Immigration Pro-bono Clinic (Virtual)



November 27, 2020

    3:00 PM – 5:00 pm (PT)

Get A Free Consultation on 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. This is why immigration pro-bono clinics are such an ideal opportunity. They bring together those who need help with those who want to provide support. A total of 12 Clients will be accepted for a 30-minute consultation regarding any immigration topic. 

Registration Process

1. Submit the registration form if you want to be one of the 12 clients who would be interacting with immigration experts in this Virtual Pro-Bono Clinic.

2. If accepted, an email will be sent to you with the time of your consultation and details of your virtual meeting. Before the consultation, you need to sign a Consultation Agreement between a client and the Regulated Immigration Consultant. The goal of the clinic is to provide you with legal advice, not representation. Each person/family will only have 30 minutes to interact with the Regulated Immigration Consultant.

Please note: The upcoming Pro-Bono clinic will be conducted through Zoom meetings and accepted clients will get the link after they submit their registration. The goal of the clinic is to provide you with legal advice, not representation. Each person or family will be limited to 30 minutes with the Regulated Immigration Consultant.
