Location

The Anchor Law office is located in the heart of Toronto, on Gerrard Street, just east of Sherbourne Street. Anchor Law is also a member of the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI), a co-working space and community dedicated to supporting socially minded and innovative organizations. With CSI’s three locations in Toronto (in the Annex, Chinatown, and Regent Park) Anchor Law is able to arrange client meetings in private and IT-equipped boardrooms at any of these locations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I consult or hire a lawyer for an immigration matter?

Consulting with a lawyer can provide you with an assessment of your situation and strategic advice on how and when to engage with the immigration system to achieve your long term goals. For more complex matters, such as refugee claims or spousal sponsorships, the information you provide at the beginning of the process is crucial to your success. A misstep early on can result in refusals, delays, and costly appeals. In some circumstances you may not have an opportunity to provide information that you had all along but did not know you should have included. With Anchor Law your application is prepared with success at the first stage in mind.

How do I know if someone claiming to be a lawyer or an immigration consultant is legitimate?

Lawyers in Ontario are licenced and regulated by the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC). Lawyers in other Canadian provinces are regulated by their respective provincial law societies. LSUC provides an online lawyer and paralegal directory where you can verify a lawyer’s status. For the most up to date information it is best to contact LSUC by telephone.

 

Immigration consultants in Canada are regulated by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Counsel (ICCRC). The ICCRC website also provides a directory of active consultants as well as notices of disciplinary proceedings.

How do I know if I can get Legal Aid?

To see whether your type of immigration matter is covered by Legal Aid Ontario (LAO), and whether you qualify financially, please consult the LAO website. Generally speaking, LAO covers refugee and protection-related legal services for those who qualify financially, and does not cover services such as tourist or student visa applications, economic migration, or family sponsorship-related applications.

Do you offer free consultations?

Anchor Law does not generally offer free consultations. The value of a consultation lies in the thorough assessment of your matter, and the detailed advice on the options available to you, that you will receive. This may be enough for you to proceed confidently with an application on your own, saving you the time and money associated with making an error. If your matter is more complex and you retain Anchor Law to represent, you will negotiate a fair and transparent fee arrangement.

 

For clients for whom a consultation fee would present a significant financial burden, Anchor Law is happy to consider a discount or waive the consultation fee.

 

Clients who are funded by Legal Aid Ontario will not pay any fees.
