Finding a Lawyer

To find an immigration lawyer

At any time, you may reach a lawyer working in immigration law by selecting the Immigration option on the emergency hotline for legal services. This service is called Urgence Avocat and the toll-free phone number is: 1-866-954-3525.


The list of Québec Immigration Lawyers' Association (AQAADI) members, as well as their contact information, is available on AQAADI's website. Listed lawyers are in good standing with the Barreau du Québec and their practice fully or partially focuses on immigration law. No lawyer reference will be communicated to you by AQAAD.

The Association des avocats et avocates de province, sections of Montréal, Québec and Longueuil, provide referral services to help you find a lawyer. You can find their contact information on Barreau du Québec's website.
