What if I am facing a removal order in Canada to the United States in 2012?

Many people have heard of being deported from Canada. A deportation order is only one of three different types of removal orders that are carried out by the Canada Border Services Agency. 

The three types are:

1. A departure order, where you need to leave Canada within 30 days of a specific date. If you do not leave Canada within 30 days of this specific date, your departure order turns into a deportation order.
2. An exclusion order, where you are removed from and barred from re-entering Canada for a year without special written permission obtained from the Canada Border Services Agency.
3. The deportation order, where you are removed from Canada and barred from every re-entering Canada.

There are many reasons you can be issued a removal order, usually for breaching the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. The type of removal order you would be facing depends on the seriousness of your offence.

What can I do if I am facing a removal order?

If you are facing an removal order, you could make a claim for refugee protection if you have a good reason to. This would delay the removal order until the claim is decided.

You may also be eligible to appeal your removal order if you are a permanent resident or a protected person in Canada. There are specific requirements as to who can appeal a removal order and who can not.
