  • Sara A.
    Mrs. Dogen helped me with responding to a letter from CIC. I was very scared when I received the letter and I didn’t know how to respond. She discussed my options with me, helped me write the response and told me what documents to provide. She prepared everything and mailed it for me. Great service!

  • Monica K.
    Ms. Dogen is very professional and helpful. I wanted to sponsor my husband for Canadian permanent residence but I was scared because our situation was a little complicated. From the start, Ms. Dogen took the time to discuss our case, informed us of the different issues that could come up and she gave us personal attention. She made us feel very comfortable throughout the application process.
