Hey, we’re back with another blog that you’ll undoubtedly find interesting. So, I was thinking about something that most of us don’t want to discuss. Considering the topic, what could be better about the removal orders? Let’s talk about the removal order in Canada. Doesn’t that sound intriguing? I know it’s not something anyone wants to think about, and I wish no one had to, but what’s the harm in knowing? Let me start by explaining what a removal order is.
A removal order means that you cannot stay in Canada and have to leave the country. In other words, it is a legal document issued by the Canadian government ordering an individual who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident to leave the country. The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA), which governs immigration in Canada, issues removal orders. However, the order’s recipient has the option of appealing the decision. Also, there are three types of removal orders, Departure Order, Exclusion Order, and deportation orders.
Let’s get started and learn everything we can about these hot-button issues.
Commencing with the first order is the Departure Order.
- This is given to people who are deemed unsuitable to Canada for a variety of reasons, such as failing to meet entry requirements, exceeding their permitted period of stay, or violating Canadian immigration laws.
- We can tell by the sound of the order that it is the least severe. In this order, the recipient has to leave the country within 30 days of receiving the order and has to confirm their departure with the CBSA while leaving the country at the exit port.
- If the recipient does not leave the country within 30 days or does not confirm their departure, the Departure order unquestionably converts into a deportation order.
- However, if these procedures are followed then the recipient can return to the country, assuming all the entry requirements are met. Though, Authorization to return to Canada (ARC) will be required. In which the Canadian immigration officer will decide if you will be allowed to return to Canada again.
Moving ahead to our next severe removal order, that is, the Exclusion Order.
- This order applies to individuals declared prohibited because their existence appears to pose a risk or danger to Canada’s society or security.
- The recipient of this order is not allowed to return to the country within one year.
- If one wants to reinstate their stay before the completion of 12 months then ARC should be obtained. However, if the order was issued as a result of any kind of misrepresentation, one cannot return to the country for 5 years.
- There is one essential factor: if CBSA paid for the individual’s removal, they must repay that amount.
Shifting on to our most significant removal order, the deportation order.
- The recipient is permanently barred from returning to Canada and cannot return unless applying for an ARC.
- If the CBSA paid for your removal from Canada, you must repay that amount before you can return.
A person who is the subject of a removal order may be able to request a stay of removal or appeal the decision. It’s crucial to remember that disobeying a removal order may have serious repercussions, including a temporary ban from entering Canada and possible criminal prosecution.
Now that we are aware of and learned about the removal orders, to summarize, there are 3 orders, departure, exclusion, and deportation. I hope no one ever has to face such a situation. Although we have learned a lot today and if ever needed, we know about these. Wish to see you all later. See you all soon with something new……
