Immigration Hearings

The Immigration and Refugee Board has four branches:

  • The Immigration Division
  • The Immigration Appeal Division
  • The Refugee Appeal Division
  • The Refugee Protection Division

The first point of contact for most non-Canadians who are illegally in Canada or whose status is uncertain is the Immigration Division.

The Immigration Division is responsible for conducting:

  • Admissibility hearings;
  • Issuing removal (such as deportation) orders and ;
  • Conducting detention reviews.

Appeals from orders of the Immigration Division can either go to the Federal Court or the Immigration Appeal Division. The Immigration Appeal Division typically handles appeals of refused (out of Canada) sponsorships and removal orders made against permanent residents.

We have over 50 years of experience in representing clients from over 70 countries.  We have an excellent reputation at the Board, and are certified as Immigration Specialists by The Law Society of Upper Canada.  Our success is as a result of thorough preparation for each case
