Removal Order Appeal Process: Can a removal order be appealed?

If you are facing a removal order appeal process here are some of our thoughts and tips on addressing it. It all depends on the reasons why you were asked to leave Canada as well as your current status in Canada along with any previous applications you may have submitted to Citizenship and Immigration Canada.

Depending on these factors, you might be able to request that your removal order appeal is deferred temporarily. Should this request be denied, you may ask the Federal Court of Canada to have your removal date canceled temporarily (called Motion for a Stay).

If you were told to leave Canada within a few weeks and have important reasons to want to remain in Canada, for example, family or business in Canada, medical condition or fear of returning to your home country, you need to contact an immigration lawyer as soon as possible to determine the options available to you and understand the consequences of leaving Canada.
