Do I have to make a refugee claim at the border or can I claim within Canada?

Claims may be made either at a POE (point of entry) upon arrival in Canada or inland at a designated CIC office. Board Members may draw negative inference where there has been significant delay from the time of the claimant’s arrival in Canada to the time of an inland claim is made.
