New translation disbursement for refugee certificates

Friday, May 29, 2015

Starting June 1, 2015, lawyers with Refugee Protection Division (RPD) certificates can bill through Legal Aid Online up to 3,500 words for all translated documents.

This new disbursement is available to all RPD certificates (subject to the amount already billed) and for those issued for humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

If the translation is more than 3,500 words or for other types of refugee and immigration certificates, lawyers may submit a request for additional translation disbursements through Legal Aid Online, using the Disbursement Authorization Translations Form.
