We have been using the services of Ackah Business Immigration Law for over 5 years. Evelyn and her team have provided vital and critical help to us in navigating the complicated and ever changing rules on how to bring qualified and talented dancers to Canada as foreign workers to become part of our company. Diversity enriches what we do and these dancers are essential to our artistic success and community outreach. Evelyn’s team lead the application process, take care of all the administration and provides constant support throughout the process. As a small registered charity having this expertise available is instrumental to our success we applaud Ackah Business Immigration for generously supplying their professional services to us pro bono. Their involvement helps us to continue to enrich lives by engaging people in exploring, evolving and promoting the art of jazz dance.

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.
