*The Legal Information Sessions only give general legal information, not legal advice. If you have a legal problem or need legal advice, you should speak to a lawyer.
The Partners for Legal Education (PLE) work together to offer this Legal Information Series to new Canadians. The Partners for Legal Education believe knowing your legal rights and responsibilities is key to full and equal participation in society. The information sessions also give the partners and presenters a chance to better understand cultural views by talking with immigrants and learning from their many different experiences.
