About Heron Law Offices
We are a forward-looking full-service Canadian Immigration,

area and serving clients across Canada and Globally.
Our focus is in the representation of families (sponsors/applicants), international students/designated learning institutions, and temporary workers with complex immigration applications and litigation. Our immigration litigation work focuses on Immigration Appeals before the Immigration Appeal Division, Inadmissibility matters before the Immigration Division, and Judicial Reviews before the Federal Court of Canada. We actively engage in strategic litigation and community lawyering.
Our dedication and focus on our craft enables us to assist you and your loved ones. Canadian immigration is not an easy process, but we are here to be your trusted advisors in your time of greatest need. We take care of your best interests and at the same time work to break down systemic barriers, help change law and policy, and advocate for Indigenous sovereignty.
We want to be the Lawyers for the Migrant Communities that built us. We are growing, expanding, and dreaming of a brighter tomorrow.
We are fluent and/or professionally competent in Mandarin, Cantonese, Farsi, Pashtu, Punjabi, Hindi and the German languages. We also work with top certified interpreters/translators to assist our clients as often required by Canadian immigration and refugee law.
