CAN+ Program for Mexicans Coming to Canada

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Hi, this is Michael Niren, immigration lawyer and founder of

The CAN+  Program for Mexican Nationals

The Canadian government has made it easier for Mexican nationals to come to Canada as temporary residents or as visitors under the new CAN+ program. The CAN+ program is for eligible Mexicans who have traveled to Canada or United States within the last 10 years. These individuals will be allowed to apply for visitor visas, temporary resident visas on an expedited basis, and we’re hoping that the process will be about 50% faster, which is really good news. So far, 95% of applicants under the CAN+ program have been approved. It’s a great program. It’s an initiative to allow Mexican nationals an easier path… to have an easier path to come to Canada.

Benefits Associated with the CAN+  Program for Mexican Nationals

In the past, under NAFTA, Mexicans didn’t even need temporary resident visas. They didn’t need visas to come to Canada. However, over the last few years, the government imposed visas for Mexican nationals because some of them came and overstayed their status or applied for refugee status. So the government took a hard line and made Mexicans apply for T.R.V.s. So now, they’re going in the opposite direction, which is good news, under the CAN+ program. So for our Mexican clients or those individuals from Mexico who wish to come to Canada, this is a welcome news. Thank you and have a great day.

Customer Reviews

After initially having a very bad experience with one of their immigration consultants and after posting a negative review on Google I was immediately contacted by the Managing Director to reschedule another consultation to try and provide me with a more positive experience. I have been impressed by their attention to customer service as a result of this and I appreciate the initiative that they have taken to turn my negative experience into a positive one. My second consultation was a great experience, I spoke with Brian about my Canadian PR application and he was able to give me great advice and was extremely helpful. He answered all my questions and explained the process of how to apply and was very patient with me which I really appreciate.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
