I have had the pleasure of working with Evelyn Ackah on various immigration, LMIA, permanent residency and border issues for the past seven years. Evelyn and her team are the ultimate resources for any employer seeking to navigate the ever changing legal climate in a timely and professional manner. Evelyn’s wealth of knowledge, experience and industry connections coupled with her ability to simplify complex legal processes have made her my ‘go-to’ resource for all issues pertaining to business immigration.

Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah, founder and managing lawyer of Ackah Business Immigration Law, explains why it’s important to support the immigrant community and hire foreign-trained professionals who are newcomers to Canada. As a Canada and US immigration lawyer, Evelyn recommends employers participate in the Immigrant Services Calgary program to provide internships to skilled foreign professionals to give them Canadian work experience, and the many benefits of hiring foreign-trained professionals.
When Nigerian lawyer Grace Akpan moved to Calgary, Canada, Immigrant Services Canada helped her find employment with Ackah Business Immigration Law, and soon after was offered a position as an Articling Student by Managing Lawyer Evelyn Ackah. Grace has since been offered a permanent position once she is called to the Alberta bar.
Ackah Law is committed to supporting the immigrant community in Calgary and across Canada by volunteering time and providing sponsorships to community organizations.
