HUMANITARIAN AND COMPASSIONATE
This is a special program that allows persons, who do not qualify under the Skilled worker Selection system achieve permanent residence in Canada. The Application can be processed either within or outside of Canada. They have to convince the visa officer that they are facing ‘extraordinary” circumstances, and they face ‘undue hardship’, if they stay in their country of residence, etc.
This is a discretionary visa and thus, rarely successful. To be considered under this program, the Officer must be convinced that the applicant will face extreme or undue hardship, if not allowed to enter/ remain in Canada. Generally, spouses, dependent children of Canadian citizens/ PRs, De facto family members, people facing risk, family violence, Long-term illegal residents unable to leave due to circumstances beyond their control, etc. find it easier to make a successful application under this category.
The economic challenges being faced or likely to be faced in home country are not considered under this program.

This leads to a client- specific strategy, guaranteed to give best results at optimum costs.
The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) transformed the face of Canadian immigration, after June 28, 2002. IRPA – a sweeping revision of immigration after 26 years – introduced progressive concepts and criteria to determine the profile of new immigrants to Canada, and drastically changed the ground rules for immigration practice. This had immense effect on the skill sets required for an immigration practitioner or Consultant to act as a ‘Representative’. With the introduction of IRPA, the movement towards regulation of immigration consultants also gained momentum. In conjunction, the above developments would go on to alter the topography of the Canadian immigration industry forever.
Deepak foresaw this change and promptly upgraded his education to cover the new concepts, by taking the Immigration Practitioner Post-Diploma programme at Seneca College, Toronto and clearing it with High Honors in 2003. This education coupled with his experience as an immigration practitioner, places him in a unique position to provide balanced advice on immigration matters under the present law. Deepak has an empathetic approach and approaches each case with a deep and solid understanding of the issues faced by the clients, based on individual personal, family and social circumstances.
