Answer

All Immigration and Refugee Board (IRB) offices are closed. You can’t deliver your RAD notice of appeal by hand but you can send the signed original and two copies by courier or by fax. Keep a copy for yourself.

If the deadline to file your notice of appeal is on or after January 1, 2020, the RAD has extended the deadline. Your deadline is not extended if your appeal to the RAD was dismissed before March 15, 2020. The IRB has not yet given a date when it will re-open.  When the IRB does re-open, you will have 30 days from that date to file your notice of appeal to the RAD. Check the IRB website for information about when the IRB re-opens.
