Biography / Administrative history

The Fort McMurray Canada Immigration Centre (CIC) was a responsibility centre and office of record for the acceptance of immigrants and control of immigration irregularities at the field office level. The Fort McMurray CIC was a primary contact in Alberta for new immigrants and for persons wishing to sponsor the immigration of relatives abroad. As was the case with other CICs located in all Canadian cities and larger towns, the Fort McMurray CIC also undertook responsibilities such as the investigation of immigration irregularities and representing the department at formal inquiry hearings involving refused claims, deportations, and exclusions.
