For three days in April 2006, the People's Commission on Immigration Security Measures held Public Hearings at a community centre in Montreal's Little Burgundy neighbourhood. The first popular commission of inquiry on immigration issues to take place in Quebec, its purpose was to investigate the implications of security-related measures currently imposed on international migrants in the name of national security. The Commission, though based in Montreal, drew on support from Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Kingston, Sherbrooke, Halifax and elsewhere in Canada. The Commission investigated and reported on the actions of Canadian government bodies in relation to Immigration and Refugee Protection Act security measures (IRPA), examining the equality of treatment of non-citizens, security certificates and similar procedures, detention and deportation (including deportation to torture). Based on its findings, the Commission has made recommendations for appropriate legal or popular action against those responsible for abuses and for changes to the current legal and procedural framework. The public launch of the People's Commision Final Report took place on February 1, 2007 at the Center Communautaire Musulman de Montreal.

The People's Commission is a project of the Coalition for Justice for Adil Charkaoui (www.adilinfo.org), QPIRG-Concordia(www.qpirgconcordia.org), and Solidarity Across Borders (www.solidarityacrossborders.org).
