I am really sorry to see that you could not get a consultation and I find it astounding that we could possibly receive such a different standard of service from the same professional. I have just got a phone call from Jane Katkova's office saying that my mother's H&C application has been approved. I decided to write a review and stumbled upon this disparaging comment. I hope your issue will be resolved soon (if not already), and I would like to share my experience in the hopes that it might change your mind and book another appointment. I first came to Mrs. Katkova's office in 2018, and I must admit it was difficult to schedule an appointment. As for me, I was more than willing to wait. This firm was recommended to me, and I knew they deal with cases other consultants refuse to work on. Once I became Jane Katkova’s client, she was incredibly helpful. She guided us through the whole process, gave us step-by-step instructions on what we needed and made us believe that our application will be approved, and it was! I can’t thank her enough. From my experience, I can say that she can be very busy, but she does find time for every client, or so I presume because she did find time for me. I hope your issue will be resolved, and I wish you good luck with your immigration matter!

Our family was in a very complicated situation. Every lawyer we contacted (there were more than 10 of them) refused to help us immigrating to Canada as, according to them, our case was hopeless with no chance for us to obtain Permanent Residency. The last hope was Jane Katkova. With Jane's help, we have received approval for our application, and we could not be happier and more grateful to Jane! She is a professional who knows what she does, but also she is an amazing person who is committed to her clients and their interests. I highly recommend her and her agency!

Our family is really grateful to Jane and her team of professionals for helping us reunite on the Canadian soil! Our goal was to relocate my elderly mother from Israel to Canada. It was a vital matter for us as my mother was left all alone and could not continue living on her own due to the old age. First, the chances of a successful outcome seemed unlikely due to a number of circumstances. But Jane put all her efforts and enthusiasm into researching and building our case. And now my family is here, in Canada, all together, reunited with my mom. All thanks to Jane and her wonderful team of associates!

My mother came to Canada as a visitor, not planing to stay here for a long time. Unexpectedly the situation in our family changed. I needed her to stay and support me and my young daughters. A good acquaintance recommended to me and my husband to seek advise from Jane Katkova & Associates. We booked appointment and went to see Jane. After listening to our case Jane gave us a valuable advise and direction for my mother to stay in Canada legally. After application, my mother’s journey from visitor to Canada to Permanent Resident was 2.5 years. Through all these time Jane and her Team supported and kept us abreast with all developments. Finally, my mother can stay in Canada as Permanent Resident. Thank you Jane and all the Team for making it possible! Tatyana & Patrick Dickar

There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Jane and associates have been. It was a long and painful road to success, but Jane always delivered as promised and accomplished things that others would consider impossible. I’m always going to be thankful and grateful for everything that Jane did for myself and my family. The team is always on top of everything and are willing to answer any questions and help with every step of the immigration process. I, myself have received my PR status a few days ago, and I can truly say it wouldn’t have been possible without Jane’s knowledge and hard work. Her dedication to clients is outstanding, professional. I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone that’s in the market for an immigration lawyer. Like I said before, I’m always going to be thankful for everything Jane and her team has done for me. Thank you so so much

When first starting to research how to obtain a visitor’s Visa for my husband, the process seemed so daunting, but after my visit to Jane’s office all those worries fell away. I am so happy I decided to hire Jane and her team to assist me in obtaining a visitor’s Visa and ultimately a PR for my husband. Jane was straight forward about what she required from me and was so efficient during the entire process. I could not believe how quickly she got the ball rolling and before I knew it my husband was visiting me in Canada. We decided to apply for his PR and we could not have done it without Tim! He was so accommodating and so thorough, was always quick to respond to any emails and questions, and he made the process so smooth. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am so thrilled to say my husband is now a permanent resident! We owe it all to Jane and her team. Excellent service, excellent results. Thank you guys so much!!!

I got my PR a few days ago under the help of Jane and her associates professional and intelligent work. My family and I are extremely happy with the service Jane provided. And I would also like to thank Jay Zhang for his professional work and attendance of my landing interview. In fact, before working with Jane, I filed with another immigration consultant and I was told that they were not able to manage my case after more than a year. Luckily, Jane was recommended to me by one of my friends, and she quickly build strong application for me and everything is through perfectly! Great service! Thanks Jane and Jay!

I am beyond happy right now! I had my filed an application in another immigration consultation office and they managed to not work on my file for 3 months and half and not tell me about it! I was furious but one of our family friends suggested Jane Katkova’s firm and they collected every needed document and prepared a very strong application for me, and I got the passport request letter within 17 days. And I should mention that study permit’s processing time for Iranian citizens is 11 weeks, and for me it was 2.5 weeks which has made me very grateful for having this firm working on my file!10/10 recommended. Also great client service.

I had a great experience with Jane and her associates. After one unsuccessful attempt and getting a visitors VISA for my fiance (on our own), we decided it was best to make the commitment to hire professionals. Jane was a FB friend for many years and have been following her posts from time to time. It was only when I needed her services that I remembered to call her. I loved her approach. No nonsense, get it done, get all the docs required for a very comprehensive application so that we can get the multi-entry VISA. Within a week of supplying all documents, I'm very happy to say that my fiance is here for a visit and we are having a blast! We will be in your office to say hello!! Thanks so much again!

Before that, there was an unfortunate experience in obtaining a student visa for my son.Thanks to Jane and her team, my son is now a student of college in Toronto, he is studying his favorite business. Recently he received permission to extend his visa and next year he graduates from college. I also received a guest visa and often come to my son.I express my sincere and deep gratitude to Jane Katkova and her team. Jane as a real strategist clearly defines the tactics for obtaining a positive result. I want to emphasize the well-coordinated work of the hole team.I would like to express my special gratitude to Irina Tulneva, who always calmly and benevolently provides qualified assistance on any issues.Two years ago I said that Jane was the best, now I'm convinced of this and I repeat:Jane, you're the best!

"Well, I would prefer to keep my feedback curt. I have been a client of Jane Katkova & Associates and due to the superlative service experience, I recommended my sister to approach them for securing her Temporary Resident Visa (TRV). I can assert that Jane and her team are the best people on this planet. They made her securing the visa so seamless and quick. Very professional and adept in their approach, they understand the intricacies of the Canada visa process so well. All done. Now, my sister is with me having a splendid time. Happy smiles.

They are truly the immigration expert and spend a lot of time with their client to build a solid case. Over the years in Canada I have met several lawyers which to me most of them consider you as a number or another client, however Jane Katkova and her team know you as a person and they truly care about your situation, getting a successful results and look at the very best approach to each and individual immigration cases. I would without hesitation highly recommend anyone to meet Jane for an appointment and see the difference compare to any other immigration lawyer. Jane is the best!!!

Jane and her team are highly trained professionals and know what they are doing. We initially immigrated with Jane's help in 2005 as a family through Professional Immigration; in late 2013/ beginning of 2014 I started spousal sponsorship application and with Jane's expertise, my husband was granted PR in August 2015 and finally came to Canada despite a few complications and file transfer from Moscow to Warsaw and other delays.Each case is definitely individual and is subject to the IRCC's Officer discretion, but I can assure you that Jane would give her best effort in each case! She takes immigration personally and run her business accordingly.With gratitude,Ksenia & Roman

For various reasons my parents spent more time out of Canada than they had to to maintain their residency status. If not for Jane Katkova, they would hardly won the appeal. Jane is not only seasoned professional with great number of successful representations, but she is very kind and sensitive to her clients' needs. Her employees were very helpful and professional.

Hello, Jane and Associates. I would like to express my endless gratitude to Jane and her staff for helping our dream come true. When I was looking for a professional help to sponsor my parents from Israel, I was lucky to meet a beautiful Lady inside and out - Jane Katkova. We started the process immediately and three weeks ago my parents arrived to Canada as permanent residents. I would like to thank Jane for her professionalism and for being so kind and caring during the long waiting time process. Her office staff was amazing as well. Special thanks goes to Irena Lasker and Irena Tulneva for being supportive, available and very helpful. While in the process, it is very important to get a professional advice promptly and these ladies were always there for me. It was a long journey, but in the end the most important thing is that we succeeded. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend Jane Katkova&Associates. Best regards, Marina.

After very bad experience with 2 previous lawyers I and my husband were recommend to go to Jane Katkova & associates and after a bit more than a year our immigration process is done!! Even though our previous lawyer did lots of mistakes and in the beginning we had many problems, thanks to professional Jane's team and specialy Veronika, everything went smoothly and we got our PR. Despite all problems we had, Veronika was positive all the time, never gave up and didn't let us even think something could go wrong. And what is more important, she not only take care of our case, but also helped us in a very difficult and hard situation of our life not really associated with the immigration process. I personally know at least 3 persons Veronoka was working with, 2 of those cases were successfully completed and 3rd is almost done too. Thank you to all Jane Katkova & Associates team and specialy Veronika and Jane!!!

We are very thankful to all the employees of Jane Katkova & Associates who helped us to prepare H&C application for our now 14 years old orphan girl who lost both her parents. We happened to be the only people in the whole world who could take care of her. We did not even see where to start and what we could do to have her with us in Canada, when we first came to Jane's office. Now after just 6 months since the application was submitted, thanks to Jane, C. found her new home and family in Canada and can live and smile and grow surrounded by our love and care. We are grateful to Jane Katkova-Brown for her professionalism and personal support.

I came across this opportunity to write a review about Jane Katkova on Google and I will do it with big pleasure. My immediate and extended family has been the client of Jane since the beginning of 2000-s. First, Jane brought to Canada my sister as a skilled immigrant from Germany. After, Jane brought to Canada my mother for the family reunification. I referred many friends to Jane, all of them received permanent residence with her help. The last person from my family Jane was dealing with was my aunt. We first dealt with her situation on our own through Canadian Embassy in Turkey and were refused. Jane took the case, appealed the negative decision and WON! She does miracles and always puts her heart to her clients. Thanks to Jane and her team! Special thanks to Irena Lasker, always to the point, accurate and attentive! Yana Pchelkin and family

We were referred to Jane Katkova by our social worker in JIAS. The social worker told us that Jane helped many their clients and that we will not regret. The social worker gave us names of some other lawyers to check out, and we visited all of them. We decided to work with Jane and we never regretted it for a second. My son first received a student visa. And later inspite our situation was very difficult, all of us - my daughter, my son and me received permanent residence. Jane was not only very professional when representing us, but we felt that she really cared. And so did her team. Irena Lasker was great too. It is a year since we received a status. We are very thankful to Jane Katkova @ Associates. If you decided to go to them - you will have best on your side. Alla N.

Corporate Clients that used our Immigration Services

Need answers to your questions about Canada Immigration?
Our immigration experts can help.

The number of international students in Canada recently topped 245,895. This number accounts for 12.5% of all higher education enrollments. This being the case, applications to study in Canada are commonplace. As a result, visa application processes are relatively straightforward.

To qualify for a student visa, applicants must provide evidence of a genuine letter of acceptance from a Canadian school or higher education institution. Visa applicants must then also show evidence of having sufficient funds to pay tuition fees and living expenses while studying.

Typically, study visas are only issued to international students who can provide evidence that they have $10,000 (or more) available after tuition fees are paid per year of study. However, in Quebec, fund requirements are higher, with students being required to have at least $11,000 at their disposal.

Temporary resident visas in Canada are designed to allow third-country nationals to live temporarily in Canada while attending to business. Also suitable for prolonged vacations, a temporary resident visa allows holders to reside in Canada for up to 6-months. However, successful visa applications are dependant on several key factors.

  • Visa applicants need to show proof of having funds equivocal to $1,230 per month of indented stay.
  • Applications for temporary resident permits are only successful when visa officers can be satisfied that applicants do not intend to stay in Canada longer than the duration of their visa.
  • Visa officers will always check the stated purpose of a visit, before making sure this aligns with the provisions of a temporary resident visa.

If visiting Canada on business, a tourist visa will not be sufficient to cover the purpose of your visit. Immigration officials can deny you entry to Canada if they feel that this is the case. Thankfully, we can help secure business-specific Canadian visitor visas.

Business visitor visas are suitable for anyone planning to come to Canada to participate in work training, business meetings, and similar activities. All that a business visa doesn’t do is allow holders to formally participate in the labour market.

Are you a parent or grandparent of someone already residing in Canada? If so, you may be eligible for a Canadian Super Visa. This is a long-term visitor visa which can be used to reside in Canada for up to 10-years. There is just one caveat.

  • To be eligible for a super visa, applicants must prove that they have sufficient funds to last the duration of their intended stay in Canada.
  • Super visa applicants must be sponsored by adult children who ave already acquired permanent residency in Canada.

When applications are successful, super visas allow holders to enter and exit Canada as many times as they like. However, super visas can not be used as part of a path toward permanent residency.

Most Canadian businesses who wish to hire foreign employees, need to demonstrate that they have no alternative option. To do this, employers must obtain a Labour Market Impact Assessment.

LIMAs demonstrate that there is a shortage of skilled and/or unskilled workers in a specific area. Businesses are then able to hire foreign workers and sponsor employee work permit applications.

If you have already applied for and been granted permanent residency in Canada, it will be possible to eventually apply for full Canadian citizenship. Sadly, citizenship applications can be confusing and take considerable time to process. The good news is that we can expedite the process by advising applicants on their eligibility and the application process itself.

Permanent residents of Canada who have fulfilled the requirements to apply for citizenship will benefit from expert guidance to ensure the success of their application. We have several years of experience dealing with complex citizenship matters and offer an unparalleled level of support to those applying for citizenship.

If you are a permanent resident of Canada and have spent at least 1,095 days in Canada over the past 5-years, it is possible to apply for full citizenship. We can start this process for you by explaining applications and helping you gather all the documentation you will need to support your application.

To qualify for Canadian citizenship, some applicants are obligated to complete a residence questionnaire to support applications. In many cases, questionnaires can add up to 1-year to the processing time of a citizenship application. This is because the questionnaire is designed to investigate possible discrepancies in original applications.

Because residency questionnaires can make or break a citizenship application, it is always advisable to seek professional legal assistance. When this is the case, we help make sure that all information returned on questionnaires is factually correct. We can also identify potential problems and advise on how to remedy these.

Citizenship interviews are not a standard part of Canadian citizenship applications. However, applicants may be obligated to attend an interview if immigration officials doubt the legitimacy of an application.

We help permanent residents of Canada prepare for citizenship interviews. This is important as interviews may take place in front of a judge and other Canadian officials.

Canadian citizenship applications can be refused for several reasons. However, applicants can appeal decisions. We help do this by lodging official appeals in Federal Court within 30-days of citizenship applications being rejected.

If you were born in Canada after February 15, 1977, it is not possible to have your Canadian citizenship revoked. However, it is possible to have citizenship revoked if you are a naturalized citizen. Typically, this happens if naturalized citizens are found to have secured citizenship fraudulently. However, revocations can be appealed. This being the case, if you are at risk of losing your Canadian citizenship, make sure to reach out to us for assistance as soon as possible.

During work visa, residency, and citizenship applications, mistakes can be made and important circumstances can fail to be taken into consideration. When this is the case, our immigration law expertise can help successfully appeal immigration decisions. Our legal team can also help individuals respond to immigration officials when concerns are raised over the validity of their current work permit or residency application.

When a Canadian immigration application is denied, applicants have between 15 and 60 days to file an appeal in Federal court. We can file an appeal on your behalf, regardless of why an immigration application has been rejected. In every case, we can also advise on what your next steps should be if appeals fail.

It is sometimes possible for permanent residents of Canada to fail to renew 5-year permanent residency cards in time. Thankfully, when this is the case, our legal teams can appeal residency revocations on behalf of people residing both in and outside of Canada. (In every case, though, appeals will need to be lodged within 60-days of residency lapsing.)

As a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, you have the right to sponsor close family members to join you in Canada. In cases where you have attempted to do so but applications have been denied, we can appeal decisions. All you will need to do is contact us to file an appeal on your behalf within 30-days of an immigration application being denied.

If immigration authorities believe that you have misrepresented facts about yourself in support of a permanent residency application, your residency will be revoked. In every case, though, we can appeal decisions with Canada’s Immigration Appeal Division. However, it is important to act fast. Typically, appeals need to be filed withing 30-days of residency being revoked.

A removal order is a court order requiring a non-Canadian citizen to leave Canada. Orders are usually issued to permanent residents who have had their residency revoked or have overstayed their visa or work permit. In every case, we can help appeal orders by appealing directly Canada’s Immigration Appeal Division within 30-days of a removal order being issued.

If immigration officials believe that an individual has secured residency in Canada fraudulently, residency may be revoked and individuals may be ruled as inadmissible to Canada. Thankfully, we can help appeal inadmissibility rulings.

Canadian immigration officials always attempt to weigh all available evidence and special considerations when making border entry decisions, Because of this, it is not uncommon for a resident or foreign national to attend a special admissibility hearing.

During hearings, immigration and refugee officials interview individuals to asses their suitability for admission to Canada. If you have been invited to a hearing, we can help you prepare and secure a positive outcome.

Detention of immigrants in Canada is rare but occasionally necessary.

Detention can happen when immigration officials believe that an individual may have misrepresented themselves when applying for residency, or may have entered Canada illegally. During this time, we can help detained individuals navigate detention review processes, with the aim of eventually being released from detention.

It is not uncommon for Canadian immigration officials to refuse entry and residency to individuals with a criminal record. However, inadmissible foreign nationals can sometimes qualify for rehabilitation. When this is the case, certain crimes on criminal records will no longer be considered a basis for refusal of entry to Canada.

Rehabilitation means that even people with a criminal record can travel to and reside in Canada. However, some foreign nationals will still fail to qualify for rehabilitation. In some cases, though, individuals who have a compelling reason to visit Canada can be issued with a temporary resident permit.

A wide variety of reasons and personal circumstances can result in a foreign national being ruled as inadmissible to Canada. However, anyone who has been found inadmissible and cannot apply for regular temporary residency can apply for special consideration on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds. We can advise if this option is appropriate for your situation and petition for humanitarian and compassionate exemptions on your behalf.

General Information:

Providing that you are of good character and have resided in Canada for two of the past five years, most 5-year permanent residency renewals can be processed quickly and easily.

Permanent residency cardholders can travel freely to and from Canada whenever they like. However, it is not uncommon for PR cards to expire while traveling overseas. When this is the case, we can secure travel documents which allow cardholders to return to Canada and start the PR card renewal process.

When a permanent residency card renewal is denied, it is still possible to appeal decisions.

Every case is different. However, at Jane Katkova & Associates in Toronto, we can appeal residency decisions on behalf of people both outside and in Canada.

Canada’s Business Immigration Program is specifically designed to encourage investment and job creation in Canada. To accomplish these goals, the program encourages the immigration of skilled entrepreneurs, investors, and business people, who have experience establishing profitable new business ventures.

Canada’s Self-Employed Persons Program is available to anyone engaged in cultural activities or athletics. Applicants must have 2-years’ experience in their field of expertise. Applicants must also be able to prove that they can make a meaningful economic contribution to Canada.

Canada’s Federal Immigration Entrepreneur Program is no longer an active immigration program.

Formerly, the Entrepreneur Program encouraged foreign entrepreneurs to reside and invest in Canada. Sadly, this program was discontinued in 2014. However, at Jane Katkova & Associates in Toronto, we can still help match entrepreneurs with current programs which still offer a pathway to both temporary and permanent residency.

Like the Federal Immigration Entrepreneur Program, Canada’s Federal Immigrant Investor Program (IIP) was discontinued in 2014. However, it is still possible to secure permanent residency in Canada via a variety of provincial programs. At Jane Katkova & Associates, we can help identify what program might be right for your personal and professional circumstances.

Quebec is a predominantly French-speaking province in Canada, which has full jurisdiction over local immigration. At present, several immigration programs are active in Quebec. Many of these are specifically designed to attract business people and entrepreneurs looking to invest and make meaningful, long-term economic contributions to the province.

Contrary to what you might think, moving to Canada is possible, even if you are not in a skilled profession.

Temporary work permits and work visas are available to people of all occupational and educational backgrounds.

Typically, work permit and work visa applicants will need to have a job offer from a Canadian employer. However, work permits and visas are also available to students, business people, and caregivers.

The Temporary Foreign Worker Program in Canada (TFWP) allows Canadian employers to hire skilled and unskilled temporary foreign workers when faced with local labor shortages. To do this, employers need to complete a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). In many cases, it is also possible to extend and renew work permits under this program.

The Canadian Intra-Company Transferee Program is designed to allow businesses in Canada to easily transfer employees from overseas branches and organizations which form part of the same company. When this is the case, employers will not be required to complete a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA).

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) allows American and Mexican citizens to work in Canada temporarily. To qualify for a work permit, applicants will need to have a job offer from a Canadian employer. However, job offers must be related to professions and occupations listed in the NAFTA trade agreement.

The Canadian significant benefit work permit is available to anyone who can demonstrate that they can bring significant economic, cultural, or social benefit to Canada. Typically, applicants are artists, authors, athletes, and entrepreneurs, with proven accomplishment in their area of expertise.

When moving to Canada, it can be hard to leave loved ones and close family behind. However, several family sponsorship visas exist, which can enable you to bring your loved ones with you.

Family sponsorship visas allow citizens and permanent residents of Canada to sponsor relatives to join them in Canada. At Jane Katkova & Associates, we use our immigration expertise to advise on what family sponsorship visa options might apply to your situation.

Becoming a permanent resident of Canada should never come at the expense of leaving your spouse behind. Thankfully, spousal sponsorship visas allow citizens and permanent residents to sponsor a spouse to join them in Canada. The main requirement is that sponsors themselves are 18-years of age or older.

Typically, for someone to sponsor a spouse to enter Canada, they must be legally married. However, Canadian visa options also exist which allow individuals to sponsor common-law partners.

Partners of applicants for common-law sponsorship visas can be the same or different genders. The main condition is that partners must be able to demonstrate that they are in a genuine common-law relationship.

Canada’s Express Entry visa is designed specifically for skilled immigrants who wish to work and live in Canada and apply for permanent residency.

Typically, Express Entry visa applicants will need to provide documented evidence of in-demand work skills, academic qualifications, language skills, and satisfy certain health and financial requirements.

The Express Entry visa process calculates eligibility based on a points system. The more points an Express Entry visa applicant has (usually, 450 to 500), the more likely their chances are of being invited to become a permanent resident of Canada.

To apply under the Express Entry visa scheme as a skilled worker, visa applicants will need to demonstrate a proof of higher education qualifications. Candidates are also required to have relevant skilled work experience, as well as English or French language fluency.

Provincial nomination is a path to permanent residency in Canada, where Express Entry visa holders are nominated by specific Canadian provinces and territories. This immigration path is, therefore, especially suitable for anyone who plans on moving to Canada and settling in a particular province.

Canadian Experience Class (CEC) is a path to permanent residency available to anyone with at least one full year of skilled work experience in Canada. Applicants will also be required to demonstrate proof of 3-year experience in similar employment, good language skills, and a clean criminal record.

Several provinces in Canada experience labor shortages. Employers of foreign workers are, therefore, able to support employee permanent residency applications. To do this, employers will need to conduct a Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) which demonstrates a need to hire foreign workers.

Permanent residency in Canada is not the same as citizenship. Typically, permanent residency is granted for 5-years, after which permanent residency cards will need to be renewed.

For most permanent residents, card renewals are pretty straightforward. However, if you have not resided in Canada for 730 days or more over the past 5 years, renewal applications may be declined.

At Jane Katkova & Associates, we make extending permanent residency cards for five more years as easy as possible. We can also renew permanent residency cards where holders may not have met full renewal requirements due to exceptional circumstances.

The provisions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) allow U.S. citizens to work, study, and reside permanently in Canada. However, U.S. citizens still need to secure appropriate work and residency permits.

When vacationing in Canada, U.S, citizens can do so for up to 6-months without a visa. However, if you plan to work or study, you will need to obtain an appropriate residency document. Typically, most applications are done through Canada’s Express Entry residency program for skilled workers. In this case, and the case of family sponsorship and LIMA applications, we can help you navigate the immigration process.

Our immigration experts specialize in helping U.S. citizens secure both temporary and permanent residency in Canada. We can also help existing permanent residents secure full Canadian citizenship.
