Abstract

This compilation of Canadian appellate level decisions covers the period from 1993 to 2015 and contains two appeals from the RAD of the IRB; a significant number of judicial reviews from the Federal Court; and finally, one case from the Supreme Court of Canada. Decisions were selected if they identified principles of law which are settled and illustrated how those principles were applied to particular situations. Indeed, cases were selected if they set out a legal principle rather than decisions that were simply decided on the particular facts of the refugee claim.
