Significant Changes to Refugee Determination in Canada

    The Protecting Canada’s Immigration System Act (PCISA), Bill C-31 became law on June 28, 2012. Some parts of the new Act came into force immediately, and other parts of the Act will come into force later this year; most likely in mid-December.

    Amnesty International believes that PCISA falls far short of Canada’s international human rights and refugee protection obligations and will result in serious violations of the rights of refugees and migrants.
