Admissibility Hearings

Under the immigration laws of Canada, if the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) has reason to believe that you should not enter or remain in Canada, you may be ordered to appear at an immigration admissibility hearing before the Immigration Division of the IRB. A member of the Immigration Division will then decide whether you are admissible, i.e. whether or not you may enter or remain in Canada.

Detention Reviews

When the Canadian Border Services Agency detains a person, a detention review is held to determine whether the detention should be continued under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. Detention Reviews are conducted by the Immigration Division (ID) of the Immigration and Refugee Board.

Stay Motions

If you get a removal order to leave Canada, you may need a stay motion. A stay is an exceptional remedy that allows a temporary postponement of your removal. A stay does not allow you to stay in Canada permanently.

If you have received a date by which you have to leave Canada, you can hire an immigration lawyer to file a motion to stay the removal. Only lawyers are allowed to appear before the Federal Court.
