Weed the North 2 - Update on the DUI Immigration Policy

As cannabis becomes legalized in Canada, the new Driving Under the Influence (DUI) laws will mean much harsher immigration penalties for permanent residents and foreign nationals (see here for our previous newsletter explaining some of these changes).

We have received an update from the Minister regarding how the new laws will be applied to people who had received DUIs before the new DUI laws come into effect on December 18, 2018.  We've put together a video here to explain some of these changes. 

If you would like to learn more about how these changes may affect you please feel free to contact us at (416) 548-9089, or at inquiries@lmlawgroup.com.
