Canadian Immigration Short Guides
What to do when your Canadian visa application is rejected.
If you are one of the unfortunate people that has just had their Canadian visa application refused, it can be one of the most frustrating experiences of your life. Travel plans are spoiled and the hopes of being reunited with distant friends and relatives are in serious jeopardy. And to make matters worse, the form rejection letter provides only a vague reference to an officer’s belief that “you would not leave Canada at the end of your stay.” You know there must be more to it than that. If only there was a way to get a copy of the visa office file materials so that you could learn the “real reasons” your application was rejected. Well there is a way to get those file materials and I’m going to show you how! Click Here to Download
Express Entry – Essential Tips to Getting Out of the Pool Safely
I can’t tell you how often I have clients come to me after rushing to get an application filed, only to see their one good shot at success crumble around them because of an oversight on their part. It will do you no good to be the first to get your Express Entry profile submitted if you compromise accuracy and honesty for expediency. CIC has confirmed that the first draw from the pool will not occur until the end of January. As such, take your time, don’t rush things, … and above all, pay close attention to my “Essential Tips to Getting Out of the Pool Safely!” Click Here to Download
Express Entry – The Top 8 Things You Really Need to Know!
I recommend that you review the step by step guide provided by CIC on how the program will work at the 10,000 foot level. They have some really nice infographics that spell things out so that pretty much anyone can understand.
The program can be summed up in essentially four bullet points:
1. Candidate completes and submits an online Express Entry profile.
2. CIC gives the highest ranking candidates an Invitation to Apply (ITA) for PR status through one of the existing PR programs.
3. Candidate has two months to file the complete PR application online to CIC.
4. CIC approves the PR application within 6 months.
Let me cut to the chase. Although generic information can be helpful, it does not add much value for people needing real answers and direction as to the impact this new Express Entry program will have on them and their “real life” chances of qualifying for permanent resident status in Canada. I am no different than other immigration lawyers and consultants who want to set up a paid consult with you to convince you that they know what they are doing, that they are someone you can trust, and that you should retain them to guide you through the process for a fee.
