Assisting with All Aspects of Canadian Immigration

When you need to work with a Canadian immigration consultant, turn to the experienced team at Borders Immigration Consultancy. With more than 28 years of experience, Kim and her team offer highly responsive customer service, and they are dedicated to ease the common hassles associated with the immigration process. Above all else, Borders Immigration Consultancy aims to make immigration as seamless and headache-free as possible for you or your business.

Foreign Worker Permits

We assist with all types of foreign worker permits, including those requiring a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) under such streams as high wage/low wage, global talent or agriculture, and all those under that are LMIA-exempt such as professions under the CUSMA (formerly NAFTA), Intra-company Transfers, significant interest/benefits to Canada, and various occupations under Canada's numerous bilateral free trade agreements with other countries.

Emergency Service Requests for Vendors

Foreign vendors with Canadian clientele are often required to travel to Canada to provide technical support services to equipment that they manufacture. Such technical personnel are exempt from various requirements of the Labor Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) process. We may assist with expediting your vendor skilled tradespeoples' entry into Canada.

Business Visitor Services

We offer sound guidance and prepare the necessary supporting documentation for CUSMA, GATS and other free trade agreement issues for businesses and corporations across Canada.

Temporary Resident Visas

There are a number of programs that allow one to attain temporary resident status, including Visitor Visas, Study Permits and Super Visas. We also assist with Criminal Waivers and Applications to Return to Canada (ARCs).

Permanent Residence – Economic Streams

For those looking to relocate to Canada permanently, we help with the complexities of Canada's Express Entry system for the Federal Skill Workers (FSW) Program, the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), and the Federal Skill Trades Class (FSTC) as well as various Provincial Nomination Programs (PNP) (Express entry and non-Express Entry).

Permanent Residence – Family Sponsorship Streams

Family reunification is one of the many objectives of the Immigration & Refugee Protection Act. Being separated from our loved ones is both stressful and financially burdensome – never mind the heartache of the inability to be with them. We offer assistance with Family Sponsorships including spouses, common law and conjugal partners, dependents, as well as parents/grandparents, so as to hasten the reunion.

Employer Compliance Reviews

Your organization needs to remain in complete compliance with all necessary regulations when it comes to foreign workers, which requires regular compliance reviews and integrity service reviews. Our services include on site attendance at your facilities to conduct a complete review and audit of your current documentation, as well as provide training on how to ensure continued compliance. We also offer assistance in the event of an ESDC or IRCC audit.

Letters of Invitation & Affidavits of Support

In all instances, the IRCC requires a letter of invitation and/or an affidavit of support to further support a visitor visa application for a family member or a friend. We assist you with the preparation of these documents, allowing you to meet these strict requirements.

Visa Processing

We provide the consular processing of visas for any country around the world, ensuring the process goes as quickly and smoothly as possible for you.
