A previous post commented on the sharp drop in refugee claims at the border due to the Safe Third Country Agreement (and referenced some critics).
Another article (from the Globe and Mail) indicated that Vancouver has the lowest acceptance rate among the various IRB centers (Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto, Montreal being the main ones - actually Calgary is now part of the Western Region).
The link is here.
The article also lists an interesting year by year comparison of acceptance rates, showing Calgary and Vancouver having significantly lower acceptance rates than other regions:
Montreal 44 %
So what does this mean? It's concerning that different regions may be producing different results for similar claims/same source countries. It's important that any judicial type proceeding have a degree of consistency.
