Canadian Immigration Lawyer, Holthe Immigration Law

As a Canadian immigration lawyer, I have particular expertise in assisting clients with all aspects of Canadian immigration law. I assist large national and multinational companies in navigating the complex world of Canadian immigration and provide strategic immigration advice to international and domestic companies seeking to recruit and retain foreign skilled and semi- skilled personnel. I assist temporary foreign workers with their transition to permanent resident status in Canada and over the past few years, I have taken great satisfaction in helping individuals and families with their various immigration related needs. There is no greater satisfaction than helping to facilitate the reunification of families.

While attending law school I worked as an Immigration officer for Citizenship and Immigration Canada on the Alberta/Montana border. While completing my final year of law school I worked as a pro bono student to the Canada Border Services Agency Hearings Officers representing the minister before the Immigration Appeal Division in Calgary, Alberta. As a result of my prior experience as an immigration officer, I have been able to enhance the services I offer to my cross-border and overseas clients. Since that time, I have continued to work hard fostering positive relationships with the various immigration related government departments and have focused a significant portion of my practice on cross-border matters.

I started my legal career with a large national law firm in Calgary where I initiated the business immigration practice at the firm. Since then I have spent time working in a variety of different settings and have recently re-established my immigration law firm after a brief sojourn with a full-service firm in Alberta. I love producing live video on Canadian immigration and spinning it out to various social media platforms branded as the Canadian Immigration Institute. I am the host of the Canadian Immigration Podcast on iTunes which offers the latest information on Canadian immigration law, policy, and practice. I invite guests from across the country to share insight on a wide variety of immigration topics. Please feel free to reach out to me if you would like to join me as a guest on a future episode.

I am also currently serving as the National Chair of the Canadian Bar Association’s Immigration section.
