Immigration Law

Immigration Law

By Donald Galloway

This book is a succinct overview of the relevant legal principles, rules, and standards used by courts, tribunals, and government officials in individual Canadian immigration cases.
Professor Galloway defines "immigration law" broadly to include: the law regulating the arrival of individuals as immigrants; the entry of visitors; the process for removal of individuals from the country; and the way in which individuals change their status from within the country, including the process of becoming a citizen.
Finally, the book encompasses refugee law, which is founded on quite distinct principles. Anyone interested in the general shape and sense of Canada's immigration law and policy, in its evolution, and in the issues that will dominate the field in the future, will want to read this book.
