Background Information

Our client is a successful professional from Pakistan. Before coming to Canada, she resided in the UAE and was employed as a senior medical manager at a prominent pharmaceutical company. She approached us in 2022 to assist her with her business immigration application to come to Canada as an entrepreneur. She envisioned establishing her own food manufacturing & trading company in Canada. Our law firm successfully represented the client in her work permit application under the C11-Entrepreneur category, which was approved in May 2022. In July of 2022, the client and her family arrived in Canada, and she immediately started working on her business.

In 2023, our client retained us again to assist her in her application for permanent residence in Canada under the Express Entry Program. 

Case Study: Approved Permanent Residence for C11-Entrepreneur from Pakistan

Application Strategy: Our client was a highly educated, experienced professional with strong language skills. However, she lost 100 CRS points due to her age and was disadvantaged in the Express Entry pool. However, since she has worked in Canada for 12 months on a closed work permit for her own company, she could claim additional points for arranged employment in Canada. To successfully apply for permanent residence in Canada, our client had to demonstrate that she had received a valid job offer in the NOC category 00 (Senior Managers). For a job offer to be valid, our client had to provide evidence to the IRCC regarding the establishment of her business operations in Canada and demonstrate that she would be operating her business through middle managers. 

Problem: Unfortunately, in this case, our client’s business did not generate any revenue in the past 1 year due to the investment in research and development activities for the business in the past 12 months. In addition, given the stage of her company’s growth, there were no other employees on the company’s payroll except our client. Our client predominantly relied on third-party independent companies to run her business and invested heavily in the research & development activities in Canada.

Solution: Our team focused on the most critical aspects of our client’s application, highlighting positive aspects of the business growth and explaining all potential issues in her application. Specifically, we argued that the business establishment in Canada should not be merely judged by the revenue generated, as many companies spend considerable resources for years before seeing any revenues. Given the specific nature of this business, the company’s revenue was not a good indicator of the validity of the job offer. In addition, our client relied on many professional companies and their teams when building and managing her company in Canada; thus, the absence of employees on payroll should not be a prerequisite for her ability to claim points for arranged employment in Canada.

Outcome: IRCC accepted our position and approved our client’s application for Permanent Residence in Canada. We thank IRCC for being reasonable and flexible in this case. 

Congratulations to our client! We wish them tremendous success in Canada!

I cannot say enough good things about Sobirovs Law Firm’s exceptional team. My work permit application was quite complex and underwent numerous tests, including a rejection from the first attempt. Feruza developed a tailored strategy that contributed to the best chance of success in the resubmission, and her entire team presented my case with unparalleled expertise and genuine care. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to Maggie, a phenomenal consultant who supported me in every step of the application, took the time to understand my unique situation and answered all my questions patiently. Her in-depth knowledge of the work permit program, proficiency in preparing my application and professional communication were reassuring and truly remarkable. Thanks to your team’s extraordinary work, I can now pursue my business goals in Canada with peace of mind.

I had a great experience working with the Sobirov Law Firm. The entire team was professional, prompt, and meticulous in their approach. We started working with them on LMIA under GTS of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. The time it took from creation of an Incorporation to submission and approval of our application was around 8 weeks. Work Permit approval took another 2 weeks. They also helped us get shared office space since it was a new experience for us. They guided us in finding a payroll service provider and a realtor to help with the relocation of the foreign employee. My sincere thanks to Feruza Djamalova and Rakhmad Sobirov (Attorneys), and Yulia Kan (Team Lead).
