With the passage of Bill C-31, "Protecting Canada's Immigration System Act", in December 2012, significant changes to Canada's refugee determination procedure came into effect. This soft-bound publication, authored by refugee law experts Jacqueline Swaisland and Lorne Waldman, provides a plain language explanation of the revised procedure.
Jacqueline Swaisland is an associate at Waldman & Associates in Toronto and a part-time professor at the University of Ottawa where she co-teaches a course on immigration and refugee law. In 2008, she was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to pursue graduate work at Harvard University where she received an LL.M. in International Human Rights and Comparative Constitutional Law. Ms. Swaisland has acted as counsel in cases at all levels of court, including five times as co-counsel before the Supreme Court of Canada on immigration-related matters. She has also presented at several conferences on international and refugee law topics and acted as a guest lecturer at Queen's Faculty of Law.
Lorne Waldman, of Waldman & Associates, has practiced immigration and refugee law exclusively since 1979 and appears before the Refugee Protection Division, the Federal Court and the Supreme Court of Canada. Mr. Waldman has appeared before the Senate and the House of Commons as a witness on immigration issues and is a frequent speaker at C.B.A. and L.S.U.C. seminars. He is also the author of Canadian Immigration and Refugee Law Practice and The Definition of Convention Refugee, both published by Butterworths®.
