Removing Flags at the Port of Entry

Meurrens LawJudicial Reviews

I was recently asked where one can learn how to request that an “enforcement flag” against them be removed so that an individual does not have to go to a secondary examination every time they enter Canada.

This is actually a question that comes up rather frequently, so for all those who are interested, here is the relevant section from the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada Manual:

Flag Removals (2)

There are other ways to remove enforcement flags where the procedure outlined above is not working.
