Refugee Appeal Division

Resolution number
  1. The Minister of Citizenship and Immigration has delayed the implementation of the Refugee Appeal Division without postponing the introduction of one-member IRB panels;
  2. Refugee claimants' right to a fair hearing is thereby inadequately protected;
  3. The Minister announced orally on May 17, 2002 that he would implement the appeal within one year;
Therefore be it resolved

That the CCR call on the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to:

  1. Implement the RAD immediately;
  2. If he is unwilling to implement the RAD immediately, to:  a) repeat in writing his commitment to implement the RAD within one year.  b) delay the reduction of IRB panel members until the RAD is implemented.
