Removal Order Appeal

Most permanent residents who receive a removal order have a right to appeal to the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB). This option is available to permanent residents, unless the removal order was made on grounds of security, violating human or international rights, serious criminality, or organized criminality. To start an appeal, you must file a Notice of Appeal within 30 days of receiving the removal order.  Even when the decision to issue a removal order is deemed correct, an appeal can still be won if there are sufficient humanitarian and compassionate grounds. Removal appeals are complex and require expert knowledge of the laws and regulations of Canadian immigration. With over 25 years of experience, we can assist you in deciding if it is suitable to pursue an appeal, properly presenting your case before the IAD. Foreign nationals who wish to challenge a removal order must apply to the Federal Court of Canada for a judicial review.
