About Edge Immigration
Edward Ryan, RCIC
Edge Immigration commenced in the summer of 2008 from an office located in the heart of downtown Saskatoon.
From 1989 to 2009 I provided support services to lawyers and law firms in Edmonton and Saskatoon in the areas of litigation support, drafting wills, administering estates, family law, legal research and immigration law. A big part of working in a law firm is doing problem-solving and these years trained me to find answers to difficult issues.
Starting in 2000, I had the opportunity to volunteer with the sponsorship of refugees and their settlement. This initial experience introduced me to other newcomers and gradually I became a resource person for those who had paperwork issues. As these volunteer hours increased year by year, I explored ways to integrate this time into my employment. When the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants was recognized as the legitimate regulatory body for certified Immigration Consultants, I saw an opportunity to bring together my paralegal work and the experience I had gained over the years assisting newcomers with immigration-related matters. I took the necessary courses and exams and became fully licensed in June, 2008. My licence to practice continued in July, 2011 under the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council.
I am now providing immigration consulting services from my office in downtown Saskatoon with the help of dedicated staff. I welcome inquiries from anywhere in the province as well as places beyond.

I was admitted to the Saskatchewan Bar Association in 2013 and have been practicing in immigration since 2014 when I joined Edge Immigration. While studying for my degree, I had worked and volunteered at a legal clinic where I had the opportunity to meet and assist many newcomers to Canada. Since then, I have been interested in immigration law and hope to continue assisting permanent residents and prospective immigrants in reaching their goals.
I am licensed under and regulated by the Law Society of Saskatchewan, allowing me to submit permanent and temporary resident applications as well as representing clients at the Immigration and Refugee Board and the Federal Court of Canada. Although my focus is primarily on sponsorship application (for spouses, common-law partners, parents/grandparents, and children), I also handle citizenship, permanent resident card renewals, citizenship certificates, permit extensions, and SINP and economic class permanent resident applications. For appeals and court applications, I have represented clients in medical and criminal inadmissibility, misrepresentation, and family class, economic class, and refugee refusals.
Our team is focused on getting you to your goal. Each application has numerous details that require attention and our experienced staff has great awareness and understanding of how to prepare your materials properly, professionally and ethically. We take satisfaction when you obtain the result you have been seeking.
We are very excited to welcome newcomers to this part of Canada and you will see many of the programs are designed to make it easier to come to Canada through Saskatchewan.
