Supporting refugees through award-winning, life changing and lifesaving work

The Halifax Refugee Clinic officially commenced operations on June 1, 2000. The clinic is a not-for-profit, community-based organization that provides no-cost legal and settlement services to refugee claimants in Nova Scotia who are unable to afford the services of private legal counsel.

The Halifax Refugee Clinic Foundation is a permanent endowment fund, which ensures an ongoing source of support for the clinic. The foundation supports refugees through the award-winning, life-changing, and life-saving work carried out by a dedicated team of staff, volunteers, and pro bono lawyers of the Halifax Refugee Clinic.
