Our Toronto-based immigration lawyers believe that migration is a fundamental freedom and that immigration barriers to Canada should exist only when necessary. Canadian diversity is our strength, and immigrants are welcomed to Canada. Our firm based in Toronto, Canada can give you practical legal advice that will help you meet your immigration goals, whether it is visiting, studying or moving permanently to Canada with your family.

Our firm has expertise in complex and novel immigration issues, including advocating for the LGBTQ+  (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer) community both in Canada and abroad. Our advocacy began over 25 years ago through championing immigration issues affecting the LGBTQ+ and HIV community including advocating for the inclusion of same-sex and queer family sponsorship to Canada.  We are uniquely equipped to deal with issues that are challenging for other immigration practitioners, including medical and criminal inadmissibility issues. As teachers at the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia, we are regularly asked to comment on new immigration laws and policies.


Our firm prides itself on high quality legal work and unwavering advocacy. Please visit our Facebook page to learn more about our current work.
