It can be richly rewarding to help immigrants settle and eventually call Canada home. Providing effective help means keeping abreast of legal requirements, cultural nuances and economic implications for those involved.
Our educational opportunities in the growing field of immigration offer critical skills and the latest information for immigration practitioners, lawyers, paralegals and legal assistants, international student advisors, staff of non-profit organizations, and human resources professionals.
