The Task Force for Less Complex Claims (TFLCC) was established in 2018 by the Refugee Protection Division (RPD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) as an innovative case management approach to increase productivity and efficiency of decision-making.
The TFLCC is a streamlined case management process for certain country and claim types, which allows for certain claims to be reviewed and decided without holding a hearing, or to proceed with a short hearing if only one or two issues need to be resolved.
Decisions to include a particular country of origin or type of claim under the TFLCC process are based on several assessments, including conditions relating to human rights, political activity, and legal systems.
If there are more complicated questions of credibility or identity, then such cases will proceed to a regular hearing.
Any claim that appears to be manifestly founded upon initial review may be considered for processing without a hearing or with only a short-hearing process. This may include claims from individuals who are members of a religion as well as claims from those who have chosen to be disassociated from a religious denomination or community, or those who hold no religious conviction, including non-believers.
In addition, counsel and claimants have the ability to identify claims they believe should be considered for triage as part of the TFLCC.
Only validated signatures are counted towards the total number of signatures.
