Detention Review

Author: Mock Webware

Foreign Nationals or Permanent Residents who are arrested and detained by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for any reason, and who are not released subsequently are legally entitled to a detention review. The first review is mandated within 48 hours after being detained. If for any reason the detained person is not ordered released the second detention review is mandated within 7 days and every subsequent detention review is mandated within 30 days, with a few exceptions. A sound legal advice and advocacy may help the detained person secure a release from detention.
