IRCC News: Canada ends the Designated Country of Origin practice

Canada removes all countries from the designated country of origin list:

On May 17, 2019, Canada removed all countries from the Designated Country of Origin (DCO) list, which effectively suspends the DCO policy, introduced in 2012, until it can be repealed through future legislative changes. Therefore, refugee claimants from the 42 countries on the DCO list were previously subject to a 6-month bar on work permits, a bar on appeals at the Refugee Appeals Division (RAD), limited access to the Interim Federal Health Program and a 36-month bar on the Pre-Removal Risk Assessment.
