What Are Removal Orders in Canada?

A removal order is issued when someone is convicted of breaching the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act in Canada. If you have committed a crime or are in Canada fraudulently, you could be issued a removal order.

Types of Removal Orders From Canada

The Canada Border Services Agency is responsible for carrying out removal orders. There are three different types of removal orders in Canada: deportation orders, departure orders, and exclusion orders.

Deportation Orders

A deportation order is issued for very serious offenses or issued for people who have no status in Canada – for example, a person whose refugee claim has failed. When a deportation order is issued, the person in question must be deported from Canada by a specified date never to return to Canada again…unless he or she gets special permission (Authorization to Return to Canada)

Exclusion Orders

For an exclusion order, the person must leave Canada and cannot return to Canada for one year. If they need to return to Canada before one year is up, they have to apply for special permission from the Canada Border Services Agency.

Departure Orders

A departure order requires that you leave Canada within 30 days, confirming your departure with the CBSA on exit from the country. If you do not leave Canada within the 30 days, in nearly all cases the departure order will become a deportation order.

Can I Stop or Delay a Deportation Order?

You may be eligible to appeal a removal order if you are a permanent resident in Canada or a protected person. People cannot appeal a removal order if they have immigrated fraudulently, have been involved in organized crimes, have been convicted of a serious crime and sentenced to more than two years, are a security threat to Canada and Canadians or have violated international or human rights in any way.

Customer Reviews

I could not have asked for more! The VisaPlace team are extremely professional, they know their stuff. They gave me great information, prepared my work visa application and then prepared me for the submission process. I was successful. Got my visa. 5 stars! I would give them 6 if I could.

Tim Willisin the last week

This is not an exaggeration!!! I was truly impressed with the way VisaPlace consultants handled my case. The consultants- Emily, Lauren, Takunda and Lisa, took their time to explain to me in great deal how they were going to approach my case and how they would handle setbacks, if any. Their professionalism and knowledge of the law were superb. The minor setback that came up was quickly addressed by the team. The team constantly kept me updated on the progress/status of my application; they quickly responded to my questions/concerns. They had predicated my permanent residency to be processed within 6 -12, and Indeed it was processed and completed within 6 months. Based on my personal experience, Emily and Lauren's team are the best! They deserve 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

VisaPlace helped me sponsor my husband to become a Permanent Resident of Canada. They were extremely professional. Every step along the way was explained fully and expertly taken care of. The staff responded immediately to any questions and always handled our concerns fully, taking as much time as we needed to understand where we were at in the immigration process and what to expect next. I would recommend VisaPlace with no hesitation at all. I'm sure if we had tried to navigate the immigration process ourselves, it would have been much harder.
