We’re excited to offer opportunities for in-person learning and networking in a limited number of hub cities.

Canadian immigration and refugee law’s development over the last year has been largely impacted by two P words – a Pandemic that does not seem to want to go away, and Portals that appear here to stay.

Between today’s reality and tomorrow’s expectations, we gather (hopefully for the last time virtually) to bring together talented Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Lawyers, Public Servants and Scholars to share their knowledge, practice tips, and developments in our everchanging field of law.

How we emerge from the pandemic will depend on how we prepare today – join the CBA National Immigration Section in this annual gathering of our Section’s best and brightest and enter the Portal to Tomorrow.

We are excited to announce that we will be offering options for in-person learning and networking as the last two webinars of each day will be broadcasted from a hub city. Attend the afternoon sessions on June 3 in Vancouver, on June 10 in Toronto and June 17 in Montreal and seize the opportunity to connect and engage with your peers in person. Space is limited, so register now to save your seat.
