Why You Should Hire a Canadian Immigration Lawyer

Many clients feel confident enough to prepare their own applications after reading through the Canadian immigration rules online or by having a consultation with a Canadian immigration lawyer. However, it is worth noting the following statistics involving cases submitted without the assistance of a Canadian immigration lawyer:

  • Over 30% of all Canadian immigration applications are returned to applicants for being incomplete,
  • Over 50% of all Canadian immigration applications are rejected,
  • Under the new Canadian Express Entry program over 55% of all applications submitted fail to meet the minimum requirements to be eligible for the first stage.
  • Of the eligible applicants who received an Invitation to Apply for Permanent Residence, approximately 60% were unable to file a valid application with all of the supporting evidence within the required 60 days.
Consequences of invalid or rejected Canadian immigration applications

If your Canadian visa application is invalid or rejected you will lose your processing fees. Returned or rejected applications can cost you many months if not years while you waited for a decision with the consequence that you may no longer qualify for Canadian immigration due to changes in the laws. If you have to resubmit your application it will go to the back of the queue.
