Many appeals of refused Refugee Board decisions are made to the Refugee Appeal Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board. Some, such as appeals brought by people who made their refugee claim at the Canada/US border, can only be made to the Federal Court. Both Refugee Appeal Division and Federal Court appeals are extremely complex and the rights the refugee has while the appeal is being argued varies depending on the type of appeal.
Appeals of a refusal of an overseas refugee application may only go to the Federal Court.
The time to start an appeal once a decision is made is very short. You must start your appeal very quickly after you learn that you have lost your refugee claim.
