Representation Before CBSA Officials
People who have failed to maintain status as a visitor, or who have lost their permanent resident status often have to submit to terms and conditions imposed by the Canada border service agency. These terms and conditions (Ts and Cs) are often imposed during a personal meeting with a CBSA official. Representation at such meetings is highly recommended given the mandate of the Canada Border Service Agency: to enforce removals from Canada. The failure to comply with such terms and conditions could lead to detention at an immigration facility or a jail in Canada. Detained persons have the right to a detention review within approximately 48 hours of being detained before the Immigration Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board. As detention reviews deal with a person’s loss of freedom, and are highly adversarial, representation is essential.
