“Clear and straight-forward…”

Available now across Canada, the completely revised Refugee Hearing Preparation: A Guide for Refugee Claimants is a practical resource available in 6 regions and 10 languages that helps refugee claimants and service providers:

  • learn key refugee legal issues
  • track individual refugee claims on the right timeline
  • learn strategies to prepare for the refugee hearing
  • complete the hearing preparation checklist
  • get answers to frequently asked questions
  • find legal and community resources in Metro Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Winnipeg, Greater Toronto Area, and Montreal.

“This Guide not only helps refugee claimants prepare for their hearings, it reassures them of their rights.”
Furio De Angelis, UNHCR Representative in Canada

“The Guide is clear and straight-forward for refugee claimants and support workers. It will also assist refugee lawyers to explain the inexplicable to their clients.”
Peter Showler, former Director, The Refugee Forum, University of Ottawa; former Chairperson, Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada

“I went through the Guide again and again before my refugee hearing.  The step-by-step instructions, timeline, and recommendations were so useful for me.  It’s friendly and relieved my stress.”
Ioann, Convention Refugee in Canada
