We are shocked and devastated by the senseless crime motivated by hatred and racism that was committed in our community on June 6. We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of those who were killed, and wish a full recovery to the surviving young boy who remains in hospital. We stand in solidarity with our Muslim partners, colleagues, clients, friends, and neighbours in rejecting Islamophobia in all forms, and demanding better for our community. Hatred has no place here. It diminishes every one of us. Each of us shares the responsibility for putting an end to it. We recognize that as members of the legal profession, our share of that responsibility is heightened. This unspeakable crime strikes at the very core of the Muslim community’s sense of security and will have a lasting impact. Although this tragedy can never be undone, we believe the goodness in our city will prevail. We commit to be better for each other, to demand better from each other and to share love, kindness and tolerance with one another. We must stand together to build a safer, more inclusive community for all.

Eligible Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada can sponsor their parents and/or grandparents to Canada. The number of sponsorships accepted each year is capped and there is a minimum income requirement for sponsors which is based on the past three income tax filing years.

The sponsor must be aware that by agreeing to sponsor your parents or grandparents, you must sign an undertaking, promising to provide financial support for the basic needs of your parents or grandparents once they become a permanent resident of Canada. If they receive social assistance, you will have to pay back what they have received during the time that you are legally responsible for them. The undertaking lasts for 20 years after your parent/grandparent becomes a permanent resident of Canada.

Contact us to find out whether the Parent and Grandparent Sponsorship program is currently open and to discuss any alternative options.
