Posted by admin - Bellissimo Law Group PC

During the central region IAD consultative committee meeting that took place on March 8th, 2012 at the IRB premises, Hazelyn Ross (Chair) reported that the Counsel Evening Series held on February 28th, 2012 was a success, with high participant turnout. However, Counsels agreed with Hazelyn that in order to reduce costs, future events should take place at the Immigration and Refugee Board at 74 Victoria Street instead of at the Law Society of Upper Canada.

Hazelyn also announced that Kim Workun has been designated Deputy Chairperson of the Immigration Appeal Division of the IRB. He also made known that an Immigration Appeal Division Tribunal officer will be transferred to the Refugee Protection Division in order to reduce the number of IAD Tribunal Officer.
