Refugee Protection Claims (Legacy) by Country of Alleged Persecution - 2020

​​

Please note that claims finalized in a given time period may have been referred in a previous time period. The following table includes all types of cases referred to the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) before December 15, 2012 (legacy). Also included are claims that have been returned to the IRB by the Federal Court for re-determination, as well as other types of matters heard by the IRB (such as applications to reopen). Not included in the table are applications to vacate or to cease refugee protection.

  • Claims finalized in a given time period may have been referred to the IRB in a previous time period.
  • The country of alleged persecution in the table below corresponds to the first listed country of alleged persecution as identified by the claimant when they made their claim to an officer from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) or from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), and which was entered in the IRB case management system.
  • Only countries for which a claim was referred, finalized, or pending within this time period are displayed.
  • The table below reflects the data on countries contained within the IRB case management system and is used solely to support the refugee determination process. The fact that these countries are listed should not be construed as implying that the IRB recognizes these particular countries’ sovereignty or political status. Furthermore, country names may not accurately reflect the current geopolitical situation; rather, they reflect the information as it is currently captured in the IRB case management system.
