Irma Roberts has years of experience dealing with the complex process associated with immigration applications. Not only is she a skilled lawyer, she has a thorough understanding of the most recent changes in the government’s rules and regulations surrounding immigration laws in Canada.
Why USE A LAWYER TO FACILITATE THE PROCESS
Understanding the forms and application process is complex and time consuming;
Hiring a lawyer will help you submit a professional and complete application;
Organizing your professional life to accommodate the time it takes to complete an application in a correct and timely fashion may not be possible; and
Submitting the essential documents to Immigration Canada is necessary if you do not want to delay the processing of your visa application.
- PARENTAL SPONSORSHIP/ SUPERVISA
- INVESTMENT IMMIGRATION
- TEMP PERMITS / EXPRESS ENTRY
- OTHER ROUTES TO PERMANENT RESIDENCY
Express Entry is a relatively new immigration program to obtain Canadian permanent residency. Under this system, you must submit a profile to see if you have enough points for a stream leading to permanent residency. If you have enough points, you can apply for permanent residency. Express Entry can be quite confusing. Leave the stress to us and allow us to simplify and complete the process for you.
Citizenship and Permanent Residency
We understand the various processes involved in becoming a Canadian permanent resident. Further, we know the importance and benefits of becoming a Canadian citizen. For example, having a Canadian passport allows you to travel to nearly every country in the world without any impairment or restrictions. We are able to provide assistance with applications for permanent residency, applications for citizenship, and proof of citizenship applications.
Family Immigration Applications
This permanent residency stream includes spousal and domestic partnership applications, as well as applications for dependent children, parents, or for other family members seeking to come to Canada.
Business Immigration Applications
This permanent residency stream is for those who are able to be economically established in Canada. There are a variety of programs for entrepreneurs or investors to come and start their businesses here.
Work & Study Permits
To come to Canada, you need a permit. Often, people will want to come to Canada to work or study. There are a variety of permits which allow you to come to Canada or extend your stay in Canada. We will review your situation and ensure you have the proper documentation for your needs in Canada.
Visitor and Super Visa Applications
If you are coming to visit Canada you may need a temporary resident visa depending on your citizenship. This applies for tourists, business visitors, or those coming to visit their children or grandchildren. Parents can apply for Super Visas. We are able to prepare these applications so that you can visit our beautiful country.
Provincial Nominee Applications
These programs are for those working in Canada who have skills, education, and work experience to contribute to the economy of a respective province, and are living in the respective province. Further, these programs assist any individual seeking to become a permanent resident and citizen of Canada.
As a physician, it is likely you will qualify for immigration if you are currently working in Canada. The question is: to which program should you apply and how quickly can you receive your permanent residency status?
Remember, licensing and immigration are two separate issues. You may have permanent residency in Canada. Nonetheless, you may not be able to practice as a physician in Canada. Licensing of physicians is being done by the respective provincial College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Did you know that you can apply to some of these programs even if you have not lived or worked in Canada before? This is another piece of information that can be discussed in a consultation with us.
Canadians are proud to hold one of the most prized citizenships in the world. When you apply and receive your citizenship you are finally done with the work permit process and the days of extensions and multiple entry visas are over. You no longer have to apply and renew your PR Card.
In the fall of 2017 new changes will be implemented to reduce the time period spent in Canada to three years before you can apply for citizenship. Time spent before you receive your permanent residency will count to 50% up to a maximum of one year. To avoid the delays that add to processing times, it is important that you have a properly prepared application. Please feel free to contact us to book a consultation for up-to-date information and the opportunity to learn more about changes in the application process.
Irma Roberts’ legal fees are flat-fee based. This means there are no unforeseen additional legal fees based on varying hourly rates. Fees depend on the specific type of application. Please contact us for a quote and more information.
If you need more information you may schedule a consultation. We do offer a consultation using Skype, FaceTime, or WhatsApp to discuss the immigration process and requirements. We do charge a fee because we provide you with valuable information to assist you in making a decision about an immigration matter. When we feel that you may not qualify we will advise you instead of charging you for an application that will fail. We believe that it is better to receive “ bad news” and make a decision accordingly than holding out hope about working, studying or living in Canada. During this consultation we may also advise you of other options to consider when you apply for Immigration to Canada.
