Based on your work experience and level of education, you may be able to apply as an economic immigrant, business immigrant or be sponsored by a close family member, amongst other options.

Persons may wish to visit Canada for pleasure, business or to study. As well, if you wish to work in Canada there are many options including a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). Global Skills Strategy (GSS) or Intra Company Transfers (ICT) may be an appropriate option. As well, international agreements such as NAFTA, GATS, CETA, TPP and IEC may assist you. You may also need to obtain an ETA, Temporary Resident Visa and/or Temporary Resident Permit before coming to Canada. Choosing the best strategy for your particular situation is critical to your success.
Once we have helped you obtain your permanent residence, we can also assist you with becoming a Canadian citizen. Canadian citizenship is automatic for those born in Canada or by descent where a parent is a first-generation Canadian citizen. Permanent Residents can apply for Canadian citizenship after being physically present in Canada for at least three years in a five year period. The knowledge and language requirements do not apply to applicants between the ages of 18 and 54. As well, minors can now apply for citizenship on their own without a parent.
Depending on your situation, you can contest a negative Immigration decision with an appeal to the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada or with an application for Judicial Review to the Federal Court. Undertaking these processes require an in-depth understanding of the laws, timelines and procedures involved. Applicants under a Removal Order may seek redress in the Federal Court with a Motion for a Stay. At Seligman Law we have a reputation and expertise in assisting clients with inadmissibility issues.
