Filing an appeal
To launch an appeal, you must file a notice of appeal to the RAD no later than 15 days* after the day on which you received the written reasons for the RPD decision. You must provide three copies of your notice of appeal to the RAD Registry in the regional office that sent you your RPD decision.

You can deliver, mail or fax your notice of appeal to the IRB regional office that sent the original refugee decision.

Timeline:

  • no more than 15 days after the day on which you received the written reasons for the RPD decision, you must file your notice of appeal.
  • no more than 30 days after the day on which you received the written reasons for the RPD decision, you must file your appellant’s record.
  • Unless a hearing is ordered, the RAD will wait 15 days before making a decision on your appeal.
  • The Minister may decide to intervene and submit documentary evidence at any time before the RAD makes a final decision on the appeal.
  • If the Minister decides to intervene and to provide submissions or evidence to you, the RAD will wait 15 days for you to reply to the Minister and the RAD.
  • Once you have replied to the Minister and the RAD, or if 15 days have passed and you have not replied, the RAD will make a decision on your appeal.
