Bellissimo Law Group joins efforts to help people in the Philippine’s affected by Typhoon Haiyan
Bellissimo Law Group as well as other lawyers in the Canadian Bar Association National Immigration Law Section have taken it upon themselves to provide initial legal consultations and to assist with immigration applications, pro bono, for Canadians and permanent residents in Canada who wish to sponsor family members affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
This initiative follows closely to the efforts of Citizenship and Immigration Canada, who are fast-tracking new and existing applications for those who have been affected by this disaster.
“To spread the word, we are promoting the CBA special initiative through our social media channels,” says Mario Bellissimo, Chair of the CBA’s National Immigration Law Section. “The CBA will be reaching out through Facebook,LinkedIn, Twitter as well as community newspapers to reach those who will benefit from the service.”
