What are the first steps to immigrating to Canada with Abibask?
There are more than 70 immigration programs to Canada, so the first step is to fill out our FREE ASSESSMENT form.
After this, our Immigration Representative will analyze your profile to see if there is a possibility that you match with one of the currently available immigration programs.
If there is a possibility of you matching a program, we will request an initial consultation so we can analyze your profile more concisely. There is a charge for this initial consultation of $150.
If, after the initial consultation, our analysis is that you qualify for a program and you wish for us to represent you, we will organize our contract and begin work on your immigration journey immediately.
Is it important to use a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant?
