the IRB plays a leading role in Canada’s refugee determination system?
in 1969, Canada signed the 1951 United Nations Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees, agreeing not to return a person to their country of origin if that person had grounds to fear persecution?
Canada was the first country in the world to implement an immigration points system?
the 1985 Supreme Court of Canada “Singh decision” held that a refugee claim could not be rejected without an oral hearing? This decision led to the creation of the IRB.
the UN High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) awarded Canada the Nansen Refugee Award in 1986 for its outstanding humanitarian tradition of settling refugees?
from August to November 2017, more than 2,000 people crossed Canada’s border illegally each month? In response, the IRB launched an Irregular Border Crossing Response Team.
in 2019, the IRB’s Legacy Task Force substantively cleared its backlog of claims resulting from the 2012 reforms to the refugee protection system?
