Legal Advice for Refugee Sponsors - Oakville

Halton Community Legal Services is hosting free workshops to refugee sponsors, groups and organizations supporting refugees.

Come and learn how to improve your advocacy skills to assist refugees in their resettlement.

The workshops will also explore how to overcome a lack of Canadian experience in job seeking and what is available if financial independence is not established by the end of the sponsorships.

The legal clinic Mental Health Community Support Worker will lead a session on strategies to support refugees to meet the demands of settlement when they are dealing with the trauma of their recent experiences and are worried about family reunification.

Representatives from the Halton Newcomer Strategy will also be present to share resources.

Dates: Sept. 15, 22, 29 & Oct. 6, 2016
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
