“But, just one single, tiny, simple question to ask Jennifer, I don’t need to consult for an hour”

We get the above comments all the time.One simple question leads to many others

And we truly wish we could answer such question quickly and efficiently.  But, in order to answer any meaningful question, we need to investigate contexts or circumstances.  For example, can I go to school without a study permit?  Which school do you plan to go?  Are you here in Canada already or outside of Canada?  Are you studying in class or on internet (these days, you never know)?  Is this a professional study (continuing education) or a degree study?  Did you get your letter of admission or pay your tuition as of yet?  Are you a single person or with a spouse or with children?  Are your children minor or over 18 years old? Which country are you from?

Well… just to answer one question, we just listed a retort of 8 questions to begin with.  Each question may lead to another question or two.


If you are doing a long-distance study, you do not need a study permit, for example.  If you do not have a letter of admission or tuition, we do not know which school and which province or city you are headed and cannot tell you whether you may have a better opportunity.  If you are from a country that requires a visa or not, it may lead to investigate if you have sufficient ties to your own country to be allowed to enter into Canada in the first place.

The first question all potential clients is like a tip of iceberg – we need to uncover it to its fullest, in order for clients to avoid hitting into the rest of iceberg.
