The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) is the tribunal responsible for making decisions on who needs refugee protection, decisions about detention, and hears immigration appeals. Refugee claimants present their cases to the IRB. Claimants with a mental illness, however, may have unique difficulties in presenting their cases to the IRB. How does the IRB process the cases of claimants who may have mental health concerns?

In this Refugee Mental Health Project webinar, Preeti Adhopia, Board Member of the Immigration & Refugee Board of Canada, discusses the IRB’s efforts to give due consideration to refugee claimants’ individual situations when it comes to mental illness. She will discuss policy guidelines as they relate to claimants with mental health concerns and accommodations used in actual cases.

This webinar is hosted by the Refugee Mental Health Project.
