Pilot Workshops on Family Law Matters for Immigrants Held in Saint John and Moncton
April 25, 2016


After holding a successful workshop on family law matters for immigrants in Fredericton early in March, the Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB) were pleased to sponsor two additional pilot workshops on March 29, 2016.  In the morning, staff travelled to Saint John to observe workshop offered in Saint John.  A crowd of about 20 came out to hear the presentations of our lawyer-volunteers, namely, immigration lawyer Janet Thompson-Price and family law lawyer, Natasha Mckay.  A special thanks to the Saint John Multicultural Newcomers Resource Centre for hosting the event at their facilities. Later that evening, the workshop was piloted in Moncton and hosted by the Multicultural Association of the Greater Moncton Area (MAGMA).  Family law lawyer, Jack Haller covered the family law matters, and Nicole Druckman spoke to how family law issues might be affected by immigration status.  Again, there was a good turnout and participant feedback was positive.  

At both events, PLEIS-NB shared its newly published booklet called Family Law Matters for Immigrants in New Brunswick which can be found on the Family Law NB website.  The booklet is being translated into Korean, Mandarin and Arabic.
