Canada's Dysfunctional Refugee Determination System

Printer-friendly version

Although many assume that Canada has one of the best asylum systems in the world, no country emulates Canadian policy. The explanation for this is that, while striving to protect those who are fleeing persecution, other countries also strongly emphasize deterring abuse and the control of illegal immigration. The Canadian system, as currently structured, does not accomplish these objectives and is therefore out of step with an emerging harmonization of asylum determination policies and practices in the developed world.
