I left my home in Mexico to work in Canada. My employer was very happy with my services and so they prepared my paperwork for becoming a permanent resident of Canada in 2008. I came to realize that having my girlfriend and baby daughter with me was more important than my work here in Canada. I wanted to bring them to be here with me but I faced some challenges with Immigration Canada because of how my application for permanent residency was made.

My girlfriend and daughter came as visitors to Canada when my daughter was a baby and she knew no other life but here with us in Canada. Evelyn and I got married in 2010 and a couple of months later we saw Jennifer and her staff for the first time. No one wanted to touch my case. I had just about given up and decided to return to Mexico. I felt very comfortable as they could speak to me in my own language. They were the first place to treat me and my family like human beings. They didn’t just take money from me and wait and see what happened with my case. They really cared and worked very hard to rescue my mistakes and allow my daughter to stay and go to school and learn how to be a big sister to our second daughter who came along in 2012. In 2013 both Evelyn and my eldest daughter became permanent residents here in Canada and are looking forward to learning more about this great country to become citizens one day.

I’m so thankful to Jennifer and her staff for taking my case when no one else would and fighting for me and my family. We knew that our case would not be easy and they were honest about our chances right from the start. They laid out a plan right from the beginning and there were no surprises along the way.

I would recommend them to others because they see us as people not dollar signs.
