Proposed regulatory amendments: Inadmissibility due to sanctions

Current status: Closed

Open on and will close to new input on .


The Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR) prescribe those inadmissibility grounds for which removal orders are to be issued by the Immigration Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) and those for which removal orders are to be issued by the Minister's Delegate (i.e. a Canada Border Services Agency or Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada official).

Amendments are proposed to the IRPR to transfer the authority to issue removal orders from the IRB to the Minister's Delegate for two new sanction-related inadmissibility provisions brought into force by Private Member's Bill S-226, the Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act (Sergei Magnitsky Law).
