Advocate effectively for detained immigrants at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada

Every year in Canada, thousands of immigrants are detained in holding centres and jails, and the numbers continue to grow year over year. Immigrants can be arrested without warrant and held indefinitely without charge, but all detainees are entitled to regular detention reviews. If you work with immigrant detainees, you need to know how to present an effective case at detention review hearings to secure their release.

This one-stop resource presents a comprehensive overview of the detention review process administered by the Immigration Division, a branch of the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) of Canada. More than just a summary of the law that governs detention reviews, this guide outlines practical steps that can help you to secure a detainee’s release.
