Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun had said she feared death if she was deported back home.
Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland accompanied her outside the airport, and addressed the media, saying Alqunun was "a very brave new Canadian".
They both re-entered the airport after Freeland's statement.
Freeland said Alqunun had a "very long and tiring journey" and would not take any questions that day.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Canada would accept Alqunun as a refugee, capping a dramatic week that saw her flee her family while visiting Kuwait and before flying to Bangkok, where she barricaded herself in an airport hotel to avoid deportation.
