Description based on print version record.


Established under Part I of the Inquiries Act, the Arar Inquiry was set up on the recommendation of the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to investigate and report on the actions of Canadian officials in relation to Maher Arar. The Factual Inquiry process was thorough and comprehensive, and examined all the Canadian information relevant to the mandate. Over 70 government officials were called as witnesses, and the government produced approximately 21,500 documents, of which some 6,500 were entered as exhibits. This Report is based primarily on the evidence of Canadian officials. The governments of the United States, Jordan and Syria declined an invitation to give evidence or otherwise participate in the hearings.
