Administrative deferral of removals (ADR) for Iranians
Due to the dreadful situation that Iran is experiencing, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) decided to put on hold removal orders for Iranians. A removal order means you must leave Canada. However, several reasons can prevent a removal order from being enforced expeditiously, one of them is the administrative deferral of removal (ADR).
According to the CBSA, the administrative deferral of removal is meant to be a temporary measure when immediate action is needed to temporarily suspend removals in situations of humanitarian crisis.
It is important to mention that after four months, the petitions of the “women, life, freedom,” movement have not brought the liberty demanded in Iran. Moreover, authorities in the country keep ruthlessly cracking down on widespread opposition with excessive and lethal force.

About removal orders
Sometimes people who are inside Canada receive a removal order. A removal order means you must leave Canada, said our CEO and RCIC-IRB, Al Parsai. He continues, “removal orders could affect any foreign national or permanent resident. In other words, no nationality is exempt from removal orders. However, a temporary measure could put the removal of some nationalities on hold.”

About the administrative deferral of removal
The ADR is meant to be a temporary measure to delay removal orders in situations of humanitarian crisis. However, once the situation in a country stabilizes the ADR is lifted and the CBSA resumes removals for individuals who have a removal order in effect.
An individual who is not allowed into Canada on grounds of criminality, serious criminality, international or human rights violations, organized crime, or security can still be removed despite the ADR.CBSA
