In recent months, Canada has seen an increase in refugee claimants, while resources and know-how to support these newcomers remains in short supply. Front-line workers across the country can benefit from the expertise of those who have been working with claimants for many years.
Participants at this webinar will learn about:
- The refugee determination process, including timelines and delays
- Applying for a work permit
- Applying for Permanent Residence
- Provincial entitlements and services for refugee claimants
This webinar will last 90 minutes, and is part of the Law Foundation of Ontario-sponsored “Improving access to Justice” series, designed to reinforce the capacity of front-line workers to support refugees and vulnerable migrants in accessing legal information.
Presenters Claire Roque, Jenn McIntyre and Anthony Navaneelan will provide practical information, guiding front-line workers through the procedures that are part of working with refugee claimants on a daily basis. The presentation will be followed by a thirty minute question-and-answer session during which participants can have their questions answered by the presenters.
