KCR – Community Resources is pleased to present Legal 101: A Free Information Series for Immigrants in partnership with the Law Foundation of BC. The fall series focuses on issues of interest to both employers and employees and is open to everyone.

The demographics in the Okanagan are changing with an increasing number of immigrants and migrants working and living in the region. Working with newcomers on a daily basis, KCR Immigrant Services has determined that immigrants often require more customized support when using legal services and these Legal 101 sessions allow for a more in-depth overview of major issues facing immigrants and also offer participants an opportunity to ask questions. Please pre-register.

Fall Sessions are open to both Employers and Employees. All sessions are free and complimentary child minding is available. Doors open at 6:00 pm for both sessions.
