Recruitment campaign for Immigration Appeal Division and Refugee Appeal Division members

​The Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) is seeking candidates for full-time Governor in Council (GIC) appointed decision-makers (“members”) for the Immigration Appeal Division and Refugee Appeal Division in Montréal, Ottawa, Toronto, Calgary, and Vancouver. ​

GIC appointed members at the IRB work as independent decision-makers, conducting proceedings fairly, efficiently and in accordance with the law. By making timely and well-informed decisions on refugee and immigration-related appeals, members play a vital role in upholding the integrity of Canada's immigration and refugee determination system.

Interested candidates are invited to apply online to become a Member at the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada before the closing date. For additional information, please consult the following resources:

The IRB is committed to fostering an inclusive organizational culture, with a workforce that reflects Canada's diversity. All candidates who believe they are qualified are encouraged to apply. This includes members of the four Employment Equity groups (women, Indigenous peoples, visible minorities/racialized persons, and persons with disabilities), as well as other equity seeking groups who may experience barriers based on factors that include race, ethnicity, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability, religion or any other prohibited ground of discrimination under the Canadian Human Rights Act. Preference may be given to applicants who self-identify as members of one or more of the four Employment Equity groups or other communities as outlined above.

Some member positions require bilingual proficiency. As such, bilingual proficiency may be considered in assessing applicants. Applicants are therefore encouraged to clearly indicate their second official language proficiency.
