Supporting Youth Without Immigration Status

Justice For Children and Youth (JFCY) legal clinic’s Childhood Arrivals Support & Advocacy (CASA) program will be providing a webinar on being aware and inclusive of students with precarious or no immigration status.

Young people brought to Canada as children and are living without immigration status can face significant uncertainty in their lives. In this session, teachers will learn about the barriers facing these young people as well as how to support them. Teachers will also receive a brief overview of immigration law in Canada and information about legal services and resources available for young people.

CASA provides outreach, legal representation, and trusted intermediary supports for young people who have arrived in Canada as children and are living here without immigration status. JFCY provides legal representation and advice for youth across Ontario and can help a young person find a local lawyer.
