Canadian Permanent Residence

Looking to obtain or keep Canadian Permanent Residence? Concerned about the residency obligation for Canadian permanent residence? Our team of Canadian immigration professionals can help. We assist with applications for all categories of Canadian permanent residence. We help our clients determine their eligibility, find the best type of application, and prepare strong application packages. We can help to overcome hurdles to obtaining Canadian permanent residence, such as criminal or medical inadmissibility issues.

Our team can help determine which category of Canadian permanent residence is right for you. If you are considering economic immigration, we can help you to navigate Canada’s new Express Entry application system.

We are also experienced in assisting current permanent residents of Canada with issues regarding the residency obligation, permanent resident cards, or applications for Canadian citizenship.

The Canadian permanent resident card is an important document for identification and travel. To obtain a new permanent resident card after it expires, you will need to prove that you meet the residency obligation for permanent residence. Where absences are significant or supporting evidence is missing, the process can become complicated, and an application for a new card may trigger loss of permanent resident status. We can help to ensure that an application is as strong as possible, and can help to fight loss of Canadian permanent residence if it is found that the residency obligation has been breached.

Canadian Experience Class Permanent Residence Application – July 2014

I would like to say thank you very much for all the support in my application for Permanent Residency in Canada. I had tried on my own, and the case was refused.  I then came to you.  You and your team provided excellent help that changed everything.  I just crossed the border to finalize the process and I am currently waiting for CIC to send me my PR card.  Best wishes.

Permanent Resident Card Renewal – May 2014

Jacqueline, when I saw that CIC had finally reached a decision on the delayed permanent resident card renewal, I thought I would faint! The journey for  the PR card has been  nerve-wracking,  but you made it peaceful.  We could not have succeeded without your help and guidance. Thanks a million.

Permanent Resident Card Renewal – October 2012

I would like to thank you for your help and support.  I received my PR card this morning.  It would have not been possible without your professional assistance!  The important element of my case is my frequent business travel outside Canada and protracted absences.  I will keep track of my travels and will keep you posted. Based on my family travel plans and my business activity, I assume that we will become eligible for Canadian citizenship in March-April next year.  I truly hope that you will agree to continue assisting my family at that time too. Kind regards and thank you very much again!
