“Canadians are born all over the world. It just sometimes takes them a bit of time to get here” - Wayne Potoroka, Mayor of Dawson City, Yukon.
Born and raised in southern Alberta, Jason migrated to Nova Scotia in 2002 to pursue studies at Saint Mary’s University where he graduated with a BA (Hons in Geography) in 2005. He then moved to Ontario to attend graduate school at Wilfrid Laurier University where he obtained a Masters in Environmental Studies in 2007, thereafter returning to Halifax to attend law school at Dalhousie University where he graduated with his LLB in 2010.
Jason’s personal interests in geography and world travel brought him naturally to the practice of immigration law, and since 2013 Jason’s practice has been focused exclusively on assisting his clients realize their immigration ambitions. His work covers all aspects of immigration law, including work, study, and visitor applications, permanent resident and citizenship applications, admissibility issues, humanitarian and compassionate causes, refugee claims and matters of judicial review before the Federal Court of Canada.
When not at work, and depending on the season, Jason can typically be found in a tent or canoe somewhere camping with his wife and two young boys, or in his workshop where he enjoys woodworking as a hobby.
