Thanks to Charlene I recently became a Permanent Resident of Canada. She is incredibly caring and made this long and tiring process seem like something achievable (even through this pandemic). The process of application and all the waiting was much more bearable thanks to her and her open communication and words of support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I would not be here without you!

Charlene and team are professional, communicative and quick to respond to all inquiries. Was a pleasure working with Charlene! We turned to professional help and she made the Perm Residence Process a breeze, assembled everything and sent off a professional package that we felt confident in and in turn, it took a huge load off of our mind. She is competent, thorough, and answers all questions. Would highly recommend!!
