Information sessions are being held to help refugee appellants better understand the appeal process and how to properly file and perfect their appeals. The Refugee Appeal Division (RAD) supports this initiative in order to maintain an efficient appeal process. The sessions are offered in our three main regional offices located in Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
In Toronto and Vancouver, they are organized in cooperation with local non-governmental organizations. Sessions usually last around 60 to 90 minutes, are held free-of-charge and address the following questions:
- Who can file an appeal of a decision rendered by the Refugee Protection Division (RPD)?
- How to file an appeal?
- What is needed to perfect an appeal?
- How is an appeal processed at RAD and what are the possible outcomes?
