Case Study: Americans Move to Canada

Case Study: Americans Move to Canada | Evelyn Ackah | Calgary Immigration Lawyer

Evelyn Ackah, founder and managing lawyer at Ackah Business Immigration Law want to help Americans move to Canada and to make Crossing Borders Seamlessly a reality – not just a tagline.

American Brian Owens was contacted about a career move to Calgary. Brian and his husband Michael Dettner were open to an international move – but hadn’t considered moving North to Canada. The opportunity as Artistic Director for the Calgary Film Festival was a dream job, and Brian accepted his new role in August and was able to start work in Calgary a few weeks later in September. As an international organization, the Calgary International Film Festival retains Ackah Business Immigration Law for guidance on immigration matters.

Brian qualified to move to Canada under the Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) category for highly skilled senior workers and he obtained his two-year work permit at the airport upon landing, just 3-4 weeks after Ackah Law filed his immigration application.

Michael worked with the Ackah Law team for his open spousal work permit and also received a 2-year Temporary Resident work permit. 

Brian and Michael plan to work with Ackah Law in the future to apply for the Permanent Residence. Evelyn Ackah and the Ackah Law team loved helping Brian and Michael move to Canada and cross borders seamlessly. Evelyn explains, 

Whether you are moving to Canada to be with family, an individual seeking new career opportunities, or a business that needs to move employees easily across international borders, we work hard to make a very stressful time for our clients as easy as possible.
