Volunteer with CILA

Impact the Future of Canadian Immigration

Volunteering is in CILA’s DNA. CILA was initially built, and continues to be managed, by immigration lawyers who serve on a voluntary basis. For CILA to continue to have a positive impact on Canadian immigration, we need more immigration lawyers and law students to contribute to the organization as volunteers.

CILA offers a variety of volunteer opportunities. For example, you may wish to express your interest in becoming a nominee for CILA’s next Board of Directors election. You may also wish to join a CILA committee in order to develop policy recommendations and research reports, liaise with government officials, or organize educational and networking events.

Please express your interest in volunteering for CILA by completing the form below. We will be in touch with you shortly.
