vacation order

In Immigration Law, Refugee Law

The Refugee Protection Division (RPD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board makes a vacation order if it decides that a protected person got that status by “misrepresentation”. This means that they said something that was not true or accurate, or they left out information that they were required to give. This applies only if the person would not have gotten protected status if they’d given the correct or missing information. If Canada Border Services Agency applies to the RPD for a vacation order, the protected person has the right to a hearing.

A vacation order can lead to a protected person being ordered to leave Canada.
