Express Entry Draw, The Latest News

2021-02-16T14:55:19-04:00

Express Entry Draw: February 13, 2021 In a historic Express Entry draw held on Saturday, February 13, the Canadian Government invited 27,332 candidates to apply for permanent residence in Canada. We call this draw a historic one because never in the history of Express Entry so many people have been invited to apply at once. Usually, the number is limited at 3,000 - 5,000. This draw was held only for candidates in the Canadian Experience Class, and the CRS score required was also historically low - only 75 points! This is truly unprecedented, and it proves again how [...]

CoPR holders are still unable to enter Canada due to travel restrictions

2020-12-21T16:22:31-04:00

CoPR holders are still unable to enter Canada due to travel restrictions When the Government of Canada introduced travel restrictions in March 2020, it allowed travelling to Canada only to those COPR holders who were approved for immigration and travel to Canada before March 18, 2020. What this means is that all those who received their COPRs (Confirmation of Permanent Residence) after March 18, 2020, are stuck outside Canada, unable to enter the country. By this time, for many COPRs have already expired and they require re-authorization to enter Canada, Immigration, Refugees & Citizenship Canada (IRCC), Canada’s immigration ministry, [...]

Appealing a Refusal of Sponsorship Application

2020-11-23T17:40:29-04:00

Appealing a Refusal of Sponsorship Application Family sponsorships are a very popular pathway to immigrate to Canada. Although there is some delay right now in review of sponsorship applications by IRCC, Canada remains committed to reuniting the loved ones and prioritizes such cases. Let’s talk a bit about family sponsorships today. If you have applied to sponsor a family member and this family member’s application for permanent residence was refused, you might consider appealing this refusal in the Immigration Appeal Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada. An often reason for refusal is inadmissibility of the sponsored [...]

We have just won a Humanitarian & Compassionate Application!

2020-11-19T00:12:49-04:00

We won a Humanitarian & Compassionate Application in November! In the times of COVID-19 pandemic, winning a humanitarian case becomes critically important, because it is no longer a question of separation of relatives, of hardship, now it is also a question of the very human lives. Many of our humanitarian & compassionate clients cannot risk exposure to the virus while traveling back to their country of origin, so for them the decision on their H&C case is literally a life-or-death decision. A positive decision means a client gets to stay in Canada with their family, and the value of [...]
