The Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) is the division of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) that is tasked with hearing appeals on immigration matters involving Canadian citizens or permanent residents. This includes sponsorship appeals, removal order appeals and residency obligation appeals.
The Government can also appeal select decisions to the IAD relating to inadmissibility. MAKING AN APPEAL TO THE IAD The appeal process begins when an immigration official refuses your family sponsorship application or permanent resident (PR) card renewal/permanent resident travel document (PRTD) application.
It can also begin with the issuance of a removal order. If you decide to appeal to the IAD and have filed a Notice to Appeal form to the correct IAD region, you will receive confirmation of the appeal with your file number. As the person making the appeal, you will be referred to as the appellant. The IRCC will be referred to as the Minister or the respondent and they will be represented by an officer from the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
Once the appeal is filed, the IAD will request a copy of the appeal record from the Minister. The Minister must provide it to you and to the IAD within 120 days from the date requested. The record will be in evidence at the hearing. For more info please call us at - 416-944-3267 or visit our FAQ / Blog / Contact
