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.

The Canadian government announced increased annual immigration admissions and Canada will welcome 350,000 immigrants in 2021, primarily via economic immigration programs to address skills shortages and gaps in the labour market.

Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen discussed Canada’s three-year immigration plan in the announcement on October 31, 2018, and said that “economic immigration is badly needed in areas across the country that are short on workers and long on older residents:”

This plan is making us very competitive in the global market. It enables us to continue to be competitive, it enables us to continue to present Canada as a welcoming country and to position us to continue to be (a leader) in skills attraction.

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says Canada needs more qualified workers to move to Canada and help grow our economy:

This plan is to make us very competitive in the global market. It enables us to continue to be competitive and to present Canada as a welcoming country for skilled professionals. If you want to move to Canada, apply now as a temporary foreign worker via Canada’s Global Talent Stream, which promises a 2-week fast-track for qualified applicants, then look at your options to become a permanent resident.

Do you want to move to Canada to be with your spouse? Are you married to or in love with a Canadian? Do you want to move to Canada to finally be together? 

Ackah Law is offering a 15% discount
on all Spousal Sponsorship applications

from Nov 1 – Dec 31 2018
Follow your heart all the way to Canada! 

 

Move to Canada to Be With Your Spouse!
The spousal sponsorship process averages less than one year.

Ackah Law offers flat free pricing on most immigration cases,
so you are never surprised or caught unprepared. 

What is Spousal Sponsorship?

The Family Class Application (Spousal Sponsorship path) is a way for a permanent resident or citizen of Canada to sponsor their spouse or common-law partner (including same-sex partner) to immigrate to Canada and become a permanent resident. Canada strongly supports family reunification and keeping families together whenever possible. The processing of Family Class applications is given a high priority by IRCC.

Per Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) family sponsorship regulations, you can sponsor a spouse or partner to become a permanent resident of Canada if:

  • You are a Canadian citizen, registered in Canada as an Indian, or a permanent resident of Canada
  • You’re 18 years old or older
  • You live in Canada
  • You can prove you have enough income to provide basic needs for your spouse or partner’s dependent children.
  • You are not disqualified to sponsor a spouse by IRCC.

Per IRCC the requirements to be sponsored are:

  • The sponsored person must be at least 18 years of age.
  • The relationship with the sponsor must be real, and not just to become a permanent resident of Canada.

How to Sponsor Your Spouse to Move to Canada

This application to move to Canada to be with your spouse or partner has the best chance to be successful with the help of a knowledgeable and experienced immigration professional. They can help you to understand any points of confusion or overcome any issues that may pose a challenge to the application process. You can find the application packages at the IRCC web pages for spouses in Canada and those outside of the country. The Canadian government investigates allegations of marriage fraud and convenience for immigration reasons, which is a crime in Canada.

To qualify for a visa to move to Canada through the spousal sponsorship immigration program, the sponsor and sponsored person must prove that their relationship qualifies under one of three categories:

  • Spouse
  • Common-law Partner
  • Conjugal Partner

NOTE: Canada recognizes same-sex marriage, and same-sex partners may be eligible to apply under any of the above three categories, provided they meet all eligibility requirements.

Step 1 – You must then apply to serve as a sponsor. This is a two-stage process that begins with your application to the Case Processing Center (CPC).

  • There is an application for spouses already living in Canada (Inland Sponsorship) as well as a separate application for spouses living outside of the country (Outland Sponsorship).
  • Those who are applying outside of Canada will have to wait for the CPC to send the application to the nearest Canadian visa office for processing.

Step 2 – Your spouse or partner must also submit an application for permanent residence.

Any eligible spouses or partners in Canada who are applying to become a permanent resident through sponsorship of their spouse are permitted to work while they wait for the processing to be completed. The IRCC issues “open work permits” to those who have applied for permanent residency from within Canadian borders.

IRCC will process the majority of complete applications (meaning, those with all the necessary supporting documents) within one year.

Make Canada your new home soon!
The spousal application process takes less than one year.

Ackah Law is offering a 20% discount

Ackah Law offers flat free pricing on most immigration cases,

What is Express Entry?

Express Entry is Canada’s skilled-worker immigration application system, launched in January 2015, to attract high-skilled foreign workers and former international students who want to become a Canadian permanent resident and whose in-demand skills are needed by employers across the country.

Ackah Business Immigration Law offers Express Entry – Permanent Residence Services: 

Express Entry Application Process

Step 1 – Potential Candidates must complete an  Express Entry Profile

Step 2 – The highest-ranking candidates in the pool will be invited to apply for Permanent Residence

Candidates will be ranked against others in the pool using a point-based system called the Comprehensive Ranking System – CRS. Points are awarded using the information in their profile.

Candidates with the highest scores in the pool will be issued an Invitation to Apply. Candidates will be awarded points for:

  • a job offer, with or without LMIA, or
  • skills and experience factors.

A candidate can get additional points for:

  • a nomination by a province or territory, or
  • a Canadian degree, diploma or certificate

A candidate can get further additional points for:

  • having strong French language skills, with more additional points going to candidates who also have English language skills, or
  • having siblings in Canada

These additional points will make a candidate rank high enough to be invited to apply at the next eligible round of invitations.

If someone is invited to apply, they have 60 days to submit an application for Permanent Residence.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada will process the majority of complete applications (meaning, those with all the necessary supporting documents) in six months or less.

Candidates can stay in the pool for up to 12 months. If they do not get an Invitation to Apply for permanent residence within 12 months of submitting an Express Entry profile, they may submit a new profile. If they still meet the criteria, they can re-enter the pool. This will prevent backlogs and ensure quick processing times.

Make Canada your new home soon!
The application process takes less than one year.

Canada’s aging population and economy are a major concern for the Canadian government:

In 1971 there were 6.6 people of working age for each senior, 
but by 2012 that ratio had gone to 4.2 to 1 and 
projections show it will be at 2 to 1 by 2036.  

Quebec’s new government came into office October 15, the Coalition Avenir Québec – QAC. Global News reports their platform “promises to slash the number of immigrants coming into the province and to force them to take tests assessing their knowledge of the French language and of the values outlined in Quebec’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah says,

Immigrants can help Canada’s aging population and economy. We need to attract qualified immigrants to Canada, and provide resources to help them successfully integrate into the Canadian way of life. Immigrants have skills, ability and knowledge that are needed to help grow our aging population and economy. People from around the globe want to move to Canada and build their lives here and help build a stronger Canada. Our quality of life and values in Canada are very appealing to immigrants and entrepreneurs who want to move to Canada; our cost of living, education system and healthcare are excellent.  

Canada is actively implementing programs to recruit both highly educated, skilled foreign workers as well as low-skilled workers for farm, blue collar and labour jobs in response to economic issues and Canada’s aging population:

US border patrol’s policy on cannabis and cross-border business and travel is a major concern for Canadians as legalization nears. Not only are Canadian marijuana users at risk, Canadian investors and workers in the US cannabis industry also face barriers to entering the United States. In response to the concern, the United States has released Customs updates for Canada marijuana growers.

Canada’s new marijuana legalization laws that go into effect October 17, 2018, have the potential to permanently bar anyone who invests, works in or buys marijuana legally in Canada from ever entering the United States. On October 10, U.S. Customs and Border Protection revised their policy and clarified that policy in a statement:

“A Canadian citizen working in or facilitating the proliferation of the legal marijuana industry in Canada, coming to the U.S. for reasons unrelated to the marijuana industry will generally be admissible to the U.S.”

According to The Star,

Canadian businesspeople or investors with ties to the American cannabis industry will still risk inadmissibility if those links are made apparent to CBP officers. Likewise, Canadians with criminal histories related to pre-legalization cannabis — or those who have admitted past cannabis use to CBP officers — will still be eligible for border bans.

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah is concerned about the impact Canada’s new marijuana laws will have on cross-border business.

Never lie about marijuana use at the border crossing, but instead refuse to answer any questions about marijuana use. The US border agency’s revision to their marijuana policy is good for Canadians and good for cross-border business. However, Canadians who legally invest in, work in or use marijuana in Canada still face problems crossing the border for business or personal travel. If you lie to a border agent, you may be banned for life from entering the United States. If you refuse to answer, you may be turned away at the border that one time.
