Frequently Asked Questions

My company needs to hire a foreign worker. Can you help us?

Yes, we represent many employers across Canada who employ foreign workers. We can help any employer secure a work permit for their critical workers.

How can I check my eligibility for a visa?

The only way to get expert advice on your eligibility for a visa is to talk to an immigration attorney. A thorough consultation takes between 30 and 90 minutes. A consultation is a private discussion between you and an experienced lawyer.

At the end of your consultation, you will know if you are a good candidate to immigrate to Canada.

What happens in a consultation appointment?

  1. Document Review. Prior to your consultation, your lawyer will request copies of your immigration documents. You should share all of the documents you have from prior refusals, approvals, and and prior submitted applications.
  2. Review Your Situation. The first part of a consultation is spent in discussion collecting details so your lawyer can form a legal opinion. The lawyer will ask you to explain your circumstances and your immigration goals.
  3. Determine Your Eligibility. Your lawyer will explain exactly what programs are available to you. The lawyer will explain all of your options clearly and will identify which strategy will work the best.
  4. Comparison. Your lawyer will compare your options, and tell you which option will be the surest, fastest and least expensive pathway.
  5. Options, Cost, Chances, and Timeline. At the end of the consultation you will understand your options, the costs, your chances of success, and how long it will take.
