Refugee Appeal Division, 2020

(1 customer review)


The Refugee Appeal Division:

  • provides certain claimants an opportunity to appeal their negative refugee decision by showing the decision was wrong in fact or law or both, and
  • lets new evidence be introduced that was not reasonably available at the time of the Refugee Protection Division process.

The appeal is paper-based, with oral hearings in exceptional cases. The RAD will base its decision on the documents provided by the parties involved and the RPD record.

The appeal process will be done by Governor in Council (GIC) appointees.
