Description of last year's 2011 edition:

Annotated by one of Canada's leading immigration and refugee law practitioners, Butterworths' Canadian Immigration & Refugee Law Practice provides the foundation needed for any immigration and refugee practitioner or consultant – in one portable volume.

Canadian Immigration & Refugee Law Practice, 2011 Edition provides you with an overview of the legislative framework of Canadian immigration and refugee law and guiding principles for the exercise of discretion by the Immigration and Refugee Board. It captures the latest legislative update and case law, with extensive commentary on the implications of the changes.

The book's format was carefully designed for optimum user-friendliness:
  • Expert Commentary: Written by immigration specialist Lorne Waldman, the commentary saves you valuable time by analyzing the legislation for you.
  • Thematically Organized Case Summaries: Each section of the IRPA and key sections of the Regulations and Rules are followed by carefully selected case summaries relevant to that particular section. These concise summaries of case law make it easy for you to identify the cases you need.
  • In-depth Analysis: Cross-references to Lorne Waldman's well-respected service, Butterworths Immigration Law and Practice, 2nd Edition, provides expanded analysis and practice tips in the fast-changing area.
  • Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, Regulations and Rules, Related Legislation and International Trade Agreements: All applicable Acts, regulations and court rules, related legislation and International Trade Agreements are reproduced. Expert insight into their application is provided making it easy to see how they will work in your practice.
  • Unannotated version of the Act: Full-text of the Act is reproduced without commentary or case law, in double-column English and French, making it easy to locate a section of legislation when representing a case.
New legislation in this edition includes:
  • Balanced Refugee Reform Act which received Royal Assent on June 29, 2010. By this new legislation, the IRB will implement two new divisions: a new Refugee Protection Division and a new Refugee Appeal Division, as well as various new processes in support of these new divisions. What all this means is that immigration and refugee law practitioners and consultants must prepare themselves for yet another round of procedural changes at the IRB.
The legislation reproduced in this text is current to Canada Gazette Part I vol. 144:46 (November 13, 2010) and Canada Gazette Part II vol. 144:23 (November 10, 2010). Legislation pending at the time of printing is reproduced in shaded text.
