Introduction to business law for newcomers to Canada

Free information series for immigrants to conclude with final workshop on business law.

The final workshop in The Law & You Series, co-sponsored by Kelowna Community Resources (KCR) Immigrant Services and the Law Foundation of B.C., will take place Wednesday, May 18, 6:30 p.m.

The workshop will focus on the topic of business law, held at the KCR location, 120-1730 Dolphin Ave. in Kelowna.

“This session will be an Introduction to business law and will cover various topics including business structures, advantages and disadvantages for various structures, approximate costs for establishing as well as processes and considerations for getting set up,” explained workhshop presenter Una Gabie, a lawyer and partner of Touchstone Law Group LLP.

“The discussion will be focused on sole proprietorships and incorporated companies, with brief coverage on other (more complex and less common) types of structures such as joint ventures and partnerships.”

“The hope is that the session will be an informal discussion and can be fine tuned to focus on the interests of those present. Questions or requested topics gladly accepted in advance by email to so that the attendees can get the most out of the session.”

In partnership with the Law Foundation of BC and Pushor Mitchell, KCR has offered a total of seven legal information sessions aimed at supporting immigrants and migrants to the region.

Working with newcomers on a daily basis, KCR Immigrant Services determined that immigrants often require more customized support when using legal services, which led to the creation of The Law & You sessions.

The sessions are free and complimentary child minding is available. Interested participants are asked to register in advance by calling Dorothee Birker at 250-860-4911 or
