Testimonials

  • I really appreciate all of your efforts and good advice on my recent work permit application. I was surprised that my application was concluded so fast. This wouldn’t have happened without your advice. I would definitely choose you for my future legal needs and it is such an honor for me to have my comment on your website. I should also thank Daniel for his emails and regular follow-ups.

  • Actually, I should say that I was really lucky to have Ms. Jafari as my lawyer. She was the only one who always gave me information and positive vibes during the immigration process. I am truly sure the only reason I got my visa was her efforts. She is the only honest person I’ve seen because I was disappointed with my previous representatives. Words can’t explain my happiness. Today, I’m delighted because of her. I hope to have chance to see her when I arrive in Canada. It would be my honor to work with her in the future.

Canada opens door to Palestinians displaced in Gaza war Immigration minister announces pathways for displaced Palestinians with connections to Canadians to seek refuge. But safe passage is not guaranteed.Nicholas-KeungByNicholas KeungImmigration ReporterThursday, December 21, 20232 min to readFacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrintCopy article linkSaveGaza food aid.JPGHatem Ali/The Associated PressPalestinians line up for food aid in Rafah, Gaza Strip on Wednesday.FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrintCopy article linkSaveMore than two months after the Israel-Hamas war started, the federal government has finally announced pathways for displaced Palestinians with connections to Canadians to seek refuge in this country.The special measures will cover spouses, children, grandchildren, siblings, parents and grandparents of Canadian citizens and permanent residents. Those who are already in Canada will be allowed to extend their stay in the country without having to pay for any application fees for study and work permits. Israelis currently in the country are also eligible to the fee-exempts permits if they, too, left Israel or the Palestinian territories on or after Oct. 7, 2023, when the conflicts began. All existing and new permanent residency applications for Palestinians within family reunification streams will also be prioritized.ARTICLE CONTINUES BELOWFor those who are still stuck in an "unlivable" Gaza, Immigration Minister Marc Miller said Canada will offer temporary resident permits, but he said it is still uncertain whether they can get through the border guarded by Israeli authorities. "I would like to stress that it's extremely difficult to leave Gaza and (it) may not be possible for everyone as countries set their own entry and exit requirements," Miller told reporters at a news conference Thursday."We will do our utmost to assist but cannot guarantee safe passage. Canada does not determine when or how many persons can cross Rafah on any particular day."All the new measures will be operational as of Jan. 7 and the temporary resident permits will be good for up to three years, said Miller, adding that all applicants must still meet the necessary eligibility and admissibility requirements.The 46,000-strong Palestinian-Canadian community has been pleading with the federal government to create a specific pathway that would offer temporary refuge for their loved ones displaced from Gaza.You might be interested inInventory of newly built homes at best level since 2015, building industry saysNEWSInventory of newly built homes at best level since 2015, building industry says10 hrs agoThere's a missing link in the Colorado court ruling blocking Donald Trump's path back to the White HouseNEWSThere's a missing link in the Colorado court ruling blocking Donald Trump's path back to the White House2 days agoWhile the federal government said it’s been helping Canadian citizens, permanent residents and their "eligible family members" leave the war zone, there had been confusion over who qualifies and questions raised about why Ottawa hasn’t brought in a specific plan to help Palestinians.Miller estimated the number of people affected by the new pathway could be in the hundreds.Gaza became a battlefield after Hamas launched an attack on Israel on Oct. 7, killing 1,200 Israeli civilians and military members. The retaliatory siege, bombardments and ground attacks have left 19,600 civilians and combatants in Gaza dead.Initially Canada and other western countries affirmed Israel's right to defend itself in the wake of the Hamas attack. As the death toll in Gaza has grown, there have been increasing calls for restraint.This month, the Liberal government shifted its position from past practice of voting with the U.S. and Israel by voting in favour of a UN resolution calling for an immediate humanitarian ceasefire.On Thursday, when asked why it has taken the government so long to offer protection to Canadians' extended families, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the situation was "extremely difficult," adding that Canada has worked hard to get more than 600 Canadians, permanent residents, and their spouses and children out of Gaza, but there is much more to do.More to come.With files from The Canadian PressNicholas KeungNicholas Keung is a Toronto-based reporter covering immigration for the Star.
