Hardcover Book + e-Book,
There is no question that immigration and refugee law changes have continued to take the centre stage of legislative activities in Canada.
On December 15, 2012, the system for determining refugee claims made in Canada underwent significant changes as a result of the coming into force of the Balanced Refugee Reform Act
and the Protecting Canada's Immigration System Act.
Immigration and refugee law practitioners and consultants must be aware of all these recent changes and their implications on their practice. Canadian Immigration & Refugee Law Practice, 2014 Edition
provides you with an overview of the new legislative framework of Canadian immigration and refugee law along with guiding principles for the exercise of discretion by the Immigration and Refugee Board. The book captures the latest legislative updates and case law, with extensive commentary on the implications of both the recent and pending changes.
This invaluable reference for immigration law practitioners and consultants also provides thematically organized case digests from the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act
and the Citizenship Act,
and key sections of the regulations, rules, and related legislation. Plus, the book also includes an unannotated version of the Act in double-column English and French, making it easy to locate a section of legislation when representing a case.Features
