Forward Regulatory Plan: 2018-2020
Recovery of Removal Costs

Description of the objective

Section 243 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations outlines requirements for the recovery of removal costs from foreign nationals that have been removed from Canada at the government's expense.

This regulation, including the prescribed amount to be recovered, will be reviewed and updated to account for adjustments, such as inflation and other contemporary cost factors, which have emerged since the regulation was established.

Enabling Act: Immigration and Refugee Protection Act

Indication of business impacts

There are no expected business impacts.

Public consultation opportunities

Interested parties will be given a chance to participate in developing the regulations through initial online consultations (to be posted on the CBSA and Consulting with Canadians websites) and through pre-publication of the regulations in Part I of the Canada Gazette.
