Multilingual Immigration Support Rack Cards (English, French, Arabic, Somali, Spanish, Farsi)

June 10, 2016

Connecting Ottawa has created multilingual rack cards that connect those seeking support with the right services in Ottawa.

The rack cards feature our "Legal Health Check-Up" problem statements in clear language that correspond to a specific area of the law. These statements were developed by consulting broadly with local front-line legal and non-legal services providers to ensure that the most common issues were captured. The rack cards also detail specific and appropriate Ottawa-based agencies where services are available based on the legal issue.

The first rack card has been developed to cover the issue of Immigration Law is written in 6 languages: English, French, Arabic, Somali, Spanish and Farsi/Persian.  In the near future, additional rack cards will be created that will focus on common legal issues, such as family law, housing law, employment law & criminal law.

We encourage you to download and print the files attached as you wish. Feel free to also share this information with your colleagues and networks.

PLEASE NOTE: A limited number of rack cards have been printed and can be distributed to your agency based on availability and need. If your agency could benefit from having these rack cards available, please send a request to
