Hello and thank you for approving me to join the forum. I applied for a resident visa before and I was denied maybe because I chose the wrong agency as they didn't do their job after I paid them the required payment. Then last year, I applied directly to the Canadian Embassy for a tourist visa. My aunt, who is already a Canadian citizen, told me that she will hire a lawyer that could make my tourist visa into a resident visa. The problem was I got denied the second time and the reason this time is that I might not come back to where I'm living right now. I have completed all the requirements the embassy needed but I guess they can smell in my application that I will not come back. My question is, is it really possible to change a tourist visa into a resident visa?
