Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada to Audit Long-term Detention Reviews

Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada

The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) will carry out an independent audit of detention reviews by the Immigration Division. The audit, to be completed this Fall, will examine a sample of detention reviews from closed files involving long-term detention in order to obtain more detailed information regarding the level of depth and rigour in which detention reviews are conducted nationally.

More Information: 

The results of the audit, which will be made available in due course, will guide the IRB in its continuous improvement activities, inform the development of the revised Guideline on Detention, and more broadly help to ensure high quality proceedings and decisions for individuals subject to a detention review by the Immigration Division.
