LEGAL RIGHTS FOR NEWCOMERS
With funding support from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador’s Office of Immigration and Multiculturalism, Public Legal Information offers specialized legal support for newcomers to Newfoundland and Labrador.
This support includes one-on-one legal support, lawyer referrals, specialized legal clinics, and the development and delivery of plain language and translated legal information publications and presentations on different areas of the law.
Through this project, newcomers can access legal support in the areas of immigration law, family law, labour and employment law, human rights, criminal law, residential tenancies and other housing issues, civil litigation, and other areas of the law they may encounter.
All newcomers in Newfoundland and Labrador can access supports as part of this project, including immigrants following various pathways and programs towards permanent residency, international students, refugees, temporary foreign workers, and other newcomers living anywhere in the province.
For more information on this project or to access legal information and support, please contact Maria Mulcahy, Legal Rights for Newcomers Project Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Legal Information Line at 1-888-660-7788.
