RCO's seconded from CIC

Resolution number: 
12
November 1997
Whereas: 
  1. CIC has responsibility for enforcement of the Immigration Act including, among other things, interdiction, the assessment of eligibility of refugee claimants, the opposing of refugee claims in certain instances and the removal of unsuccessful refugee claimants from Canada;
  2. The employment by the IRB (CRDD) of RCO's previously or presently employees of Canada Immigration gives rise to an appearance of bias and is inconsistent with the non-adversarial model of refugee determination;
Therefore be it resolved: 

That the CCR express its opposition to the recruitment of previous or present CIC employees for the role of RCO.

Working Group: 
Inland Protection
