Get A Free Consultation Regarding Any Immigration Matter:
The immigration process is a complex one, and while Canada is welcoming near-record numbers of immigrants to the country, navigating the process isn’t easy. There are numerous immigration streams one can apply through, as well as requirement differences between national and provincial or territorial programs. A potential immigrant is likely to feel overwhelmed facing these challenges without expert help. Fortunately, immigration practitioners are here to help others be successful in coming to Canada and care about the best opportunities for the individuals involved.

That’s why Pro-Bono clinics are such an ideal opportunity. They bring together those who need help with those who want to provide support.

Note: The upcoming Pro-Bono clinic will be conducted through Zoom meetings and accepted clients will get the link after they submit their registration.
