While you wait for your hearing

Contact your lawyer right away if you get any letters from immigration authorities.  Send a copy to your lawyer. Your lawyer needs to see the letter to know what it says.

If you leave a telephone message for your lawyer, leave your full name and contact information even if they already have it. Say exactly why you are calling.

It is natural to feel stressed or anxious about your hearing. If you need help to cope with your stress or anxiety, you may want to talk to someone who knows about refugee health.

You can receive health care and apply for a work permit or social assistance while you wait for your hearing. Children also have the right to attend school.
