The New Brunswick Refugee Clinic (NBRC) (http://www.nbrc-crnb.ca/) is a charitable organization providing free legal aid services to refugee claimants who cannot afford the services of a private lawyer.

The NBRC is building a roster of lawyer-volunteers who are willing to provide pro-bono legal services in relation to:

  • meeting with clients to prepare refugee claims;
  • performing legal research;
  • drafting arguments and submissions for hearings before the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada;
  • providing representation to clients before the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.

All volunteers are required to undergo an orientation and training session prior to being added to the volunteer roster. This training is provided free of charge by the NBRC. The next training session is scheduled for April 28, 2017 from 1:00-3:30 p.m.

Following President Trump’s Executive Orders on immigration, the New Brunswick Refugee Clinic is deeply concerned about the fate of the thousands of refugees who were in the process of being resettled to the USA.


The United States latest measures violate the Geneva Convention and are discriminatory towards refugees and immigrants of Muslim faith or background.


The New Brunswick Refugee Clinic joins other social justice, immigrant and refugee advocates to urge the Federal Government, Mr. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, Ahmed Hussen to immediately revoke the Safe Third Country Agreement which precludes those in the USA from making a refugee claim at a Canadian border. 


We also ask the Canadian government to offer to resettle refugees who were in the process of being resettled in the USA, but who are denied entry following these orders, and to increase Canada’s refugee resettlement targets for 2017 to address the continued global refugee crisis. 


The New Brunswick Refugee Clinic’s mandate is to provide free bilingual legal services to refugee claimants and persons making humanitarian-based immigration applications in New Brunswick who cannot afford a private lawyer. We believe that all people in need of protection should have access to legal services and to a safe haven.
