Canadian & U.S. Immigration Services
Offering services in English, French, Italian, Spanish, Romanian, and Arabic
WHAT WE DO
We exclusively practice in the area of business immigration with focus on Canadian immigration law and U.S. immigration law spanning work permits, permanent residency, and citizenship. We also assist eligible professionals from Canada, the U.S. and Mexico in obtaining work permits under NAFTA to enter the labour market in Canada and the U.S. Our ultimate goal is to help professionals, skilled workers, and executives of corporations, ensure all requirements are met to avoid surprises at the border, eliminate uncertainties, and cross the border to the U.S. or Canada confidently to engage in business without fear or doubts.
STRATEGIC LEGAL ADVISE SESSIONS
We offer legal consultations* to clients on an hourly basis and we examine legal matters thoroughly to provide strategic immigration solutions that work.
TRAINING SESSIONS FOR CORPORATE HR OR INHOUSE COUNSEL
We offer training sessions and presentations at your premises to educate the team that is responsible for filing immigration applications and work permits for your employees on specific strategies especially those related to recent changes in the law.
SIMULATED BORDER INTERVIEW
We emphasize the importance of simulating the decisive and critical interview process with an immigration officer at the port of entry. In that sense, we are experienced on offering a valuable information session on why an employee or applicant qualifies for the selected visa category, and we conduct a mock interview to better prepare visa applicants and alleviate the stress of the face to face screening by the immigration officer. If requested accompaniment to the border can be arranged (when and where possible).
ACCOMPANYING CLIENTS TO A POINT OF ENTRY
Dealing with the requirements of business immigration laws in Canada and the U.S. can be a challenge for business travelers from both countries and from around the world. The reality is, borders do exist; and the strict immigration laws put in place hinder the mobility of professionals, thus making the task of crossing the borders on business anything but seamless. If business travelers are not well-prepared, certain complex rules and regulations can land them in unfamiliar territories, and potentially cause a setback to the operations of the organization they represent.
The French speaking province of Québec in Canada has its own set of immigration laws for both temporary work permits and permanent immigration applications. Therefore, such regulations must be taken into consideration besides the Federal (CIC) regulations when the intended destination is Québec, "La Belle Province". We assist our clients in handling applications for the Québec simplified LMIA required for work permits in the province or the "demande d'étude d'impact sur le marché du travail (EIMT)", Québec skilled worker program, Québec experience program (PEQ), Québec investor program, Québec entrepreneur program, and the Québec self-employed worker program.
