991] F.C.J. No. 49.
