New coverage for PRRA hearing preparation and attendance

Published: December 4, 2019

Following Bill C‑97 amendments to the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act that now require mandatory hearings in some pre‑removal risk assessments, LAO will now cover all clients with a PRRA certificate who are scheduled for a PRRA hearing.

Coverage for six hours of preparation plus hearing attendance time will be added to the initial 10‑hour PRRA certificate.
