Topics of Consultation:
Consultations regarding the Family class:
Do you want to bring your relatives to Canada? Do you need legal advice? Would you like to sponsor your husband?
These are just a few examples that you might seek legal advice.
Consultations on Temporary Class:
Are you a student? Are you a foreign worker? Do you need legal advice?

Note- Pro-Bono clinic will be conducted through Zoom meetings and accepted clients will get the link after they select their time slot.
