CCR webinar: Solutions for separated families – Excluded family members: understanding the problem, finding solutions

February 16, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

16 February and 9 March: CCR webinar series on solutions for separated families

Excluded family members: understanding the problem, finding solutions (Part 1 of 2)

This webinar will provide practical information about Excluded Family Member cases. Section 117(9)(d) of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (the “Excluded Family Member” provision) imposes a lifelong sponsorship ban on family members who were not declared or examined at the time of the sponsor’s immigration to Canada. The provision affects many vulnerable newcomers, including many refugees, preventing them from reuniting with spouses, partners or children.

Attend this webinar to learn about R.117(9)(d) and the recourses available. It is designed for front-line workers and anyone else who is supporting or may in the future need to support someone affected by R. 117(9)(d).
Cette session aura lieu en anglais, mais les participants peuvent poser leurs questions en français.

Date: 16 February 2017, 2-3 pm (Eastern time)

Panelists:

  • Jamie Liew, University of Ottawa
  • Jennifer Stone, Neighbourhood Legal Services
  • Nir Gepner, Willowdale Community Legal Services
