Challenging a decision in Federal Court
The Federal Court has the power to review final decisions on immigration or refugee status. This includes decisions made by:
- the Refugee Appeal Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board
- the Refugee Protection Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board when there is no right of appeal to the Refugee Appeal Division
- Canada Border Services Agency or Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) (formerly Citizenship and Immigration Canada or CIC), finding claimants ineligible for a hearing at the Refugee Protection Division
Federal Court applications are complicated. It is important to have help from a lawyer with experience in Federal Court applications.
