Refugee Law Lab Reporter

The Refugee Law Lab Reporter publishes positive decisions from the Refugee Protection Division of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board.

We publish these decisions because the vast majority of Canadian refugee decisions published elsewhere involve refugee claims that were denied at first instance. The disproportionate publication of refugee decisions that involve negative first instance decisions distorts jurisprudence, prevents lawyers from drawing on positive examples in their arguments, and makes it difficult for scholars to study refugee adjudication.

We obtain decisions through Access to Information and Privacy requests. If you would like to see us publish a specific decision or a particular type of decision, please let us know by filling out this form.
