M. Shahid & Associates recognizes the difficulties involved in the immigration process. Immigrating to Canada can be very complex and time consuming. It also involves understanding the legal requirements of a country that may be very different from the one that you are living in. Making the decision to immigrate to Canada is a significant step for those who may not be very well informed of the immigration process but as well for those that may have done their research. Many people understand the immigration process but lack the time and expertise to be able to complete the complex procedures. Our efforts are to provide the best knowledge and expertise to our clients. At M. Shahid & Associates we don’t only understand the law, we also understand people. We recognize that life is different and busy in other places in the world and we make every attempt possible to simplify the process.
