Immigration, Women and Violence: Making a Claim on Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds
Women who don’t have legal immigration status in Canada may have a close relationship with a child in Canada; and/or they are affected by violence, either in Canada or in their country of origin. These situations make an application for permanent residence based on Humanitarian and Compassionate (H&C) grounds an option. This webinar will discuss the basic elements of an H&C application, from the perspective of a woman applicant. This is a new webinar in the Family Law Education for Women (FLEW) series, presented by Tamar Witelson, METRAC’s Legal Director, and Roxana Parsa, METRAC’s Program Lawyer.
