It is hard enough in the normal course of business to obtain permanent resident status in Canada. Imagine the difficulty in gaining that status with a 36 year old developmentally disabled daughter.
...The Ackah Firm was with us every step of the way. They gave us good advice, managed the paperwork and kept my husband’s employer informed.
...permanent residence for parents and child came through fully six months before the temporary status expired.

"We found Ackah Law to be diligent and knowledgeable in advising our firm on foreign worker options. We were impressed with their hands-on approach to ensure personnel were properly briefed and supported prior to and at the time of entry."
Rolf Wentzel, COO
