Refugee resources on LawFacts recently updated

Friday, January 25, 2013

The refugee resources on Legal Aid Ontario (LAO)'s LawFacts website have recently been improved and are now available in a user-friendly format complete with an interactive glossary. The updated material outlines what is required to make a refugee claim, important deadlines to keep in mind, and helpful resources to get the process started.

LawFacts is LAO's free online legal information resource for individuals with questions about both refugee and criminal law in Ontario. In December 2012, LAO published public legal information on the refugee law process where making a claim for refugee protection in Canada changed as a result of amendments to the refugee law system.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the refugee resources on LawFacts, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions.
