COVID-19 Expanded detention review hearing representation services

Published: March 25, 2020

In recognition of the high risk that detained clients may face from the COVID-19 pandemic, our refugee law offices are giving priority to legal services for clients in immigration detention.

Staff counsel in Toronto and Hamilton are available to provide detention review hearing representation to clients in immigration detention in central, southern or northern Ontario (including the Greater Toronto Area, Lindsay, Kitchener-Waterloo, Hamilton, Niagara, London, Windsor and Sudbury).

Eligible clients who prefer to retain a panel lawyer may still apply for, and will be issued a legal aid certificate.

To refer a client for representation, please contact RLO Toronto manager Alyssa Manning at or (416) 977-8111, ext. 7121.
