Temporary Residence and Work Permits
An experienced immigration attorney can assist you with your initial application to visit, work permit application process, extensions and student visa application.

If for some reason you are declared inadmissible to Canada, an attorney can help you secure a permit to enter the country for a specific time period. Other times, employers may need assistance with the work permit process, such as obtaining a labor market exemption letter or positive labor market opinion. Immigration attorneys also provide help with foreign student study permits and work permits.

You’re entitled to a detention review before the Immigration Division within two days. If you’ve been deemed inadmissible to the country, you’re entitled to criminal rehabilitation.
