We have obtained through an Access to Information and Privacy Act request data showing the Canada Border Services Agency’s removal statistics for people in British Columbia from 2003 – 2012 (2012 is partial).  I have reproduced below two pages of the data.  We have also obtained a chart showing Removal Orders from British Columbia by Country of Birth by Year, which I have not published.  If you wish to see it please contact me and I will send it to you by e-mail.

As the chart below demonstrates, removals from British Columbia has increased under the Conservatives.  Interestingly, it peaked in 2008 and 2009, before begin to decline.

There is a lot of interesting information contained in the data below, including tables showing:

  • Removal Orders by Type;
  • Removal Orders by Refugee Claimant vs. Non Refugee Claimant;
  • Removal Orders by Status in Canada;
  • Removal Orders by Inadmissibility Ground;
  • Removal Orders by Gender; and
  • Removal Orders by Age.  

Please note that the Tables below are a copy of an official work by the Government of Canada which was obtained through an Access to Information and Privacy Act Request, and to my knowledge is not otherwise publicly available.  While I believe that the data is still current, I cannot be assured of this.  The reproduction of this document has not occurred with the affiliation of the Government of Canada, nor with the endorsement of the Government of Canada.
