Happy 2011 Thanksgiving to our American Friends and Immigration Clients

Its turkey time again south of the border and while it hasn’t been the best year for the US in terms of the economy and geo-political developments, there is always a lot to be thankful for as Americans.

America is a free country founded on the principle of individual rights where its citizens can pursue their lives without fear of government censorship, unlawful search and  seizure and persecution. Sadly, this cannot be said for many other countries. The US has gotten a lot of bad press over the last few years and I think people lose perspective about how great a nation it really is. America remains the major immigration destination worldwide and for good reason.

Annually, thousands apply to come to the US on permanent and temporary visas in search of better opportunities, freedoms and peace. Looking at the forest though the trees will tell you that here in Canada, we should be thankful for America not only as our largest trading partner but also as our de facto protectorate as well. Our safety here is Canada is taken for granted and the fact remains that we can walk the streets because our closest neigbour is a friendly Super Power.

So while the Canadian Thanksgiving has passed, I want to wish all our American friends a Happy Thanksgiving and a Thank you from us.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
