Canadian Immigration and Citizenships

We provide a wide range of immigration services to individuals, family’s and employers.


Temporary residence

There are lots of temporary residence status under Canadian immigration rules and regulations. We work with a full range of temporary residence applications including:

  • Visitor
  • Temporary Foreign Worker
  • International Mobility
  • Student

The Express Entry system and the immigration programs it covers, is arguably one of the quickest options available for individuals to acquire Permanent Residence status. Whilst it appears to be a one size fits all, beware of the fine print. That said, doing an initial assessment to identify how many points you might be able to score is a good place to start the Express Entry process.

IRCC provides a points calculator on its website to allow you to make an initial assessment. The link below will take you to the calculator. Please note: This tool is intended solely for general guidance and reference purposes only.

COMPREHENSIVE RANKING SYSTEM

Business Immigration

We provide immigration advice to entrepreneurs as well as employers and their employees and in some small way, we all contribute to the ongoing growth of the Canadian economy be that at the local level or more nationally.

We can assist with applications including:

  • Labour Market impact assessments

Immigration Refusals

Unfortunately refusals can happen to anyone. If it does happen to you, call us! Different applications have different appeal rights and time limits within which to exercise those rights. If necessary, we are prepared to litigate these refusals on your behalf. This is a complex area of Immigration law that warrants the involvement of an immigration lawyer.

Collaboration

No man is an island. That is also true when thinking about how immigration law interacts with other areas of the law e.g. criminal law and family law. We work with Barristers & Solicitors in other fields to provide them with valuable insights into the interplay between immigration law and therer are of practice.

We also work with Regulated Immigration Consultants to provide additional services to their clients in areas, such as litigation, that they are not regulated to operate in.
