Supported by the expertise of general editors Cathryn Sawicki and Chantal Desloges, Emond’s new Immigration Law Series provides a practical approach to all areas of immigration law.

Family Class Sponsorship in Canadian Immigration Law, the second volume in the series, provides a comprehensive analysis of Canada’s policies and procedures for family reunification. Unlike other texts in this area, this book’s practical approach guides readers through the current avenues and barriers of family class sponsorship, helping immigration lawyers and consultants develop successful advocacy strategies for their clients. Readers will gain a cohesive understanding of sponsorship, the rights of spouses and partners, adoption of children, the reunification of parents and grandparents, family reunification in the refugee context, and reunification through humanitarian and compassionate grounds.

Authored by experienced immigration law experts, Michael Battista and Adrienne Smith, this handbook examines recent policy reforms in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA), and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR), producing the most up-to-date resource for immigration practitioners and consultants looking for advice on Canada’s Family Class Sponsorship policies.
