Abstract

It is too early to provide any definitive judgement on the success of the new legislation concerning refugee daimants made within Canada or at our border. After aIl, the legislation has only been in effect for five months. But it is not too early to take a preliminary reading. Two criteria for judging the system are fairness to genuine refugees and efficiency and cost effectiveness in processing claims. As a by-product of such efficiency, bogus claims will be dramatically discouraged, further, enhancing the efficiency of the system.
