What You Missed Over the Summer: Immigration Law Updates 

Sep. 12, 2018
Toronto Online

OBA Citizenship & Immigration Law PROGRAM | 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

The Canadian government’s expansion of the biometrics program took effect on July 31, 2018. Nationals from a number of countries are already required to provide biometrics (fingerprints and a photo) if they are applying for a visitor visa, a work or study permit, or permanent residence, even at a port of entry, and others will have to by the end of the year.  This is but one change in what has been a busy summer on the immigration front. Join us to learn what you missed over the summer as our experts share their insights on:

  • Expansion of the biometrics program
  • Updates to the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program
  • Changes to the detention review process
  • Proposed changes to the refugee determination process, including the latest on irregular border crossings

Our speakers will answer your most pressing questions on these key immigration issues in an expanded Q&A period at the end of the program.
