Thinking about importing a car from Mexico to Canada? There is some leg work involved. Here is what you need to know about the import process.
Canada uses a points-based system called Express Entry to rank immigration applications. Applicants with the highest scores are selected from the pool of candidates and invited to apply for permanent residence in Canada. If you are a skilled immigrant who wants to immigrate to Canada, Express Entry may be a great option for you.
Temporary entry to Canada is easier if you are a citizen of the Unites State or Mexico coming to Canada as a “business person.” The Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA) simplifies the process for professionals, tradespeople, investors, executives, and business visitors who want to work temporarily in Canada.
Refusals of immigration applications are common, and it has also become common to apply for reconsiderations, but exactly is a reconsideration of a decision and what is the legal test?
The Federal Court of Canada has recently ruled on a two stage process required by an immigration officer when assessing a reconsideration of a negative decision.
The general consequence of a finding of misrepresentation in immigration applications is very severe – a five-year ban on admission to Canada. The jurisprudence is settled that s40(1)(a) of the IRPA is to be given a broad interpretation in order to promote its underlying purpose. It is important to note that the exception to this rule is narrow.
A foreign national who wants to work in Canada needs a work permit or an authorization to work without a permit. Canada offers several immigration options.
Are you a self-employed person who wants to immigrate to Canada? You may qualify for Canada’s “Self-Employed Persons Program.” When your application under this program is approved, you get a permanent resident visa. You can live and work in Canada, and you will also become eligible to apply for Canadian citizenship after you settle here.
Are you a foreign entrepreneur with an innovative business idea for the Canadian market? Do you have the skills and experience to build a business in Canada? If so, the Start-Up Visa Program may be a great option for you. The program offers a unique opportunity to build a business, make a profit, and immigrate to Canada.
The number of temporary residence applications processed by IRCC has increased to over 2 million. Due to the new volumes of cases the refusal rate for applications has increased radically.
IRCC has revealed that they use a notes generator: Chinook to help an officer refuse temporary resident applications. After an Officer chooses to refuse a file, they are provided access to this tool to help choose the reasons. Officers are not required to disclose all the reasons of a refusal, but only to choose the more general applicable to the case.
