Canada has been continuously ranked as one of the top destinations to live and work. At Dhillon & Bhatti Lawyers, our fundamental goal is to help our clients successfully accomplish their immigration-related objectives.

Our Immigration Law Practice provides the following services:

1. Permanent residency under Express Entry Programs

Under Canada’s economic streams for PR, there are three categories a foreign national may fit under. This system is point based. You will be assessed on a number of factors, each equating to a point value, the total of which will be your CRS (comprehensive Ranking Score). 

The following pathways are available under this stream: 

– Canadian Experience Class (CEC)

– Federal Skilled Workers (FSW) 

– Federal Skilled Trades (FST)

Navigating the Express Entry programs is complex. Having an expert team behind you to help you find which program is best suited for you. Contact Dhillon & Bhatti Lawyers to make this process as seamless as possible.

2. Provincial Nomination Programs (PNP)

PNP programs are another option to immigrate to Canada if you are unable to secure enough points to be selected under Express Entry.​ The PNP allows individuals to nominate individuals who wish to immigrate to Canada and who are interested in settling in a particular province. ​

3. Work Permit including Spousal Open Work Permit and Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP)

Spouses and common-law partners of foreign nationals who are authorized to work in Canada in certain managerial, executive or highly skilled occupations may be eligible for spousal work permits. 

Eligible graduates of Designated Learning Institutions recognized by IRCC are eligible to apply for a PGWP. Skilled Canadian work experience in National Occupational Classification (NOC) skill type 0 or skill level A or B that is gained through the PGWPP helps graduates qualify for permanent residence in Canada through the Canadian experience class within Express Entry.

There are many steps involved in applying for a study permit. For more information on how to apply for a study permit, please contact our lawyers to schedule an appointment.

6. Refugee Claims and Humanitarian Applications

Refugee Claims: Canada has been offering protection to eligible individuals who are fleeing their home countries on account of well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion and if the individual is sent back to their country of persecution they would be at a risk of torture, risk to their life, or unfair punishment. 

Humanitarian Applications: Section 25 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act allows individuals to apply for permanent residency under humanitarian and compassionate grounds as an exceptional category. the IRCC considers many factors such as best interest of children, ties to Canada etc under this category.

7. Immigration Appeals and Federal Court Applications

8. Deportation and Inadmissibility issues

You may receive a Removal Order from IRCC or CBSA. There are three type of Removal Orders.:

  1. Departure Order 
  2. Exclusion Order

Family reunification is one of the objectives of the Canadian Immigration policy as the number of immigrants in Canada increase. For being eligible under these programs an individual must be a parent, grandparent, dependent child, spouse or common law partner and lone surviving partner.
