Register for information sessions on changes to Refugee and Immigration services

Posted on: Friday, August 24, 2012

Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) is taking steps to modernize how it delivers refugee and immigration services. These measures, which take effect Sept. 6, 2012, will help LAO balance increasing client demand with LAO’s own financial obligations to operate within its means.

To help you understand the details of these changes, we are offering live, web-based information sessions for Immigration and Refugee lawyers and their staff.

These sessions will include:

  • Information on the key initiatives
  • Explanation of the changes to LAO’s refugee and immigration legal aid services
  • An opportunity to have your process questions answered by LAO’s in-house experts

Please note these information sessions are currently available in English only. Sessions in French are available on request.
