We share with you a monthly roundup of changes to Clicklaw’s collection. Here is a summary of updates done in October and November 2022.
Kinbrace Refugee Housing and Support
My Refugee Claim (New)
This website helps refugee claimants in Canada learn about the refugee protection process. Topics include getting legal representation, starting a refugee claim, preparing for and attending a refugee hearing, what happens after a hearing, and making a refugee claim in detention.
Ministry of Attorney General
Northern Virtual Counter (Courthouse Services) (New)
Citizens and lawyers with questions that they normally would have to attend a Courthouse counter for, can now click the Teams link and have a virtual session with court staff to ask questions for both Civil and Criminal matters and for both Provincial and Supreme Court. Currently, it is just a pilot and only for the North region. Clients click on the link, and will get the “we’ve let the person know you’re waiting” message that comes up in Teams. Audio only (call in) option is available.
