Get Your Decision

The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada – Refugee Protection Division (IRB-RPD) decides if you can have refugee protection in Canada.

At the end of your refugee hearing, the Member may:

  • Tell you if they accept or reject your refugee claim.
  • Tell you that they will send their decision in the mail. This does not mean they are more likely to reject your claim. You will get your decision in a few weeks or months.
  • Give you extra time to send the Member more information before they make their decision.
