Security Certificates: Protecting Canada’s Security by Jeopardizing Basic Rights?
The introduction to the workshop provided basic information about AI's activities in the area of refugee protection and current campaigns. Michael provided an overview of Canadian refugee protection system and current security certificate process, stimulating a very active discussion on the issues.
Approximately 40 people attended the workshop, and most of them signed AI's petition to speed up implementation of the Refugee Appeal Division for substantive review of negative refugee determination decisions.
I am attaching handouts that were circulated during the workshop.
