Transforming a Dream Into a Reality

Ma. Eugenia's application wasn't successful the first time it was filed. But she and her husband did not give up, they decided to and submit a new application. Her application was eventually approved and they will be moving to Saskatchewan, Canada soon!

It's been over a year now since the pandemic started. How are you holding up?

It was July 2020 when Ms. Rowena Reyes, a Registered Nurse, contacted our office to inquire about opportunities in Canada. By November 2020, she and her family were already in Canada!

The Visa Officer Rejected Her Application. What she did next is clever!

Mrs Egpit was a Temporary Foreign Worker in Canada for almost 8 years.  While in Canada, she tried to apply for permanent residence status but wasn't able to meet the requirement.  She then decided to go back the Philippines when the validity of her Work Permit expired.  Although she wasn't lucky to get a PR Status, she was fortunately able to help some of her children, relatives and friends get a permanent resident status.  She wanted to visit her family and friends in Canada.  But her application was rejected.

Ms. Nina de Guzman made an investment in 2012 and she will be reaping the benefits very soon

Ms. Nina de Guzman, a Registered Nurse, signed up for our services on November 2012 for us to help her with her immigration plan. Her application was not immediately filed due to the limit in the number of applications being accepted that time and the that the cap in the number of applications to be accepted by Centralized Intake Office (CIO) was reached very fast.  It was only in December 2014 that her application was approved by CIO.

From Papua New Guinea to Canada

Mr Jay Portus was in Papua New Guinea when he decided to pursue his application for permanent residence in Canada.  With a brother who is already in Canada as a permanent resident, he sure understands the difference between working abroad as a contract worker away from one's family and as immigrant in Canada enjoying a better quality of life together with family.

Visa is sweeter the second time around

Mrs. Evelyn Espiritu tried to apply for a tourist visa to visit her daughter in Canada without any help. Unfortunately her application was refused.  She then asked the help of Canadian Immigration Consultancy to process her Visit Visa Application.

If I live outside Canada, may I sponsor my spouse?

There are two types of Sponsorship Application for spouse, one is for those whose spouse is living with the sponsor and the other is for those whose spouse is living outside Canada.  There are different application forms for each type and there's a different processing time.  Now, the question is this: Is the sponsor living outside Canada eligible to sponsor from outside Canada?

Sometimes things aren't clear right away. That's where you need to be patient and persevere and see where things lead. - Mary Pierce

It was June 2007 when Ms. Veralynne Alcantara, Medical Laboratory Technologist, first visited Canadian Immigration Consultancy office to inquire about immigrating to Canada.  She immediately started her application and her application was filed right away under the Federal Skilled Workers Program.  But changes were introduced in 2008 and her application was affected.  Her application was returned unprocessed. 

Immigration rules change from time to time.  Just look at the Chronicle of Changes in the Canadian Immigration and Regulations from 1992 to 2008 and you will get an idea.  And from 2008 to present, there were series of changes as well.

From the time her application was returned, it was only in 2013 that she became eligible.  A limited number of applications from selected occupations were accepted in 2013, including Medical Laboratory Technologist.  Because she was ready with the documents, her application was immediately filed and she made it to the quota.

Although her application was approved shortly after filing the application, it took a while before she got her visa due to some issues with some of her documents.  But with Canadian Immigration Consultancy's assistance,  those issues were addressed properly.  She recently received her visa together with her dependents and gamely obliged for a testimonial photo at Canadian Immigration Consultancy Alabang Office.

How to Apply for Canada Fiance Visa?

Until now, I am still receiving inquiries about Canada's Fiance Visa Application.  So again, there is no such thing as Fiance Visa under Canada's Immigration Regulations.  How then can you sponsor your spouse?  The answer is Family Class Sponsorship.

Fiance Visa Canada
Ms. Gina Tamayo, PR Visa Via Family Class Sponsorship

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

Dr. Rosemarie Bravo, a Physician, will be moving to Canada soon.  Her visa was issued yesterday after almost a year of processing.

Physician needed in Canada

There are things that are simply meant to be.  Dr. Bravo learned about Canadian Immigration Consultancy through her friend, who signed up a consultancy agreement with us but later on decided to withdraw her application due to some personal reasons.  Since the consultancy fee is not refundable, we allowed her to transfer her account to her friend or relative.  She then offered her account to Dr. Bravo.

Documentation process wasn't that smooth for Dr. Bravo.  Education Credential Assessment process for physicians is not just a simple process unlike other occupation.  Proof of her work experience as a Physician is also not as simple as getting an employment certificate from her employer.  But because of her dedication and commitment to her goal, plus with Canadian Immigration Consultancy's assistance and guidance, she finally made it!  She will me moving to Canada soon!

Getting help from an immigration consultant is not a guarantee that your application will be approved.  But one thing is certain, we can help you increase your chances of approval.  You can bank on Canadian Immigration Consultancy's almost 30 years of experience in the immigration constancy business.

Family Class Sponsorship - Conjugal Partner (Same-Sex Partner)

When Ms. Elreen Buenconsejo first visited Canadian Immigration Consultancy - Mall of Asia Branch, she was asking for Study Visa Application.  But after a short interview to determine her eligibility, purpose and plans in the future, we discouraged her with her plan.

Family Class Sponsorship - Conjugal Partner

It turned out that she actually wanted to Study in Canada primarily to be together with her partner, Ms. Mennina, a Canadian citizen.  They were in a relationship for quite a period already but due to legal barrier, they can't get married in the Philippines.  We then suggested her to try the Family Class Sponsorship as a Conjugal Partner.  She was surprised to hear about this option and became more interested when we told her about the story of Ms. Carol. Same-Sex marriage or common-law union is legal in Canada. 

But In order for a Conjugal Partner Sponsorship, it needs a serious commitment from both partners. Otherwise, it will not work.  The challenge here is how to convince the Visa Officer that there is an emotional and financial interdependence - that there is a real and continuing relationship as a couple despite the physical separation.

If you are in a similar situation, we could be of help.  We may not be able to guarantee approval, but we can surely help you increase your chances by avoiding mistakes and proper documentation.  You may send your inquiry to

Happily Ever After: Ms. Carol and Ms. Denise's Story

I have a client who recently landed in Quebec as a permanent resident under the Family Class Sponsorship - Conjugal Partner (Same-Sex Partners). We've actually processed several cases of same-sex partners under the Federal Skilled Worker program and Provincial Nominee Program, but this is the first case we've handled under the Family Class Sponsorship.  It's a tough process, I must say.

The Lovely Couple, Ms. Carol and Ms. Denise, at Ottawa River

Ms. Carol Manuel visited our office a couple of years ago to consult about her case. She is into a same-sex relationship with a Canadian citizen based in Quebec.  Her partner, Ms. Denise, wanted to sponsor her under the family class sponsorship program and they have actually consulted several consultants and immigration lawyers prior to our meeting.  They knew that it's not going to be easy. But after explaining the process, the fees and other stuff, they decided to get our services.

After getting the needed information about their relationship - as a matter of procedure and policy before accepting her case - I was convinced right there and then that this couple is so in love and that there is no doubt that their relationship is real - the emotional and financial inter-dependence is so obvious.  They were so in-love and committed to each other, their distance is never a problem.  They literally talk and see each other daily via webcam and they've been doing it for more than a year already!   

Canada respects and recognize the rights of  Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBTs) and its immigration program also provides provision for these cases.  But it isn't that easy to get approval for this kind of cases.  You need to submit the right documents and information.

Deputy Nycole Turmel

Sometimes, you also need to be assertive - get help from the MPs if necessary. Otherwise, your application will simply be refused on the grounds that the visa officer is not convinced that the relationship is genuine.  In their case, Deputy Nycole Turmel made sure that the Visa Office in Manila is properly handling their case, she went out of her way to contact the Visa Office and really talked to Ms. Carol and Ms. Denise.  Or maybe that is the standrad to be expected from a public servant in Canada. But just the same, I can say Deputy Nycole Turmel is one great public servant.

It took more than a year before Ms. Carol received her visa. She was asked to explain details about the relationship during the personal interview. They questioned the limited period they lived together, among other things.  The processing of Japan Police Certificate also added to the delay. Ms. Carol also have to repeat the medical examination becasue the first medical examination result already expired due to the delay in processng.

During the period of waiting, they were understanbly anxious of what the next requirement would be or the decision that the visa officer will make.   

Ms. Carol with Ms. Denise and her Mom
Despite the challenges and delays, Ms. Carol and Ms. Denise never gave up.  Evertime Ms. Carol tells me she's worried, I always assure her that it's going to be ok.  We do not guarantee approval of application but I was so confident with this case because I believe they really love each other and they deserve to be together.  I met Ms. Denise during one of her visits in the Philippines and I saw how she really care for Ms. Carol.

Ms. Carol at home with her new family in Quebec
And just like a fairy tale, Ms. Carol and Ms. Denise now happily live together in Quebec.  So for those asking if it's really possible for same-sex partners to apply under the Family Class Program, you've just got the answer.

Dr. Daran from Tuguegarao City

Dr. Susan Daran is a licensed dentist from Tuguegarao City.  She visited our office last week to claim her visa.

Her case was a special one because when we filed her application at Centralized Intake Office (CIO), her application was returned unprocessed due to incomplete documents. That's waht CIO claimed but the returned application package actually includes the documents they said were missing.

When we received the returned application, the cap for dentists was already filled so it is no longer an option to refile a new application.  Instead, we sent again her application package with a strongly worded letter demanding to have it processed.  Their clerical error should't ruin one's dream to have a better quality of life in Canada!

Fortunately, her application was accepted and processed.  She got a positive assessment and her files were forwarded to Manila Visa Office.  However, before a medical examination instruction was issued, her husband died and that means the 4 points from adaptability (Spouse's Education) will not be  credited and thus, she will not meet the 67 points pass mark.

To address this another hindrance, we wrote the Visa Office asking for consideration, for substituted evaluation.  We guided Dr. Daran to document justification why she should be given visa.  And now, Dr. Daran and her son will be moving to Canada anytime soon!

You don't need a consultant or a representative to process your immigrant visa application.  Bear in mind, however, that immigration is not a simple process. Small mistakes cause big problems.  Why take the risk?
