How Relocation Firms Can Streamline the Expat Process to Canada

Canada has many opportunities for business growth and welcomes newcomers who want to help grow Canada's economy and create jobs for Canadians. Canada's government has implemented many innovative programs to streamline immigration to Canada and expedite the process.

HR Cannot Provide Employee Immigration Services

Canada Human Resources personnel cannot provide immigration services to their employees – it’s contrary to Canada regulations. Canada’s immigration laws require that anyone who provides immigration services must be members of a regulatory body. The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act sets penalties for anyone, including an HR professional, who breaks the law. An HR professional who performs any of the prohibited activities faces the possibility of fines of up to $100,000 and up to two years in jail.

HR professionals cannot complete and or submit immigration applications on behalf of an employee or a candidate, and they are not permitted to communicate with IRCC or Canada Border Services Agency on behalf of an employee or job candidate. This applies even if the person is a current or prospective employee of the company for which the HR professional works.

At our immigration law firm, we exclusively practice immigration law. We have immigration lawyers as well as immigration consultants and paralegals who are supervised by immigration lawyers. As an immigration lawyer, Managing Lawyer Evelyn Ackah is highly regulated by the Canadian Law Society and Law Society of Alberta. Immigration Consultants must be members of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council, the governing body for immigration consultants in Canada.

5 Reasons Relocation Companies Should Hire An Immigration Lawyer

Immigration law is becoming more complex and challenging every day. Immigration applications can be refused due to minor oversights and omissions that can delay or negatively impact your clients' business. Not using an experienced immigration lawyer can put your business at risk.

Ackah Business Immigration Law can assist you to prepare for a Compliance Review/Inspection and ensure that your organization complies with Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (LMIA) and the International Mobility Program (LMIA exempt) requirements before you receive a call from the government.

Our Employment Law and Human Resources Advisory services assist our corporate immigration clients with planning for terminations, layoffs and drafting employment and consulting agreements to ensure you are well protected.
