Saskatchewan!

As a single mother of two daughters, an investigative journalist, I relocated to Canada in the year 2000.

 

Having gone through the immigration process and having faced countless obstacles, including going in front of the IRB and federal court, I learnt first hand that immigration is not for woosies.

The hurry up and wait game is real. The stress, anxiety and uncertainty can kill your joy of life.

 

It took me several years to find my feet, financially as well as psychologically. 

 

I watched with horror from afar, the  inability of the South African government and their authorities to protect the vulnerable communities. The decision to go back to school and study immigration, to be in a position to help others relocate for the purpose of creating a safe, secure future for themselves and their families was made.  My own family was not too certain that this was a good decision, but I have found my passion and they all got to eat that hat!

 

There are those that do not have the ease of the high scores enjoyed by others - good education, experience, financial resources and youth. These are my people. My kin.  There are many ways to skin a cat. If Express Entry does not allow a viable option for you.. then there may be a route that is better suited. Provinces often offer streams that are not reliant on Express Entry. 

 

Immigration is not for the meek of character. It requires determination and grit - qualities that Southern Africans are raised with!  If you are determined and willing to put in the work, then I will walk the road with you. 

 

If there is absolutely no way that you will be able to relocate to Canada, I will not lead you on. I will tell you upfront, before a retainer service agreement is signed and paid for. 

 

That being said, there is never a guarantee of success, the decision lies firmly in the hands of the Canadian Government - IRCC and or ESDC, but my promise to you that I will cross every t and dot every i fighting dragons on your behalf.  Book a consult, do the assessment. The only way to follow a dream is to get moving. Watching from the sidelines does not teach you to swim. 

 

We are in your corner.

Hope to meet you soon.  

 

With love always

 

 

Diane

My appreciation to Clinton Emslie from ICL Immigration for the mentoring and training received over the past few years.  From unpaid internship to Manager of the Team Africa.  Many success stories, a few fall on my face moments, but September 2023, it was Jess and I,  ready to face the world on our own.

Dianes Ode to Jessica

 

Jessica is the wind behind behind my back.

The shade on a sunny day.

The umbrella in the rain. 

The calm voice of reason amidst the chaos.

(Oh.. this sounds a lot like Godfrey too!) 

Our Services start with a Consultation

Half the problems that applicants face is by listening to others stories. Details matter!  Filling out the Free Assessment helps give us a snapshot of your situation, AND it gives you a half price discount. Win-Win! 

1

Initial Consultation

We use this time to meet you, gather information that is unique to your situation, discuss what options you may be eligible for.

 

What is a NOC code

What is a valid job offer

What is a LMIA

What is an endorsement

 

We also de-mystify the Express Entry, the PNP and the Canadian Experience Class. 

 

If you are not eligible for one program NOW, then we can talk about other options, or even how to go about becoming eligible.

 

Please do the free assessment before you meet with our licenced RCIC. 

Coming soon:

We have applied for licensing under the Skatchewan Province - UPDATE:

licenced as of May 23, 2024!

also

By the end of the year, hope to be licenced to represent clients in front of the IRB including Refugee hearings.  Currently we do prepare clients for hearings although we do not physically represent them. 

2

Specific Route Requirements

This would apply if you are wanting information on a specific route.

Temporary Residence

Visitor

Work Permit

LMIA

Study Permit

Accompanying family

PGWP

Before accepting a job offer, we will check that you fulfil each requirements before accepting. We will also meet with the employer and guide them through the LMIA parocess. 

PR Streams

Express Entry

Provinical Nomination

Humanitarian and Compassion

Spousal Sponsorship

If your goal is eventual Permanent Residence, then ensure that you are eligible to either apply through a PNP or that you will have enough points to hope for a selection through Express Entry or if that Province relies on their own scoring terms.

Refusal Review

Before signing a retainer with us, your refusal history must be discussed. We can do so within this consultation period. If you already have the Officer Notes, we will analyse them with you. If not, we will apply for these on your behalf. 

Previous refusals cannot simply be swept under the blanket. Each one must be fully addressed when applying for any further application. 

Document Review Pre Submission

We offer a service to Do-It-Yourself applicants whereby we will go through your application and look for weaknesses. However, we only work with the merterial that you have supplied. 

After the Consultation

Once we know where you stand, which route you are eligibile for, we can start planning your journey. 

With our usual "recap" of the consultation, is an attachment for a Retainer Requisition Form.

Once you have filled this out (if you have a spouse, they need to include their unique email address for electronic signature.

An agreement will be sent to you for review and signature.

Once you become eligible for a specific process, a payment request will be sent to you.

 

 Understand that nothing is set in stone. Immigration streams, programs, requirements, fees can change at any time.

Only once your application is submitted does it hold the IRCC to those requirements. 

Also, there is NO GUARANTEE for a positive outcome.  The decision lies firmly in the hands of the IRCC officer. We will put 110% into your application and we will navigate the known potholes. But it is important that you manage

your expectations,

your mental health,

your relationships

through out this life changing journey. 

IRCC have the  authority and the power of discretion to refuse or approve any application.

There are times that a refusal will be made and we are able to request a reconsideration, and in some cases, have the decision overturned. But usually the way forward, is to fix the officer concerns and resubmit the application. 

Having a refusal on your file, especially now that AI is used to help with the workload, is challending all on its own. 

It is simply better to get it right the first time. 

Please note that our fees to walk with you are fully discussed and disclosed during our consultation.

 

We are always in your Corner

Gathering your information..

All the links you need in one place! 

Our Trusted Go-To Partners

Please be sure to tell them that you were referred to them by us. There is no financial benefit but sometimes priority is given. 

If you are referred to us by one of our preferred vendors, please ask them for their 10% off code.

This is valid for any of the consultation fees as well as the retainer fee.
