Hearings and Appeals
In Canada, permanent residents can lose their status and can be deported if they have breached any terms of their status. One common example is a person who has been convicted of certain crimes – this person can be deported even if gainfully employed or with a family in Canada. There are certain situations when the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) can consider specific circumstances of a case, and allow a permanent resident to remain in Canada. The IAD considers such things as family ties to the country, as well as the extenuating circumstances of the crime.
Detention Review Hearings
An “immigration hold" is used by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to keep some people in custody for interviews and hearings that are pending, or to make sure they attend deportation proceedings. Those on “immigration hold” should be informed about why they are in detention. There are various reasons for detention including: interview with regard to arrival in Canada; loss of status while residing in Canada; a particular criminal activity; or direct violation of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. All are legal causes for the CIC to invoke detention.
Detention release can occur when an immigration officer makes a decision that detention is no longer required. It is then legally ordered by a member of the Immigration and Refugee Board.
At an airport or border crossing, an immigration officer can deny entry to Canada without having a hearing. This can happen if an immigration officer believes a person to be inadmissible because of a previous criminal conviction. However, if the person being denied is a permanent resident, or if the issues are more complicated), admissibility will be made at an Admissibility Hearing at the Immigration and Refugee Board.
