Why an
Immigration Lawyer?

It is not mandatory to hire an immigration lawyer, but the truth is the procedure is not as easy as you think. It is not an endeavour you will want to go through alone as it is an extensive process. The reality is that the Canadian Immigration process is quite complex. It is always best to take the help of professionals to make your application process easier and hassle-free. It is much easier to get it right the first time around than doing damage control later. By employing our services, we ensure that our client reaps the benefits of our services and expertise.

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act allows individuals to apply on humanitarian and compassionate grounds. In addition, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act allows the Minister of Citizenship and Immigration to grant permanent resident status if the Minister is of the opinion that it is justified by humanitarian and compassionate considerations, taking into account the best interests of a child directly affected, or by public policy considerations.

Foreign nationals in Canada looking for a special permit to become Canadian permanent residents can submit a Humanitarian & Compassionate (H&C) application.

Read More

Applications for Humanitarian and Compassion are judged according to how well-established the applicant is in Canada and how much adversity they faced if they had to submit their request from abroad.

Factors that can influence success are as follows:

  • Duration of stay in Canada
  • Canada-based family
  • Children in Canada
  • Job in Canada
  • Canadian establishment
  • Additional compelling reasons

In contrast to pending refugee claims, a pending application for humanitarian and compassionate consideration does not bar Citizenship and Immigration Canada from expelling the applicant from Canada before the case has been reviewed.

An application for humanitarian and compassionate consideration is assessed by considering your circumstances and comparing them against whether you should be given this unusual treatment under Canadian immigration law. These factors consist of the following:

  • Bringing families together
  • Best interests of any involved children
  • Availability of medical or health care
  • Adverse country circumstances
  • Your location in Canada, including your finances, business assets, your involvement in and support from the community, as well as any prior employment

To determine whether filing a Humanitarian & Compassionate (H&C) application is worthwhile of your time and effort, Ronen Kurzfeld, our Immigration Lawyer based in Toronto, is qualified to examine your case accurately. Creating submissions for immigration officers to review can require hours of work and hundreds of pages of supporting paperwork for these applications. To find out if you qualify for the Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds programme and to apply for permanent residence in Canada, please get in touch with us.

Foreign professionals with a high level of expertise can apply for permanent residency in Canada using the Express Entry system. The Federal Skilled Worker Category, the Federal Skilled Trades Category, the Canadian Experience Class, and the Provincial Nominee Programs are among the application categories that Express Entry covers. Qualified overseas applicants must first declare their interest in applying under one of these categories by registering with Express Entry. Then they must wait to find out if they have been asked to apply for permanent residence.

You do not need to receive a job offer from Canada to apply through Express Entry. Instead, your qualifications will be evaluated based on how well you can financially establish yourself in this country, including your education, work experience, proficiency in English or French, and other characteristics.

Read More

The Canada Express Entry process uses a points-based system to classify applicants seeking permanent residency in Canada based on a Comprehensive Ranking System or CRS. They are awarded points based on their qualifications, prior work history, employment status in Canada, and provincial or territorial nomination. A higher score increases the likelihood of receiving an invitation to apply (ITA) for Canadian permanent residence.

For serious candidates seeking immigration to Canada, Kurzfeld Law is the go-to immigration law firm with the best immigration lawyers in Toronto. We make sure you take the appropriate action at every step with our extensive approach and end-to-end support, such as;

  • Templates for reference letters
  • Templates for Self Declarations

Any foreigner can visit Canada with a Tourist Visa. In addition, Canada offers two different types of Canada visas: Single entry and Multiple entries.

Foreign nationals are only permitted one entry into Canada on a single-entry visa. While with the multiple entry visa, a visitor may enter Canada for as long as the visa is in effect. Its possessor may enter and exit the country as often as they like. There is no requirement that you choose the type of tourist visa you want to apply for; all applicants are automatically considered for multiple-entry visas, and single-entry visas are only granted in exceptional cases.

Read More

Those who require a tourist visa to enter Canada can apply online, on paper, or in person at a visa application centre. When travelling as a family, every member of the group—including kids under 18—must submit a separate application. It is possible to submit all of the applications at once, though. Depending on their nation of citizenship, applicants for Canada visas might have to submit biometric data. Our Canadian immigration lawyers ensure that your application has the best possibility of being accepted.

Our cost strategy is the best and the most reasonable one in the market with exceptional services and guidance. Over the years, our hassle-free procedure has already helped many thousands of tourists.

The Canadian government has implemented Spousal Sponsorship Programs in an effort to support families in staying together. If you want to bring your spouse or partner to Canada permanently, this is a great choice.

A common-law partner is a person living with another person who may or may not be of the same sex as the common-law partner in a conjugal relationship (a marriage-like arrangement without being married). You must provide proof to establish a common-law connection, a conjugal relationship, or cohabitation.

A well-established programme in Canada that permits spouses and companions to come there is known as Spousal Sponsorship. The sponsor might be a Canadian citizen, a permanent resident, or a foreigner. The government granted this benefit in order to raise Canada’s family immigration quota.

Parents and grandparents who are sponsored will be granted permanent resident status, enabling them to remain in Canada permanently, work or study, and have access to social services like medical care.

The two-step procedure of submitting a parental sponsorship application entails the Canadian requesting to be accepted as a sponsor.

Are you unsure whether you qualify to sponsor your spouse for a spouse visa? Worry not; your licenced immigration lawyers in Toronto atKurzfeld law firm are here to assist you. We have helped many families and assisted them through each step of the family Spousal Sponsorship process.

For people looking to work overseas, Canada, one of the most developed economies in the world, is a terrific choice. Business people, temporary workers, permanent workers, students, and other workers are all permitted to work in Canada with the Canadian Work Permit Visa. However, most people require a job offer to obtain a work permit. If you’ve been offered a job, your Canadian employer will likely need to apply for Employment Validation approval with Service Canada. To help you with immigration matters, contact our professional immigration lawyers, who handle all your immigration matters proficiently.

The Canadian government issues two work permits: open work permits and employer-specific permits. You can work for any employer with an open work permit. Candidates do not need to submit a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) or an offer letter from an employer who has paid the compliance fee since this visa is not job-specific.

Universities in Canada attract students from all over the world to enrol in various courses. Each Canadian university is distinguished by its advanced curriculum, expansive campuses, and robust infrastructure. The Canadian immigration authorities can grant international students the right to study in Canada by issuing a study permit. With legitimate study permission, international students can enroll in courses in Canada. Enrolling in Designated Learning Institutions is another benefit for students who receive a study permit. A school given the go-ahead from a province or territorial government to accept international students is known as a Designated Learning Institution (DLI).

The candidate must meet the required levels in English or French for each language ability (speaking, reading, writing and listening).

The candidate must have at least two years of full-time work experience (or an equal amount of part-time work experience) in a skilled trade within the five years before you apply.

Read More

Points are awarded based on 6 factors:

  • Education (maximum 25 points)
  • Language ability in English and French (maximum 24 points)
  • Work experience (maximum 21 points)
  • Age (maximum 10 points)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q. Is it necessary to hire a lawyer for the immigration process?

The immigration process can be confusing for many people. Hence hiring a knowledgeable and qualified immigration lawyer in Toronto to represent you in court is always a superior choice. Only they can assist you in deciding which course of action is ideal for your unique case. It is always better to get the application right the first time rather than doing damage control which is what happens in most cases with people who apply by themselves without the help of a professional.

Q. How do I know I am choosing to hire a competent Canadian immigration lawyer?

The best practice is to ensure the lawyer you choose is an active member of the provincial bar association of the region or where you intend to relocate. It is also a good idea to check their years of experience in the field, get more details about their area of expertise and also to go through their client testimonials.

Q. Why do I need to hire a lawyer? Could I choose a less expensive option, like a paralegal?

Yes, but hiring an immigration lawyer is encouraged because they are supervised by provincial law societies and are subject to a code of ethics. If you need representation in court or throughout an appeals process at any stage of your immigration process, only an immigration lawyer can help you and not a paralegal. Also, an immigration lawyer will have far more experience to guide you through the process than a paralegal can.

Q. As hiring a lawyer is quite costly, which services are included in this price?

Q. My lawyer has helped me assess my eligibility for permanent residence immigration in Canada. Now, if I go ahead and apply without his or her help, could I be certain of a successful outcome?

It is always advisable to get the help of a professional at the start of your application process rather than trying to fix the damage done by a wrong application.
