Global executive search firms help organizations source and relocate talented and highly-educated executives, workers and leadership from around the world. Once the right person is found for the job, the real employee journey begins: relocating an employee and their family from their current country to a new country without delays, confusion or mixups.
You Source the Candidate
Ackah Law Smooths Their Way Into Canada
Immigration Services for Global Executive Search Firms
In business, time and money make the difference between profitability and loss. Ackah Business Immigration Law understands your need to move people seamlessly across borders.
At Ackah Law, our team of immigration lawyers has been helping companies and people relocate to
Canada for over 10 years. We exclusively practice immigration law so that we can provide the most efficient, strategic and cost-effective results for our clients.
Talent Acquisition Is Serious Business
Immigration law is continuously changing, now more than ever. Due to the pandemic and closed borders, travel into Canada is challenging and often subject to last-minute changes and border agent discretion. Ackah Business Immigration Law Founder and Managing Lawyer Evelyn Ackah has exclusively practiced immigration law for over 20 years - and is well-respected by Canadian embassies, immigration officials and border agents. Our legal team is committed to quickly finding solutions so that employees can cross borders and businesses have the valued global talent they need to be successful.
What's At Risk If You Don't Hire Ackah Law?
Ackah Law works closely with international executive search firms to smooth the way for employees to move to Canada. We are innovators in delivering immigration services, and when the pandemic closed borders and offices our technology allowed us to continue working seamlessly with businesses and individuals.
Our Success Stories Speak For Themselves
When the borders closed, Ackah Law worked tirelessly with our clients so they could successfully get needed documentation and enter Canada, providing reassurance, breaking information and personal guidance on how to prepare for their travel. The reality of the past year is that immigration and travel change rapidly, and employees must be prepared for the unexpected.
Work Permits are required for almost any traveler coming to Canada to work. Work Permits often require an LMIA application to demonstrate the employer's need to hire a qualified foreign worker. Some employees can qualify for a Work Permit through International Mobility Programs (IMP) under NAFTA, GATS or other treaty categories of Temporary Foreign Workers, and are exempt from LMIA requirements. Our legal team works closely with you to make sure your employee is prepared:
- applications for Work Permits and LMIA documentation or LMIA exempt status
- coordinated documentation verifying essential worker or exception status
- 1:1 prep for talking to border agents
- detailed explanations of what airlines can and cannot do
- 24/7/365 support if an airline agent or border agent denies entry
- updated travel, quarantine and immigration processing information
Global employers invest in international assignee acquisition, but their expatriate workforce requires post-arrival services. Once an expat employee is onboarded the journey does not end. Expat employees typically require ongoing immigration services including:
- family relocation
- visa and permit renewals
- inadmissibility issues and waivers
- referrals for tax, banking, education, health care and other community resources
- repatriation assistance
Crossing Borders Seamlessly isn't just our tagline - it's our promise. Ackah Law is an award-winning law firm for a reason: we work tirelessly to earn our client's trust and to get the results they need. We're successful when our clients are successful.
