COURTNEY'S JOURNEY TO PERMANENT RESIDENCY (USA TO CANADA)
Updated: Oct 8, 2019
COURTNEY’S EXPERIENCE - PERMANENT RESIDENCY
My boyfriend lives in Canada and after almost 3 years of long distance, I was able to achieve my immigration goals by moving to Canada as a Permanent Resident. I moved here from the USA. Jade helped me navigate the immigration system seamlessly. She was extremely knowledgeable about the programs I would qualify for, what documents I would need, and how to best present my experience. I applied for Express Entry under the Federal Skilled Worker program. The entire process took about 10 months, which was way faster than what I anticipated.
Now, I am living in Ottawa and working as a Social Worker with clients who have traumatic brain injuries. I have been in Canada for 3 months so far and one of my favourite things is the natural beauty of the province of Ontario. I have enjoyed hiking, canoeing, fishing, and experiencing the “mosaiculture” topiary exhibit in Gatineau. I am looking forward to doing different outdoor activities in the winter, like skiing, snow shoeing, and skating on the Rideau canal.
