This component involves inland activities related to case work at every step of the refugee or immigration determination process


The MPC is a new program that allows FCJ Refugee Centre to implement migration and support clinics at various locations across the GTA and Ontario to offset the barriers, better equip a wide range of service providers and increase access to justice to a wide base of precarious migrant populations.

Thanks to the Law Foundation of Ontario,  FCJ Refugee Centre’s staff is able to work directly with staff at partner organizations to schedule appointments, complete intakes and work on various applications associated with different migration processes.
