Applying for a visa to live and work in another country is a daunting long-winded process. Many people find themselves bursting with overconfidence and feel that a simple Google search will help them fill out extremely complex or lengthy application forms. For simple visitor visas, this may not be an issue but for those who wish to stay in another country on a permanent or longterm basis, hiring an immigration expert to help oversee the process is highly recommended. Connect Canada Immigration Services is a Canadian Immigration consulting firm helping people to realize their dream of a better life in Canada. The idea of establishing an Immigration firm struck when Santosh Suryawanshi, Founder of Connect Canada Immigration was struggling to get a Spousal Work Permit in Canada. Being a sufferer, Santhosh was aware of the challenges that immigrants face, and thus he decided to bridge this gap. He studied immigration laws and set up an immigration firm of his own with the intention of not just helping his spouse but other similar people who were going through the same quandary.
Incepted in the year 2014, Connect Canada Immigration consulting firm has been incorporated under the business corporation act of Government of Alberta. The organization is a member of Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) and also represents immigration case at Immigration, Refugee and citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Currently, we are using cloud services to provide in services to communicate with their clients. Many of our clients are happy and receive their results without even having to attend an immigration interview because their filed paperwork is prepared with IRCC'S exacting standards,” says Santosh Suryawanshi, Founder, Connect Canada Immigration.
