Forward Regulatory Plan: 2018-2020
Conclusive Findings of Fact Related to Inadmissibility Under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA)

Description of the objective

Regulations 14 and 15 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) articulate findings of fact made by criminal courts, and other bodies, that shall be considered as conclusive findings of fact for immigration inadmissibility purposes, such as those relating to certain security or human/international rights violations grounds. These regulations will be reviewed with a view to adding additional findings of fact related to serious inadmissibility grounds, including organized criminality. Regulatory amendments are intended to support an efficient and effective inadmissibility determination process.

Enabling Act: Immigration and Refugee Protection Act
