Adam Avi Hummel

Adam’s approach to immigration law begins with the idea that each new arrival to Canada can make this country a better place. Adam was born in South Africa, and moved to Canada with his family as a child. With roots as an immigrant, seeing first hand the struggles and successes that immigrants can achieve in this country, he believes that newcomers both can and do transform Canadian society for the better.

Immigration law is different from other areas of law. There is a specific human element to each file, where each story is unique and requires a compassionate approach to ensure that one’s immigration goals are achieved. As one of Adam’s mentors once told him, the goal is a simple piece of paper that says “Welcome to Canada.”

Throughout Adam’s career as an immigration lawyer, he has sought to share his clients’ stories with the relevant authorities, to make sure that they achieve their immigration goals. He works on a broad range of immigration matters including family immigration, visa applications, work permits, study permits, and humanitarian and compassionate applications. He specializes in enforcement and inadmissibility issues, including medical and criminal inadmissibility, and has represented his clients at all levels of Canadian immigration tribunals, including the Refugee Protection Division (RPD), Refugee Appeal Division (RAD), the Immigration Division (ID), and the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD). He frequently appears at the Federal Court for judicial review hearings, and has assisted with admissibility hearings and detentions reviews too.

Adam graduated from York University with an Hons. (B.A.) in political science and history, and obtained his J.D. from the law school at the University of Windsor. He has practiced in a variety of boutique law firms, and practices both immigration and civil litigation.

Adam is married with two young children. When not working, he can either be found playing with his kids, reading a recently published non-fiction book, or trying to find Toronto’s best fish tacos.
