If you want to move to Canada hire an immigration lawyer says a new report in The Star. Immigration lawyers have a significantly higher success rate versus hiring an immigration consultant or filling out the application themselves. “Many immigration consultants have only completed online courses at a community college. The education and training is just not comparable.” The data from The Star was obtained through an access to information request, and states:

  • 10.4% of immigration applications prepared by an immigration lawyer were rejected
  • 18.9% of all applications were rejected
  • 19.3% of those who complete their own immigration application were refused
  • 18% of immigration applications prepared by an immigration consultant were rejected

Canadian immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah understands why people often try to complete their immigration application themselves but advises that mistakes can be costly and stressful. If you want the best chance for your immigration application to be approved, if you want to move to Canada hire an immigration lawyer.

I have 20 years experience as an immigration lawyer, and that’s the only type of law I practice. As an immigrant to Canada myself, immigration isn’t just a job to me – its personal.

Our experience means we can identify potential problems in your application, and advise you on your best options.

Conference organizers report that international researchers and scientists traveling to Canada for a global artificial intelligence conference experienced visa backlog problems and that visa issues damage Canada’s AI technology goals. Prominent international scientists and AI researchers traveling to the NeurIPS conference in Montreal in early December did not have their visas processed on time or were denied visas. As reported by The Star, most of those whose temporary visas whose visas were caught in the backlog were African researchers.

Organizations including Black in AI and SOCML have l0st participants due to visa issues. Canadian scientists and conference organizers took to social media to report their frustrations with the Canadian government and said that the visa problems for researchers and scientists will damage Canada’s reputation as a technology hub and may push AI conferences to avoid Canada.

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says the Canadian government must streamline the visa bureaucratic maze while maintaining immigration standards, and that we need to closely monitor the government’s current AI immigration pilot program:

Canada enjoys the benefits of a world-class tech community, many of them foreign workers and highly skilled and educated technology ex[erts who moved to Canada. I have seen life-altering application mistakes happen time and again, and it’s time to change the bureaucratic maze. Plus, new research says the use of AI – artificial intelligence – may in fact discriminate against immigrants.

Recent changes to Canada’s IEC program mean the Australian work holiday visa increased to age 35, from the previous maximum age of 30, for Australians to get visas to work and travel in Canada. Canadians aged 18 to 35 can work and travel to Australia through the International Experience Canada (IEC) program. Canada has agreements with over 30 countries for youth to work and travel abroad.

Watch: 3 young Canadians talking their IEC experiences working and traveling abroad.

There are 3 ways to participate in Canada’s IEC program:

  • Working Holiday (travel and work): Participants are eligible to apply for an open work permit to allow them to work for any employer or location in Canada to subsidize their stay as they travel and discover the country.
  • Young Professionals (career development): Participants are eligible to apply for an employer-specific work permit to help them gain professional work experience in Canada.

Canadian Permanent Residents are not entitled to the same rights and privileges as citizens. A recent Canada legal case involving a permanent resident convicted of robbing a bank highlighted that Canada Permanent Residents convicted of a crime face deportation. On appeal, the court reduced the original sentence of 18 months to 6 months so the bank teller convicted of bank robbery would not be deported to her home country of Morocco, saying the court was “entitled to take into account the severe collateral immigration consequence that would result from a sentence over six months.”

Immigration Lawyer Evelyn Ackah emphasizes that Canadian residents are not entitled to the same rights and privileges as citizens:

Becoming a citizen of Canada is a privilege that you must apply and qualify for. Canada is a wonderful country that offers a high quality of life and good educational and economic opportunities. Many people want to live in Canada and become permanent or temporary residents, which offers many benefits but not the same rights and privileges as a naturalized citizen. 


Before you can become a Canadian citizen, you first have to be a Canadian Permanent Resident. Permanent residents in Canada are not Canadian citizens but they have been granted permission to live and work in Canada without any limit on the length of their stay.

There are no legal differences between naturalized citizens and citizens born in Canada.
