Description of the objective
The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) is developing proposed amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations to automatically invalidate certain immigration documents (temporary resident visas, electronic travel authorizations (eTAs) and temporary resident permits) in cases where the holder of the document is issued a removal order that becomes enforceable. Removal orders become enforceable when various conditions are met.
These regulatory changes will create a consistency with the current automatic invalidation regulations for work and study permits that exist when removal orders become enforceable. These changes promote program integrity and streamline the admissibility determination process.
Enabling Act: Immigration and Refugee Protection Act
