Canadian Refugee Procedure/Communicating with the Division

The RuleEdit

The text of the relevant rule reads:

Communicating with Division

2 All communication with the Division must be directed to the registry office specified by the Division.

CommentaryEdit

The registry offices are specified on the IRB website, including in the Board's Claimant's Guide. The only registries are in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal. While the IRB has offices in other cities, such as Ottawa, Winnipeg, and Calgary, these offices do not have registries and are not registry officers "specified by the Division" to receive communications within the meaning of this rule.[1]
