Detention Reviews

If you are detained for immigration reasons: what happens next?

Within 48 hours (or as soon as possible afterwards) after detained by Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), a member of the IRB Immigration Division must review the reasons for your detention at an independent hearing called a detention review. You and your counsel if have will appear at the hearing and the member will decide whether you will be released or remain in deten¬tion. If you are ordered to remain in detention, a second review will be held after 7 days, and if you are still ordered to be detained, the reasons for your detention will be reviewed every 30 days thereafter. Note: You have the right to request an early detention review if you have new information.

“The counsel at Bash Ali & Associates came to my detention review at 7:30 am at Immigration Holding Centre located at 385 Rexdale Blvd, Etobicoke, ON, and by afternoon I was released. The counsel effectively helped me choose the quality bond person and effectively presented the bondsperson to the Immigration Division and presented my case facts and circumstances to the Board member. I would recommend Bash Ali and Associates to anyone in my situation to reduce the stress of immigration litigation process.” – F.Usman, Toronto.
