The READY Tour, which is now replicated throughout Canada, provides refugee claimants with a walk-through of the Immigration Refugee Board Hearing Room, a description of the proceedings and an opportunity to ask questions of an IRB member.

The tours are the result of a collaboration of MAP members: the UNHCR, Immigration & Refugee Board and Kinbrace. The partnership was initiated and tours began in 2009 and over 100 tours have taken place in their inception – helping over 2,500 refugee claimants. Tours are also available for claimants who will appear before the Refugee Appeal Division (RAD).
