It was intended for social service providers who work with the immigrant community, but is a useful tool for anyone interested in learning more about basic immigration issues. Here are the slides from the event as a downloadable PDF for anyone interested in using them to follow along with the video: Immigration Law 101 Training Slides (NWIRP)

Please note that WDA cannot provide case-specific advice for Canadian law matters. If you have a client who is concerned about the consequences of a U.S. conviction for travel to Canada, it is best to contact a Canadian immigration lawyer (a non-exhaustive list of Canadian lawyers is included in the above advisory).
