I’ve been in Canada for the last 12 years, my file was quite complicated throughout the years. I met my wife in 2017 and we did get married in 2019. We tried a lot of consultants and lawyers to file for my sponsorship application for PR but most of them either tried to scare us or misguided us We then decided to take matter in our own hands and tried doing our own paperwork but given my immigration history and our racial differences with our families(I am Indian and my wife is Filipina) it was quite difficult for us to do so and no lawyer or consultant was showing us the right path for filing the application. Then in 2021 we met Canoz Visa services in Brampton, we spoke to Harsimrat regarding our situation and she explained everything to us very well, we gave her our paperwork what we did, she took that and made changes to her knowledge while every other consultant or lawyer was not even willing to see what we did and within 10 months, I received my PR status. These guys are the best of the best and above all very accommodating and understanding. She has gained my and my family’s business for a very long time. Thank you for all your help. Ashish & Kyla

Harsimrat helped my husband to get the travel document for 3 years after his PR expired and wanted to come and meet us . Everyone here in Canada suggested that my husband needs visitor visa and he needs to surrender his PR but when we met Harsimrat she told us to apply for the travel document rather than surrendering PR . She is so good in her job. If anyone asks me who is the right person to connect to regarding the visas I recommend her name. They are the best and very helpful
