Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah Speaks to APEGBC on NAFTA: Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of BC- APEGBC

Canada immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah, founder and managing lawyer at Ackah Business Immigration Law, will speak to Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of British Columbia (APEGBC) on NAFTA requirements for working in the US on September 27, 2017:

Have you ever considered working in the United States and not sure how to begin? Under NAFTA law, certain professionals like engineers, geoscientists, and engineering technicians can often obtain “Trade NAFTA” (TN) Visas to work in the United States (US), once they receive an employment offer from an appropriate US employer. Alternatively, experienced professionals may be engaged as “consultants” under NAFTA rules and share their expertise with US-based businesses. This seminar will review all viable US immigration options for Canadian and Mexican professionals.

Canada Bill C-23: Contact Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah at Ackah Business Immigration Law- contact@ackahlaw.com

Immigration experts are concerned about the legal implications of Bill C-23 for the current 12 million Canadians who go through preclearance at Canada airports. The bill was first negotiated between the governments of former prime minister Stephen Harper and former US president Barack Obama as part of the Beyond the Border agreement. Canadian federal government has pointed to the fact that the bill establishes that preclearance officers’ duties and functions will be subject to Canadian law.

Bill C-23 would give preclearance officers who work for U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Canadian soil the power to question, search and detain Canadians travelling to the United States via preclearance facilities at select Canadian airports.
