Hearing at the immigration and refugee board

IRB Hearing Process:

Hearings at the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) are held to determine the admissibility of a person to Canada, or to decide on an application for refugee protection. The IRB is an independent administrative tribunal that makes decisions on immigration and refugee matters in Canada.

During a hearing, a member of the IRB will listen to evidence and arguments from both the person making the application (the applicant) and the government of Canada. The applicant has the opportunity to present their case and explain why they should be allowed to stay in Canada or be granted refugee protection. The government may also present evidence or arguments against the applicant’s case.

After considering all the evidence and arguments, the member will make a decision on the matter and issue a written decision. The decision of the IRB can be appealed to the Federal Court of Canada.

It is important to prepare thoroughly for a hearing at the IRB. This may include gathering relevant documents, preparing a written statement outlining your case, and finding any other evidence to support your case. It is also recommended to seek legal representation from regulated canadian immigration consultant or ask our refugee lawyer in montreal if possible, as the immigration and refugee process can be complex.
