ONLINE MEETING: The Perils of Criminal Charges and Convictions for Immigration Status in Canada - Legal Developments and Practice Points
This meeting is being hosted by the Criminal Justice - Vancouver Section. 

Speaker(s): Erica Olmstead, Partner, Edlemann & Co.
Veen Aldosky, Defence Counsel
Time: Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at 6:00pm - 7:00pm (PT)
CPD Hours: 1.00 hour

Join us for an interesting and informative discussion about the nexus between criminal and immigration law. The panelists bring a great deal of experience and insight in both practice areas. They will speak about the law as it relates to immigration consequences flowing criminal convictions, and the potential risk of deportation related to non-convictions in light of the recent Federal Court of Appeal decision in Mason. The session will provide helpful practice tips for advocating for an accused with precarious status in Canada, from opening a file to sentencing.
