One of the biggest decisions you will ever take in your life may well be the decision to up and move to a whole new country. We know that if you choose to immigrate to Canada, it will be one of the best decisions of your life. The benefits of becoming a permanent resident are fantastic. The ultimate goal of permanent residency is what motivates most foreigners to move to Canada. While the immigration process may seem straightforward, sometimes the smallest thing can derail everything.
A Nurse Facing Deportation From Canada
An ICU nurse from the Philippines, Miss Christine Vega, is facing deportation from Canada after having not only worked as a registered nurse in Canada for two years, but also graduating with a bachelor's degree in nursing and attaining two additional diplomas from Conestoga College in Canada. So how did this happen?
Miss Vega never broke any laws, she didn’t do anything illegal. She began her permanent residency application by herself last April. She received a provincial nomination and everything seemed to be squared away. Her only mistake, forgetting to submit one form accompanied by a payment of $100 CAD. She applied for and received her work permit to be able to continue working while her application for permanent residency in Canada was being processed, but she forgot to additionally apply for an open work permit, which became a legal requirement for PR status when she started working at a new hospital.
While Miss Vega will be able to appeal the rejection of her application and her subsequent deportation, it is just a terrible fiasco that could have been easily avoided.
3 Reasons To Use A RCIC
If you want peace of mind, the ability to go about your day to day; working, socializing and taking care of your family without the anxiety of hoping your visa or permanent residency application is in order and you have submitted everything you need to, you may consider enlisting the services of an RCIC for the following reasons:
Avoid Unnecessary Costs
Best case scenario, Miss Vega will have to resubmit her application for processing. There are significant costs associated with doing this, as it’s not only the permanent residency application fee. There will also be the work permit fee, the open work permit fee and even possibly a fee to reapply for her provincial nomination. Getting it right the first time is vital, and even though there is an extra cost associated with making use of a professional, it’s nothing compared to not only the cost of having to reapply, but also the cost on your career, mental well being, peace of mind etc.
Why would you not want to get your permanent resident card as soon as possible? No one likes hanging in limbo, one foot in the country and one out, unsure if in six months or a year's time you will have to return to your home country. Get your application in, processing started and make Canada your new home as soon as possible.
Choose the Right Immigration Program
This is one of the most important reasons to make use of an RCIC. This vital step takes place before you even apply. There are over 100 different Canadian visa and immigration programs and there is a cost associated with applying to each one. This step could further save you time, money and just get you right where you need to be from the beginning. A skilled RCIC can advise you not only as to which programs are best suited for your particular needs, skills and experience, but also which provinces are best suited.
