On April 19, 2023, many IRCC employees began a strike, as part of the Public Service Alliance of Canada's labour dispute with the Canadian government. This is having some effect on immigration applications, particularly those for permanent residents. New applications can still be submitted as usual, both online and by mail, but non-urgent applications will be delayed for the duration of the strike. Extensions of a stay in Canada can still be submitted, and maintained status remains as usual for those with applications still in processing.

Welcome to my blog! This space will be used by me to provide general legal information in my practice areas, to help readers understand their many complexities in an accessible way. The information is for public purposes only, as a general reference. My own background gives me a broad range of knowledge, but as everyone's case is different, important personal legal decisions should never be made without a lawyer's advice. All of the sources for blog posts are open and accessible and can be verified independently.
As the law is constantly in flux, information will be up to date as of the time of posting. Posts are sorted into categories for ease of navigation, but keep the date in mind when reading older posts or browsing the archives. Posts may be updated when relevant, but this is not guaranteed for all topics.
This blog details the many legal issues among Luka's practice areas, for a general audience. None of this information is a substitute for legal advice.
