The Halifax Refugee Clinic is a deserving not for profit in our community that helps refugees with legal and settlement services free of charge. The Halifax Refugee Clinic was founded in 2000 to assist those fleeing persecution in their home countries, and arriving in Nova Scotia in search of a safe haven. They provide both legal and settlement services. Since legal aid is not available in our province for immigration matters, the clinic is the only no cost option available in Nova Scotia for refugee claimants that cannot afford a lawyer. The clinic receives no government funding, and although they receive the support of the Law Foundation of Nova Scotia, they rely heavily on private donations and fundraising initiatives such as this.
