This conference brings together leading immigration law practitioners from both the United States and Canada to discuss issues touching on immigration to both countries, with a focus on the North Eastern U.S./Canada border posts.
This important cross-border program was attended by approximately 100 US and Canadian lawyers, and several senior government officials, including keynote speaker, the new US Consul in Toronto, and the Canada Border Services Agency Chief of Rainbow Bridge (Niagara Falls).
The theme of this year’s conference was “Dealing with Change”, reflecting the fact that since last year’s conference, the electorates in both Canada and the United States have installed new leadership at the federal level. A more restrictive immigration attitude has taken hold in the United States, and practitioners must adjust accordingly. Conference presentations this year focused on the effects of these changes.
