The webinar will address questions such as:

  • How do people become undocumented?
  • How does this issue relate to Roxham Road?
  • How have European countries managed regularization programmes in recent years?
  • What is the difference between a regularization programme for undocumented migrants and a programme to give permanent residence to migrants with temporary status?
  • Has Canada had regularization programmes in the past?
  • Will this programme apply in Quebec?

Journalists are invited to join the webinar, listen to experts on the issues and pose their questions. The webinaire will take place in French, but questions in English are welcome.
