A total of 900 immigration judicial reviews were dismissed by the Federal Court
Updated: Jan 12
The Federal Court of Canada published a report on December 17, 2021, regarding the timing for the issuance of orders dismissing applications for leave and judicial review in IMM proceedings.
The Federal Court dismissed 900 immigration judicial reviews but could not issue the certificates of Order to applicants due to the limited Registry staff. According to the report, it happened between July and December 2021. The report states that the processing backlog for these Certificates of Order will be resolved soon and be sent to parties by the end of March 2022.
In order to ensure that parties are able to confirm the Court's decision online in a timely manner, the Court's decisions are now entered into the docket and are accessible on the Federal website. The docket entry is dated according to the original decision date rather than the date that the online docket was updated.
Despite the completion of this update to the online docket for the entire backlog of 900 IMM files, the Certificate of Order for these files will be sent to parties at a later time with a date of preparation. The processing backlog for these Certificates of Order will then be resolved by the end of March 2022.
