CCR Webinar: Private Sponsorship Refusals

Participate in this webinar to learn from an experienced lawyer how to understand a refusal of an application by a privately sponsored refugee and what you can do about it.  We will look at the practical steps, including deadlines, filing requirements in Federal Court, obtaining the officer's notes, and the relevant documents needed.  We will also focus on identifying critical issues, and how to assess them. 

This webinar is jointly organized by the Canadian Council for Refugees and the Réseau des Organismes et Groupes de parrainage des réfugiés au Québec (ROGPRAQ).

Cette session aura lieu en anglais, mais les participants peuvent poser leurs questions en français.
