Lawyers providing immigration assistance


The Barreau du Québec's lawyers are your allies for life in matters relating to immigration and your integration into your new living environment.To help you in your immigration procedures, consult a lawyer who is a member in good standing of the Barreau du Québec.

A lawyer can…

  •  …give you advice on your personal situation so that your file is as solid and complete as possible, starting with your declaration
  • …inform you about potential risks, depending on the nature of your application
  • …inform you about your rights and obligations (family, housing, work, etc.)
  • …advise you about whether or not it is advisable to file an appeal or seek judicial review—before a Canadian court—regarding the decisions that are erroneous in fact or in law

In Québec, all lawyers are governed by laws and regulations. In the event of a breach of ethics by a lawyer, you will be protected by the Barreau du Québec.


All immigration procedures may be carried out without the assistance of a lawyer or other immigration counsellor. You may submit your application yourself by carefully following all the steps. Whether you deal with a counsellor or not, your file won't be handled more quickly. However, by turning to a professional to help you, you can avoid making errors and, above all, a professional can answer your questions and guide you through a process that may sometimes seem complex to you.
