What is a Detention Review

Posted by admin - Bellissimo Law Group PC

Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) will detain a foreign national or permanent resident on grounds of:

  • improbability of their appearing for their hearing or removal,
  • being a danger to the public or having violated human or international rights, or
  • not having established their identity.

A detention review hearing determines whether or not the detainee should remain in detention, be released or be removed from the country.
