Appeals before Immigration Appeal Division (IAD)

The Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) hears three types of immigration appeals:

1. Sponsor appeal

If you are a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident and your application to sponsor the immigration of a close family member to Canada has been refused, you may appeal to the IAD.

2. Removal order appeal 

Permanent residents who have been issued a removal order by the ID may also appeal to the IAD. 

3. Residency obligation appeal 

A permanent resident may be found inadmissible by having not met the residency obligation, then the PR may lose the permanent resident status. the person concerned may appeal that decision to the IAD. If the appeal is allowed, you will be able to keep your permanent resident status.  If the appeal is dismissed, you will lose your permanent resident status.
