In a recent case before the Federal court of Canada, it was revealed that Immigration Citizenship and Refugee Canada had introduced in 2018 a new system to decide batches of applications to overcome the increasing backlog problem. This system flags concerns on files and deal with bulks of files in an expedite fashion. Since the application of this system, “Chinook”, refusal rates increased dramatically (more than 55% in some countries) and reasons on templated refusal letters seemed irrational. Lawyers challenge the legality of Chinook based on the requirement for decision-makers to review each application, the fact that the introduction of Chinook was not publicly announced, and failure to issue detailed reports on the degree of Chinook involvement in the procedure of rendering a decision.
