Having an experienced and knowledgeable Immigration Lawyer, whether the client is in or outside of Canada, is essential when dealing with immigration authorities. Keeping up with the latest developments in immigration law, rules, policies and procedures for processing various immigrant visa applications, work permits and study permits is absolutely necessary in order for an effective immigration lawyer to obtain successful results on the client's behalf. As well, when a client is facing inland enforcement proceedings such as a detention review, an admissibility hearing or an appeal at the Immigration and Refugee Board or Federal Court, advocacy skills are paramount in order to successfully argue the client's case.

An Immigration Lawyer represents:

� Skilled individuals and business people who wish to immigrate and make a positive contribution to Canada;
� Family members wishing to migrate to Canada in order to be reunited with their relatives in Canada;
� Individuals requiring immigration assistance with corporate transfers;
� Individuals in Canada who wish to change or regularize their immigration status;
� Individuals in Canada who may be brought before immigration admissibility or deportation proceedings.

An experienced immigration lawyer can prepare and present an impressive package that highlights the client's most positive qualities to Canada Immigration officials, thoroughly prepare the client for the interview at the Canadian Visa Office or Canada Immigration, or represent the client who may be facing enforcement proceedings in Canada.

Skilled Worker, Canadian Experience, Provincial Nominee, Business, Family Class

If the client is eligible to apply to immigrate to Canada under one of these programs, an experienced Immigration Lawyer ought to prepare an application package that places the client's qualifications and personal situation in the best light for consideration by Canadian immigration officials.

Applications for Canadian Permanent Residence are considered by visa officers at Canadian Consulates or Embassies around the world. To be an effective Immigration Lawyer, keeping current with the applicable regulations, rules and guidelines is only part of the job, as there is also a discretionary component allowed to be exercised by the decision-making officer. An Immigration Lawyer's experience in preparing and submitting these types of applications, as well as dealing with various immigration and visa officers, ensures quality representation throughout the application process.

Visitor Visa, Work Visa or Study Visa to Canada

If the client is applying to visit, work or study in Canada (temporary residence), an Immigration Lawyer should assess the client's situation, determine the most suitable program and prepare a complete application package for consideration by Canadian Immigration officials.

Applications for Canadian Temporary Residence are generally considered by visa officers at Canadian Consulates or Embassies around the world. In some cases, an application may be filed from within Canada. Although the determination by visa officers and immigration officers are governed by regulations, rules and guidelines, there is also a discretionary component allowed to be exercised by the decision-maker. With an Immigration Lawyer's experience in representing clients in these types of cases, the client is provided with knowledgeable, quality representation throughout the application process.

Sponsorship, Humanitarian and Compassionate Grounds, Criminal Rehabilitation

If the client is already in Canada, an Immigration Lawyer should review the particular situation and determine if the client qualifies for one of these applications to become a permanent resident of Canada.

These discretionary applications are considered by Immigration Officers at Canada Immigration Centres. Although it is important to be thoroughly familiar with applicable regulations, rules and guidelines, it is equally important for an Immigration Lawyer to be able to address the relevant circumstances of the client's specific personal situation. Experience in dealing with various immigration officers in these types of cases provides the client with effective representation throughout the application process.

Detention, Admissibility and Appeal Division Hearings, Federal Court Applications

If the client is facing one of these immigration proceedings, an Immigration Lawyer can provide the client with effective representation in arguing the case at the review, hearing or appeal.

The key factors for an Immigration Lawyer in successfully arguing the client's case in court or at an immigration tribunal are preparation, knowledge and experience. An Immigration Lawyer who is thoroughly prepared with the facts of the client's case, the relevant legislative provisions and case law is essential to successfully preparing the client for the hearing or appeal.
