Immigration and Refugee Law

The fourth edition of Canadian Immigration and Refugee Law for Legal Professionals presents the complexities of the principles and processes of immigration, refugee, and citizenship law in an approachable, user-friendly format. It uses clear language, multiple examples, process charts, fact scenarios, and legal cases to break down and contextualize the law. This allows readers to clearly understand and apply what they have learned.

Major updates to this edition include a new definition of dependent children, revised Express Entry and economic classes, new rules for citizenship, and up-to-date process descriptions and charts.

To account for the fluid nature of Canada’s immigration, refugee, and citizenship systems, this text references legislation, regulations, and websites that readers can refer to as the law evolves in the future.
