Immigration

Overview

Miller Thomson’s Immigration Group provides advice and assistance to individual and business clients on all forms of temporary entry into, permanent residence and citizenship for Canada and the United States. We assist clients ranging from corporations seeking to do business in international markets or transferring personnel, to individuals seeking to invest in Canada or to reunite with family members.  As members of legal bars in both Canada and the United States, we possess in-depth and comprehensive expertise in nearly every aspect of Canadian and US Immigration law.  In particular, we are able to provide a single immigration law resource for corporate clients who do business in both Canada and the United States.
