We have recently updated Clicklaw’s common question entitled “We want to start a refugee claim in Canada” to include two new resources from our contributor Legal Services Society. In addition, it also includes a new version of Refugee Hearing Preparation: A Guide for Refugee Claimants, from Kinbrace Community Society.
Legal Services Society published the new publications shortly after changes to Canada’s asylum system came into effect on December 15th last year.
- Refugee Claim Flow Chart explains the process involved and outlines the steps for refugee claimants.
- Need Help with Your Refugee Claim? outlines legal aid coverage for refugees and LSS’ immigration phone service in a bilingual infocard.
More resources on the subject are available on Clicklaw under the subtopic “refugees“. Another useful resource is the page “I want to claim refugee status in Canada” in the Legal Help for British Columbians Clicklaw wikibook.
