Invisible Citizens : Canadian Children in Immigration Detention

Report by International Human Rights Program of the University of Toronto
23 février 2017

The International Human Rights Program of the University of Toronto has just released a new report on the detention of children in Canada, urging alternatives to detaining children and family separation.

The 57-page report, “Invisible Citizens : Canadian Children in Immigration Detention”, is a follow-up to the IHRP’s September 2016 report on non-Canadian children in immigration detention, “No Life for a Child : A Roadmap to End Immigration Detention of Children and Family Separation”. The new report reiterates that families in detention should be released outright or given access to community-based alternatives to detention, such as reporting obligations, financial deposits and guarantors.
