Edge Immigration commenced in the summer of 2008. The office is located in the heart of downtown Saskatoon.
For the past 20 years 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.
I am now providing immigration consulting services from my office in downtown Saskatoon. I welcome inquiries from anywhere in the province as well as places beyond.
