Our Services

As a Canadian Immigration Law Firm which has been in operation for almost 20 years, Canadim has a range of legal departments providing personalized guidance for Canada’s many immigration pathways.

Express Entry Department

Canada’s major system for accepting economic immigrants is Express Entry, which manages applications to the Federal Skilled Worker (FSW), Federal Skilled Trades (FST), and Canadian Experience Class (CEC) programs, as well as most Provincial Nomination Programs (PNPs). Canadim has an expansive department of legal specialists ready to assess your eligibility and assist you with achieving immigration success through whichever Express Entry pathway best suits your needs.

Quebec Department

The province of Quebec operates its own immigration programs separate from all other provinces. As a Quebec-based law firm, we have a department dedicated to servicing Quebec Immigration clients. In recent years, the Canadim Team has successfully secured permanent residence for hundreds of families through the Quebec Skilled Worker (QSW) program. From start to finish, our lawyers provide full-service support to help you navigate the QSW pathway.

International Student Program

Completing studies in Canada is a strong first step to becoming a Canadian permanent resident. Receiving a Canadian educational credential can make you eligible for work permits, Express Entry programs, and PNPs. Canadim’s International Student Program department is fully staffed to assist you from picking a school and program, to gaining admission to a school, to securing your study visa.

Family Sponsorship Department

For many Canadian citizens and permanent residents, Canada’s family sponsorship immigration program can help their loved ones reunite with them in Canada. At Canadim, we recognize the importance of family connection, an importance which is mirrored in the efforts of our family sponsorship department. If you are seeking to sponsor your spouse, child, parent, or grandparent, our legal sponsorship specialists will assist you every step of the way.

Business Department

The Canadian government provides a wealth of immigration opportunities for those able to contribute to Canada’s economic growth. We at Canadim recognize the vital role entrepreneurs, investors, and business owners play in strengthening the economy through immigration.
