Removal Orders & Admissibility Hearings
Foreign nationals or permanent residents who are believed to have violated the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) are often subject to removal orders or required to appear at admissibility hearings before the Immigration Division (ID) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB).

A person may not be able to enter or remain in Canada if the ID determines that he or she:
- has failed in some way to comply with IRPA
- is a security threat
- has violated human or international rights
- has been involved in crime or organized crime
- has engaged in misrepresentation, such as claiming a false identity
- has a health condition (in some cases)
- does not have enough money to support him or herself, or
- is accompanying an inadmissible family member
Have you been issued a removal order?
In some cases, the CBSA has the power to issue removal orders directly; that is, to send the person out of Canada, without requesting an admissibility hearing.
If you have been notified that a removal order is being enforced against you, you may may eligible to apply for a pre-removal risk assessment (PRRA). Contact us today to see how we can help you.
Do you have an admissibility hearing scheduled ?
The ID holds a hearing for someone at the request of a CBSA officer. The officer provides a report containing the reasons for which he/she believes that the person should not be admitted to, or allowed to stay in, Canada.
Based on the evidence and the testimony of both parties (CBSA and the person concerned), the ID decides whether or not the allegations are founded.
