In the latter stages of 2015 and in the early part of January 2016, many of our clients have been contacted by the Canada Border Services Agency in Calgary with Pre Removal Risk Assessment (PRRA) notifications. PRRA Notification is the first step in the removal/deportation process. If a PRRA eligible individual does not make a PRRA application then, subject to a few exemptions, they may be removal ready. If you have been contacted for a notification and do not attend for an interview, the CBSA is authorized to issue a warrant for your arrest and can arrest you. Therefore, if you have received a notification and are confused as to the process and how the PRRA is intertwined with other immigration processes, we highly recommend you contact our office so we can provide you guidance regarding this very important issue.
