Criminality and Removals for Permanent Residents - Life After Pham
Citizenship and Immigration Law | 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Ensure you are up to date with recent developments to the law relating to permanent residents enmeshed in the criminal justice system.  The recent Supreme Court of Canada decision in R. v. Pham (Pham) and the enactment of Bill C-43 (Faster Removal of Foreign Criminals Act) have impacted sentencing of permanent residents convicted of crimes.  Subsequent decisions of  Courts of Appeal across the country have limited the ability of immigrants to argue for more lenient sentences to preserve their appeal rights to the IAD and make removal more likely.

Whether you are an immigration or criminal lawyer, join our expert faculty for an in-depth look at the latest need-to-know issues in this area, including:

  • How has Pham impacted sentencing in Canada?
    • How have lower courts been applying Pham?
  • Representing immigrants in the new regime: the criminal lawyer’s perspective
  • IAD practice: what has changed?
  • Remedies for criminal inadmissibility in the new environment
