Deportation – Removal Order Appeal
Permanent residents in Canada can lose their permanent residence status and be ordered deported from Canada if they have breached the terms of their status. In most cases, the order can be appealed to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration Refugee Board (IRB).
The individual must appeal within 30 days of receiving the removal order. The IAD may allow or dismiss the appeal.
A person may not appeal if he or she has been found to be inadmissible to Canada due to the following:
- a serious criminal offence punished in Canada by a term of imprisonment of at least six months or more;
- involvement in organized crime;
- security grounds; or
- violations of human or international rights
The decision of the IAD may be judicially reviewed by either party to the Federal Court Trial Division with leave of the Court.
