We like to call our clients newcomers because we believe they come with something new to Canada when they settle here. When you are navigating Canada’s immigration system, you can easily get confused and frustrated. We can guide you through the labyrinth of Canadian immigration rules and regulations.
We offer a wide variety of services covering the full spectrum of immigration law. All services include initial assessment, eligibility, application, and follow-up correspondence in the duration of processing.
- Maintaining Permanent Residency – your status must be renewed every five years and after meeting all requirements can apply for citizenship
- Permanent Card renewals
- Eligibility – Canada’s Citizenship laws have undergone many changes: The British North America Act 1967, Canada Citizenship Act 1946, the Citizenship Act 1977. The Citizenship Act was amended in 1985, and again in 2014 & 2015. Further changes occurred in June 2017 giving us our present Citizenship Act. The patchwork of laws and amendments, citizenship can become a complicated matter. We can help you solve the confusion.
