Your Source of Trusted & Reliable Immigration Legal Advice
In the wake of global economic uncertainty, many individuals are choosing to look outside of their own country for employment opportunities and financial stability. In this most recent period of fiscal unrest, Canada has fared well, making it one of the most desirable countries for immigrants to settle in to build a positive future. This is reflected in the very substantial numbers of temporary residents and immigrants Canada has received in recent years. If you would like to become one of them then, as an immigration lawyer based in Ontario, Canada's largest province, I can help you.
Besides its stable financial institutions, there are a multitude of reasons why Americans choose to immigrate north. Canada's peaceful communities, inclusive society, multiculturalism, and secure social safety net combine to make it familiar and popular with those from the United States. Our common language and compatible culture foster the development of cross-border relationships, which often blossom into immigration sponsorships. Also, for Americans, Canada's proximity to the United States gives them the possibility of remaining in close contact with loved ones in their home country, while living abroad in a very different society. For these reasons, every year many thousands of Americans come north to Canada to work, study or live on long-term basis.
That does not mean it is easy to relocate to Canada, however. Immigration here is a complex process even for newcomers from friendly neighbouring countries such as the United States. This is at least in part because most Canadian immigration programs do not specifically create a preference for Americans. As Canada is such a popular immigrant destination, there are many more applications than Canada can accept, and so standards are high across the board. Rules and policy are frequently changing. A lawyer experienced with U.S. immigration to Canada is an important asset to ensure you pick the right program, including those few that are specifically designed for Americans, and so to ensure that the process of your immigration to Canada unfolds smoothly.
