Library of Parliament Legislative Summary of Immigration and Refugee Protection Amendment Bill

The Library of Parliament recently published its Legislative Summary of Bill C-43: An Act to Amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act:
"Bill C-43 focuses on the inadmissibility-related provisions of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA), which determine who may not enter or remain in Canada. Background information provided by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) suggests that the legislation is the outcome of an inter-departmental review of IRPA’s inadmissibility and other related provisions."

"Specifically, Bill C-43 makes several changes related to:
  • evaluating inadmissibility;
  • the consequences of being found inadmissible on certain grounds and of having an inadmissible family member; and
  • granting relief from inadmissibility."
"In addition, it gives the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness the power to prevent an individual from obtaining or renewing temporary resident status."

"Finally, the bill introduces two other changes:
  • it provides for new regulatory authorities for immigration applications; and
  • it creates a formal procedure for the renunciation of permanent resident status."
It is possible to follow the progress of the bill on the LEGISinfo website.
