Canada has an obligation to grant protection to Convention refugees and persons in need of protection under a number of United Nations conventions to which it is a signatory. These include the Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees (1951), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966) and the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman and Degrading Treatment or Punishment (1984).
Canada’s New Refugee Determination System
On December 15, 2012, amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act came into force. These changes have had a significant impact on the process of granting refugee protection.
Our license gives us the right to represent refugee claimant during deliberating of an application and determination of refugee protection at Refugee Protection Division of Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.
