Refugee Protection and Border Security: Striking A Balance

Refugee Protection and Border Security: Striking a Balance is a report of the House of Commons Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration, chaired by Joe Fontana. The report was tabled March 2000.
In the summer of 1999, the arrival off the shores of British Columbia of four boats carrying 599 migrants placed a spotlight on Canada's immigration and refugee laws. It was in this context that the Committee decided to undertake this study on the refugee determination system and the security of Canada's borders.
Contains recommendations on:
  • detention
  • initial considerations regarding a refugee claim
  • the refugee hearing
  • other matters related to the refugee determination system
  • issues related to immigration documents
  • targeting people traffickers and smugglers
  • concerns of transportation companies
  • international cooperation
Produced by the House of Commons. Published by Canadian Government Publishing, 2000.
