Navigating Immigration Law to Support Racialized Clients and Others
May 2, 2022 @ 12:00 - 1:30 p.m. ET
Presented by: Shalini Konanur, Executive Director & Lawyer, South Asian Legal Clinic of Ontario (SALCO)
Racialized communities, and in particular, those with mental health issues, face significant barriers to immigration security. Immigration law is by nature punitive for those suffering from mental and physical health impairments. This webinar will provide training for social workers who are working with racialized clients to identify immigration issues and to provide information and resources to address immigration status issues. Ontario has Canada’s largest population of racialized people with precarious or no immigration status. There is no doubt that many social workers will continue to encounter these communities and this session aims to support them in addressing immigration concerns.
This Webinar is FREE for Ontario Registered Social Workers (RSW), Registered Social Service Workers (RSSW) and Students of Social Work and Social Service Work Programs. Please note: If you are not an RSW, RSSW or student of these programs in Ontario, you may still attend but will be charged a fee of $20.
