August 2018: Alberta member firm Field Law last month awarded $75,000 to organizations and charitable initiatives throughout the province and the Northwest Territories as part of its Community Fund Program.

Over the past six years, it has awarded $475,000 to over 80 organizations in Alberta and the Northwest Territories. Its related online voting campaign generates favorable publicity for both program participants and the firm, while client involvement with the judging panel helps cultivate stronger community ties.

March 2017: U.S. President Donald Trump’s far-reaching executive order imposing new bans on refugees and some legal immigrants has not only sown considerable confusion but also among individuals and businesses around the world generated considerable interest in immigration options to Canada.

With over 15 years’ experience working with Canadian and international clients, Mr. Langford has extensive knowledge of the Canadian temporary foreign worker program, employer compliance and strategies for obtaining permanent residence and citizenship in Canada. He received his legal education at the University of British Columbia. Ms. Kirk has assisted individuals and employers with applications for admission to Canada as temporary residents and foreign workers, and with applications for permanent residence and citizenship. She also has experience with U.S. visa applications, waivers and NEXUS applications, as well as Canadian record suspension applications, applications based on humanitarian and compassionate grounds and residency appeals. She received her J.D. from the University of Calgary.
