The same qualities that allowed Ryan to excel in his previous career as a fly fishing guide have come in handy as an immigration lawyer: focus, persistence, knowledge and a natural ability to guide his clients with clarity.

Ryan joined the partnership at McCrea in 2020 after more than 15 years leading the immigration practice group of a leading regional firm. In addition to his practice in Vancouver, he maintains strong connections to the Kelowna area and advises a number of Okanagan-based companies and individuals, while also regularly taking advantage of the famous Okanagan powder on the region’s ski hills (another one of his former vocations was as a ski instructor).

Ryan has a reputation as one of Canada’s top immigration lawyers, being recognized by “Best Lawyers Canada” every year since 2019. We think you’ll appreciate his expertise and his sense of humour as much as we do.

Contact Ryan for advice on corporate immigration and compliance, work permits, skilled permanent residence, spousal sponsorships and citizenship applications in the Lower Mainland, the Okanagan and beyond.
