Description of the objective
The Standing Joint Committee for the Scrutiny of Regulations has recommended the addition of a set of minimum factors to those factors already considered by a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officer or member of the Immigration Division (ID) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada when they fulfill the requirements under subsection 47(2) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR).
