FAMILY CLASS IMMIGRATION
Family re-unification is so fundamental to Canadian Immigration law that it is stated as an objective in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act of Canada. The concept "family member" is limited by its definition in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations. Some of the family members that you may be able to sponsor for permanent residence include:
 
     
 

ECONOMIC IMMIGRATION

Many immigrants to Canada are accepted based on their ability to become economically established in Canada. Generally speaking, business applicants have to prove business experience and must have a certain legally acquired net worth, and workers have to prove work experience.

INVESTOR CATEGORY

Applicants in the investor category require the management experience of a qualified business or the management of five full time employees and a net worth of $800,000.00. The applicant will deposit the sum of $400,000.00 with the Government of Canada for the period of five years. The full deposit will be refunded  without interest after five years.

If the applicant is unable to come up with the required deposit of $400,000.00,  another option is to obtain a loan from a bank or financial institution. Currently the loan fees are between $120,000.00 to $130,000.00. Farmers can also qualify under this program, This program is very expedient. An applicant can acquire permanent residence for his/herself and their immediate family within a year.

  MORTGAGE & REFINANCING  
 

If you are interested in the procedures that are involved in refinancing mortgages, you'll probably be pleasantly surprised to find out that the process is simpler than many people assume. Once you've begun the process of refinancing, mortgages can be adjusted to a lower interest rate, a longer or shorter loan term, or a different loan package. If the prevailing interest rates have fallen significantly since you first received your mortgage, or if your credit has improved significantly in that time, it may be beneficial to explore the option of refinancing your mortgage. In addition, if you would like to extend or reduce the overall length of your loan, refinancing your mortgage is a viable option. Finally, the refinancing process can be helpful if you would like to switch from an adjustable-rate to a fixed-rate loan or vice versa.

 
     
  WILLS & ESTATE PLANNING LAW  
 

When people think of estate planning the first thing that comes to mind is writing a Will. Although your Will is a large element of your estate plan, there is much more to consider. Your estate plan will be greatly influenced by your marital status, family, health, financial position and business dealings.

Each of these items will play a role in how comprehensive your estate plan should be. Because your life is constantly changing, your estate plan should be reviewed and revised regularly to make sure important issues are taken care of in the case that you become ill or pass away.
