Online Resources

Here. you can access a variety of online educational resources across our website for information and further details about the Canadian law, refugee rights, and humanitarian immigration.

Staff members at our legal clinics constantly work on gathering, compiling and popularizing legal information its users need to know and gain access to for humanitarian immigration purposes.

All our educational resources will gradually be released and made available in this section. Please get in touch with us at the clinics if you cannot find the answer to your specific questions here or if you need assistance.

Many thanks to Kelsey, her fellow McGill law student Robyn McDougal as well as refugee and immigration lawyer Daniela Dobrota.
