quotation-39627_1280

I’m happy to tell you a good news. My son and I had received our new PR card yesterday. When I was filling in the renew form, I got your great help. Including some important notes and details, you are very patient and careful to help me modify and correct. so that’s why I received my new card just three and a half month. I would like to say thank you so much for helping me to renew my son and I PR card.

-A Newcomer Program client

I would like to thank you for all your efforts and teachings that had helped me in getting a good job. I joined this course on a recommendation of my friend and was very impressed to see everyone’s efforts in making our (new immigrants) lives successful in Canada. I really appreciate and respect your dedication towards your work.  You valuable suggestions for resume making, interviews and job search process worked as a magic wand for me. 

-An Employment Program client

From our team to you and yours, thank you for your hospitality and this wonderful opportunity to give back to our community and to the organization.  Your team is professional and this was a wonderful experience for all of us. We are looking forward to doing this again next year.

 

-An Employer after a networking event with us

Thank you for all your efforts regarding my daughter’s case which was really complicated and one of a kind. But your guidance made it all the way really helpful. I was unsure initially because of complexity of this case but your expertise made all the difference. You recommended to put her application under Public Policy and prepared a strong case. Within 4 months of putting that application she was asked for her passport and finally got an Immigration visa and landing paper.I am extremely grateful to you and your office staff who helped us big time in reuniting my family.
