    Hi, I am from Belize and I currently own and operate a manufacturing plant here in my country. I did my undergrad in Alberta. I am 29 years old and i plan to start a family soon. I would like to raise my family in Canada because I think my future kids will have a safer and brighter future there. I was thinking about investing in some properties to start off with. The thing is, I really enjoyed my time there as well and I absolutely fell in love with the country and the people. What do you guys suggest I do to make my dream a reality?

    My 30-yr old nephew sponsored by his mother for permanent resident visa was declined/disapproved by the Embassy of Canada for a number of reasons. What is the possibility of appealing his case to CIC under your direction? I would much appreciate if you can give any guidance to this effect. Thank you.
