Immigration Law Definition
Immigration lawyers work with corporations and other employers to help clients understand the legal steps that must first be followed before bringing key employees to work in Canada. They can assist with the immigration documents required and they can identify how immigration law might affect their business dealings.
Immigration lawyers identify the reasons why a foreign national may not be permitted entry to Canada and advise on eligibility, and where applicable, options to overcome these challenges (e.g. criminal inadmissibility issues). Immigration lawyers assist their clients who require skilled employees to address labour shortages in Canada with the requisite government filings and advise on strategies to assist clients’ employees in maintaining legal status in Canada.
Immigration lawyers also work with individuals to help them understand the steps required to sponsor a loved one, whether they are eligible for permanent residence status in Canada (an area of law that changes frequently), which tests immigration officers use to assess whether an individual may be granted entry to Canada, as well as a variety of other immigration and cross-border related matters. An immigration lawyer can also advise clients on the process of obtaining permanent residence, work permits, study permits, and reuniting family once eligibility has been assessed.
Experienced immigration lawyers have built relationships with applicable government departments in the immigration or cross-border process, including with Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada, Service Canada, Provincial Departments, and the Canada Border Services Agency.
