Canada has changed lives including mine. In 2007, I immigrated in Canada through the Live-In Caregiver program. Being an immigrant myself, I experienced the initial and ongoing challenges that immigrants have commencing from application through to settlement process. Given the complexity of the Canadian Immigration system along with the constant change of policies that governs immigration, I developed passion to help people understand and adapt the challenges of the Canadian Immigration policies and regulations. I pride myself with extensive knowledge equipped from Ashton College Vancouver with my profession as a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant. My goal is to make your immigration to Canada a memorable experience gearing towards a brighter future.

Perseverance and determination has launched my career in Canada. My Bachelor Degree in Economics taught me to appreciate the importance of planning for our future. That said, I am determined to share what Canada has offered me. Success is not just luck, it is doing the right way with the right immigration firm.
