Happy International Women's Day

March 8 is International Women's Day. This year's theme is how will you #PressForProgress?

Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. There’s a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

Ackah Business Immigration Law was founded in 2010 by Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah, and we are currently a law firm comprised of women. I am fortunate to work with many amazing women, both within the firm and as clients. I continue to be inspired by my female colleagues and I appreciate the support of all the women in my life. Ackah Law is also proud to represent immigrant women and their families as a part of the work that we do.

Congratulations to all the amazing professional women, female business owners, women entrepreneurs and working women who contribute to our communities. I'm encouraged to welcome the coming generation of young women who will continue our fight for equality and to #PressForProgress.

When I decided to open a Canadian branch of Bright Solutions for Dyslexia, my CPA found two attorneys who could assist me. One was Evelyn Ackah. The other attorney was part of a very large, well-known law firm in Vancouver.

I spoke with both of them and chose Evelyn Ackah -- and I do not regret it.

Evelyn responds rapidly and personally, by phone or email -- even on weekends.

She explained my options in easy-to-understand layman's terms, she created everything I needed quickly, and she helped prepare me for the business immigration interview.

Everything went extremely well, and I was granted the maximum length work permit.

Evelyn Ackah's firm helped me complete that entire process within 2 months. It took the other large law firm more than 3 weeks just to schedule an initial phone call -- and I finally got their bill for that phone call AFTER I already had my work permit.

If you want fast, professional, and accurate legal service, I highly recommend Evelyn Ackah.

– Susan Barton, Founder Bright Solutions for Dyslexia
