Immigration Detention & Removal Orders Hearings

If you or someone you know has been detained and has been asked to go to a detention review hearing or a removal order hearing before the Immigration Division (ID) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB), do not fear. We can help.

Detention Review Hearings

The Canada Border Services Agency’s (CBSA) role is to manage, control and secure Canadian borders. It is responsible for detaining people who do not have the right to enter or stay in Canada, as well as for removing these people from the country.

The ID hears your case and decides whether you should be released or stay in detention. The ID is an independent administrative tribunal that makes legally binding decisions.

If you are a Permanent Resident or a Foreign National, you have the right to an independent hearing to review why you are being detained. When the CBSA detains you, it must tell the Immigration Division of the IRB. An IRB decision-maker, called a member, will then hold a detention review hearing within 48 hours of your detention or as soon as possible afterward. At the end of your hearing, the member will decide whether you will be released or stay in detention.

You will receive a notice telling you where and when your detention review hearing will be held.

You must be always prepared to argue a Removal Order Hearing in case your detention review hearing turns into a Removal Order Hearing.
