I'm a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant here to answer your questions about Canadian visas & Immigration.
I focus on Express Entry, Family Sponsorship, in-Canada Refuge claims, and Temporary Resident Permits.
I've lived, worked and studied in 6 different countries, and a few years ago I decided to make Canada my permanent home. I got my immigration consultant license after working at various nonprofits, and supporting survivors of labour trafficking, refugees, refugee claimants, international students and migrant workers.
I have an IG account tic.immigrate.canada where I post content to help people better understand Canadian immigration and avoid mistakes, and a website where I post more detailed articles ticimmigration.ca
All of my answers to your questions are not intended to be legal advice and should not be used as such. This is merely to provide general information.
If you want legal advice, you should book a 1-on-1 consultation with a licensed professional who will ask you all the relevant info about your situation. :)
Please, ask away!
Thank you everyone for such an engaging discussion! It's my first time doing an IAmA and I'm very excited to see all the questions.
Please remember that none of the answers are to be considered legal advice. It's virtually impossible to account for all the nuances of one's situation from 1 question without getting all of their details. So please treat this as general information and cross-check it with the government website.
However, I hope the answers gave you a place to start your research :)
I am going to call it a day! Thanks again, this has been great!
