Immigration Law Update


February 2023

The Immigration Law Section & Overseas and Refugee Lawyers Groups had a strong start this year, having collectively hosted 10 Section meetings and events between October and December 2022! We welcomed over 300 of our Section members from across BC to share knowledge and build connections.

Looking ahead to the line-up of 2023 meetings and events, we are excited to add to our regular meeting schedule a return of a full-day of in-person learning and networking at our Annual Immigration Law Conference! The Conference Planning Committee has created an excellent program that will feature a panel of experts to discuss topics ranging from non-immigration issues for immigration lawyers, mastering Family Class Permanent Residence applications, to a review of notable cases.

Space is limited, so register today:

Immigration Law Conference | March 3, 2023 | Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront, Vancouver

A feature of the conference that we are proud to offer again this year is the opportunity for early career lawyers to apply for one of six bursaries, valued at $500 each, to attend the upcoming National CBA Immigration Conference from June 1 to 3, in Ottawa, Ontario. Bursaries are awarded as a reimbursement to successful applicants who attend both the BC and National Immigration Conferences.

More information about the bursary and application process can be found here.
