National

Ready Tours (virtual) with the IRB-RPD

Wherever you are in Canada, register for and join a virtual Ready Tour. Meet a person from the IRB-RPD who will help you learn how to prepare for your hearing, understand what your hearing day will include, and who may attend your refugee hearing.

Mock Hearing Program (virtual)

Wherever you are in Canada, schedule a virtual mock/simulation of your refugee hearing. Be better prepared for your interview with the IRB-RPD. Your mock hearing will help you know what to expect, and to be emotionally and psychologically ready for your hearing.
