Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
Canadian immigration lawyers are best qualified to help you navigate the way through Canada Immigration’s sea of rules and regulations. Lawyers are highly educated and have training in the law, the rules of evidence and the judicial process. Only lawyers can represent you from the initial application process to, if need be, the appeal process before the Federal Court. Canadian lawyers are obligated to observe a high professional and ethical standard in their work and are not only answerable to you, the client, but are also governed by the long-standing law society of their province.

We found Chris’s practice from a Google search - our criteria was a lawyer who was skilled, who specialized in immigration, and who produced results.
From our first appointment, Chris offered us invaluable insight about how to proceed with our permanent residency application, and we were fully on board to have him take us through the whole process. He responded to any question or concern we had in an incredibly timely manner. He made sure that our application met the standards it needed to be a successful application, and sure enough, we got permanent residency in Canada. Chris was integral to that happening and we’ve already recommended him to many friends who are applying for PR, and they’ve all had great experiences with him too.
Cannot recommend Chris and his team enough. Applying for Permanent Residency requires a guided strategy in order to minimize your processing time- Chris helped me through each stage of the process and would regularly check in to ensure I was compiling my documents. I successfully became a PR in far less than the average wait time, and I owe it to the great group of people at Elgin & Cannon.
Chris himself is always available to chat about any immigration-related queries and is a legal counsel you can depend on during stressful periods. Many other immigration firms in Vancouver had provided me with so much complex information, before I was referred to Chris and knew it was the right decision. He kept it simple and knew exactly how to execute.
Definitely reach out to Chris if for immigration assistance in the Vancouver area. Thank you again for everything.

I initially contacted Fritz on the recommendation of a friend who had worked with Elgin, Cannon & Associates on a PR application. My colleague was having trouble with multiple study visa application rejections, and I was not sure how to proceed. From the very first meeting, Fritz was extremely professional, kind, and patient. Over the course of the next 7 months, Fritz took the refused study permit all the way to Judicial Review, and was successful in getting the study permit. Throughout, Fritz communicated patiently and openly, and provided invaluable advice. His service was so exceptional that my colleague returned for a study permit renewal, and plans to engage Elgin, Cannon, & Associates for any future immigration matters. I highly recommend Fritz and his colleagues.
