Member, Refugee Protection Division - Inventory *Amended Essential Qualifications

Government Website March 24, 2017

The Refugee Protection Division (RPD) is one of four divisions within Canada's largest independent administrative tribunal, the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB). Members of the RPD are hired as public servants within the larger public service and enjoy the same terms and conditions of work. However, they are independent decision makers at an independent administrative tribunal operating at arm's length from government.

The amendments made to the essential qualifications were made effective on March 24, 2017.
