Immigration Lawyers in Canada

You are not obliged to hire a lawyer for immigration matters. The Government of Canada treats everyone equally, whether they have an immigration lawyer or not. If you choose to hire an immigration lawyer, your application will not be given special attention nor can you expect faster processing or a more favourable outcome.

A good immigration lawyer, however, can be very helpful.  Qualified Canadian immigration lawyers are intimately familiar with the immigration system in Canada.  An immigration lawyer can evaluate your chance of being able to immigrate to Canada.  A lawyer can help you submit your immigration application carefully, to ensure that you have the best possible chance of success.  An immigration lawyer can also help you communicate with Canadian immigration officials throughout the application process.  Immigration lawyers can also help with appeals of rejected applications.

Who Needs Immigration Lawyers?

It is fairly easy to apply for a Temporary Resident Permit (visitor visa) or Study Permit (student visa) without the help of a lawyer.  Citizens of some countries, such as Japan, Germany, and Korea, can usually handle such applications without lawyers, as long as they follow the instructions carefully.  Citizens of countries with higher rejection rates, however, can often benefit from the help of a good immigration lawyer.

Immigrating to Canada is a more complicated process that requires careful preparation.  Although anyone can apply independently, the process can be easier with assistance from immigration lawyers.  You can find Canadian immigration lawyers below.
