Supported by the expertise of general editors Cathryn Sawicki and Chantal Desloges, Emond’s new Immigration Law Series provides a practical approach to all areas of immigration law.
Family Class Sponsorship in Canadian Immigration Law, the second volume in the series, provides a comprehensive analysis of Canada’s policies and procedures for family reunification.
