Helping parents without immigration status get their children into school

In Ontario, it is against the law for a school to refuse to admit a child who is under 18 years of age only because the child or the child's parent or guardian is in Canada without immigration status. This online resource is for community workers and is meant to help them help parents who do not have immigration status register their children for school. The webpage has basic information about the law and links to relevant resources, and suggests ways community workers can assist parents.
