Canadian Refugee Procedure

There are many books about the substance of refugee law, in Canada and internationally. They cover subjects such as what it means to have a well-founded fear of persecution and when a claimant has access to adequate state protection. This is not one of them. This is a book about the legal processes involved in claiming refugee status in Canada, focusing particularly on the Refugee Protection Division Rules of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada. Tens of thousands of people file a claim for refugee protection in Canada every year. The ensuing process that they navigate is governed by the set of laws described herein.
