Immigration

Boughton Law helps you navigate the complexity of immigration law for both corporate entities and individuals. As the only Meritas® member in British Columbia, we have unique access to international expertise and immigration experts around the world.

Cross border travel and the associated paperwork, from temporary work permits to permanent residency, can be critical to the smooth operation of your business. With extensive knowledge and experience in cross border transactions, Boughton Law’s team has the expert advice you need for your corporate immigration strategies.

We help companies in industries such as construction, engineering, film and television, information technology, mining, and transportation. If you’re an investor wishing to permanently relocate to Canada through provincial or federal business programs, we can assist you with the process and provide support, even after you’ve established your business here. This includes helping you renew your permanent resident card, maintaining residency obligations, and if desired, obtaining citizenship.

We also offer specific expertise for a full spectrum of Canadian and American immigration issues. We counsel clients on visa requirements, the issuance of temporary resident permits for Canadian entry, and waivers of inadmissibility to the United States.

Boughton Law is a part of Meritas®, a global alliance of independent, full service law firms. With access to firms operating in over 230 markets worldwide, we can draw upon the expertise of trusted foreign legal advisors and even provide referrals if needed.

In house, we also have expert legal talent including a former Department of Citizenship and Immigration Officer and a lawyer who is licensed in both California and British Columbia. Throughout the process, we connect with our Business, Employment, and Tax Practice Groups to provide comprehensive legal advice that can pre-empt any future issues you may have.
