Lawyers Weekly article about Immigration Consultants and Quebec’s new regulations
It seems that this story is not going away. As reported, the province of Quebec is proposing legislation aimed at curbing unethical and unprofessional representation by immigration consultants in Quebec.
While we fully support Quebec for its initiative, the way in which their proposal reads is problematic as it will likely unduly restrict licensed out of province immigration lawyers from doing their jog for Quebec-bound immigration and visa applicants. For more information on this topic visit the Lawyers Weekly article here.
Let’s hope that Quebec reconsiders some of its proposals to strike a proper balance between access to legal service and protection of the public.
We will of course keep you posted of any further developments.
