Canadian Refugee Procedure/Communicating with the Division

RPD Rule 2Edit

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.

What are the registry offices specified by the Division?Edit

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 offices "specified by the Division" to receive communications within the meaning of this rule.[1]
