What is IRPA? What is IRPR?

IRPA stands for the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. It refers to an Act of the Canadian Parliament that builds the foundation for the immigration policies, processes, and procedures. It also defines matters such as immigration offences, temporary resident to Canada, permanent residency, refugee claims, inadmissibility to Canada and more. In our website, we may refer to the provisions of IRPA by the letter A. For example, A24 means section 24 of IRPA.

IRPR stands for the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations. Under IRPA the Minister of IRCC has the authority to develop certain rules to expand on IRPA. Such rules further offer details about the immigration process in Canada. For example, the location you may apply for a Work Permit, or who may study in Canada without a study permit, and so on. In our website, we may refer to the provisions of IRPR by the letter R. For example, R24 means section 24 of IRPR.
