Canadian Citizenship

Becoming a Canadian citizen gives you additional rights, benefits and protections that are not available to Permanent Residents, including the right to vote and the right to hold public office. Citizens are no longer required to meet residency and other requirements of Permanent Residents.

There are many differences between Canada Permanent Residents and Canadian Citizenship. PRs who do not become citizens are not entitled to the same rights and privileges as citizens. Penalties for committing a crime in Canada for citizens are different from permanent residents and temporary residents - including permanent deportation from Canada.

In 2010 Softtek was a new foreign company in the Canadian Market and although we were already very experienced with immigration matters in other countries, Canada was an exciting challenge that we needed to take with the best immigration support and our search led to Ms. Evelyn Ackah, whom at that time decided to start her own law firm. Working with Ms. Evelyn Ackah and her team has been a very pleasant experience, they understand our business and support our needs very professionally. Their support has been critical for our operation in Canada, we trust their knowledge, discipline and commitment. We hope to continue working with them for many years.
