Removal Order Appeals

Introduction

If you are a permanent resident of Canada, a refugee, or a foreign national with a permanent resident visa, and you have been ordered removed from Canada, you may appeal to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB). You must appeal within 30 days of receiving the removal order. The appeal process involves a public hearing between the appellant and a Minister’s counsel representing Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA). As part of our services, we can represent you during this hearing to ensure all the necessary details of your case are presented to help dismiss the removal order.

If your initial appeal to IAD is rejected, you may appeal to the Federal Court of Canada for a review of IRB’s decision, and must be represented by a lawyer. If the federal court accepts your appeal, it will be returned to IAD for re-hearing.

Inadmissibility

If your family member is inadmissible to Canada, you may not appeal. Inadmissibility is determined by the following factors:

  • A serious criminal offence
  • Involvement in organized crime
  • Security reasons
  • Violations of human or international rights

If you have been ordered removed from Canada within the last 30 days, do not wait. Contact us immediately, and we can assist you with the appeal process.
