Bonds required for refugee claimants in Toronto and elsewhere

Printer-friendly version
Resolution number: 
17
November 2003
Whereas: 
  1. The majority of refugee claimants in detention in Toronto and elsewhere are required to pay a bond to be released;
  2. Most refugee claimants do not have friends or relatives to pay the bond;
  3. The bail program in Toronto is very slow and does not accept all claimants.
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR ask CIC and the IRB to release refugee claimants who satisfy their identity requirements, without a bond.
