A collection of laws and regulations that govern the visa and immigration process to Canada. The most important elements of the immigration law include the following:
- Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA)
- Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations
- Citizenship Act
- Citizenship Regulations
