Meet Your Team in Canada

Lijing Cao

Lijing brings in her multicultural experience to our business and immigration practice. She first became passionate about business immigration following her work for a national immigration law firm, where she was a part of the global practice team assisting multinational corporate clients with business visitor applications.

Lijing’s practice encompasses all areas of economic immigration, with in-depth knowledge and experience in different categories of work permit applications under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program and the International Mobility Program. She provides strategic legal advice and assistance to corporate clients to fulfill workforce mobility and labour shortage needs.

Lijing works closely with clients to structure their immigration strategies, as well as actively advocating on behalf of clients in support of their immigration goals. She advises entrepreneurs and investors on the options for permanent residence to Canada, including provincial nominee programs, Federal Skilled Worker and Canadian Experience Class programs.

Before joining Sobirovs Law Firm, Lijing worked at a boutique corporate immigration law firm in Toronto, where she focused on a variety of immigration matters including work permits, labour market impact assessments, temporary resident visas, rehabilitation, temporary resident permits and citizenship.

With full proficiency in Mandarin and Cantonese, Lijing is familiar with Chinese culture and tradition. She is the point of contact for the firm’s China practice. In her spare time, Lijing enjoys reading, hiking, swimming, and doing reformer Pilates.
