Intererference and breach of privacy with refugee claimants???

April 2014

If this is true it is deeply disturbing. Perhaps others can add information?

This week I was informed by immigration lawyers and others that Canada Border Service Agents routinely contact Ontario Works. They call and inquire as to which refugees who have failed an Immigration and Refugee Board hearing are still receiving Ontario Works benefits. They then attempt to have these benefits ended.

Is this true? If it is true is it legal? Does it contravene privacy and other legal statutes?

If anyone cane can shed any light on this matter please write us.
