Virtue Education’s (Virtue) path to offering full immigration services arose from our initial focus on bringing suitably qualified candidates into Canada over the years into various educational levels as agents to several designated learning institutions, colleges and high schools. As a natural corollary to our educational recruiting, we were also approached to handle study permits, and temporary resident visas for students and their family members. As the students graduated and were offered jobs, they also approached Virtue to help process their post-graduation work permit (PGWP) entrusting the task to us as trusted partners. Those who desired to apply for permanent residency (PR) through the express entry system post-PGWP, at their instance from favorable experiences with Virtue, came to Virtue to handle the process as their paid representatives. We are delighted to be chosen as a preferred partner along the value-chain of the immigration process over the years by students, Canadian educated applicants, and their family members.

From such passive but firm entry into immigration as a focus area, we are now active in the primary immigration space to complement Canada’s pro-immigration policy which recently has accounted for over 80 per cent of annual population growth in Canada. There are more admissions annually and the program routes to legal migration to Canada keep expanding through the Federal and Provincial programs designed to attract the best qualified candidates to emigrate to Canada as a destination of first choice.

The paths to becoming a PR in Canada are multivariate and a lot depends on the respective qualification criteria fully explained on the official website of Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). There is no requirement to use a paid representative as applicants can handle their applications directly with IRCC. Nonetheless, many applicants would rather deal with immigration consultants because of their familiarity with the process through the experience-curve gained from handling several similar and repetitive applications under the over 80 programs available for intending immigration candidates.

Virtue is managed by experienced professionals among who are an in-house registered member of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) and an extensive network of similar professional consultants. We are therefore regulated by ICCRC and are members in good standing meeting regulatory standards, including on-going professional development, audit, and insurance requirements among others.

We are pleased to put our professionalism at your disposal as you plan your next steps towards becoming a permanent resident of Canada and progressing to becoming a full citizen in due course, as the case may be.

To commence the application process with Virtue, it is essential to execute an initial consultation agreement. We then proceed to the assessment stage to determine which of the over 80 federal and provincial programs you are best suited for. Once we jointly make the determination at the assessment stage, we can then progress to the retainer agreement which spells out the full contractual obligations between the applicant and Virtue. Contact us today to commence the journey and we promise that it will be a worthwhile service experience.
