What is a refugee protection hearing?

Refugee claimants who are found to be eligible to make a claim are scheduled for a hearing with a member of the Refugee Protection Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board. The Board member will decide whether to accept or refuse the claim.

Claimants have the right to a hearing in English or in French. The Basis of Claim Form asks claimants to choose the language they want the Board to use for their hearing and in communicating with them.
