Canada has always been viewed as the land of freedom, equality and tolerance. As a result, through the decades, individuals of diverse ethnic, religious and economic backgrounds have often dreamed of immigration in search of opportunities for prosperity and success, not only for themselves, but also for their children.This holds true for today, as Canada remains a sought after country to live, work and fulfill dreams. Can-Asia Immigration Consultancy Services Ltd. is an organization that enables immigration dreams to become a reality for thousands of immigrants over the last 15 years. Specializing in immigration, education and settlement, Can-Asia has 155 employees in 17 offices around the world, including Canada, India, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
“We want to provide in-depth, professional service for our clients, from their initial application to helping them settle once they arrive in their nation of choice,” says Can-Asia President Ron Batth. “We are recognized as leaders in our industry for our quality, professionalism and utmost commitment to serve our clients.”
Can-Asia Immigration has assisted more than 18,000 families migrate to Canada and an additional 5,000 students, many of whom remained in the country, as Can-Asia helped them achieve permanent residency under CEC program.
This organization has launched a subsidiary company, Planet Placement Ltd. that assists Canadian employers to locate and hire suitable overseas employees in the energy, oil and gas, construction and hospitality sectors, as they can’t find suitable candidates in Canada.
According to Batth, immigration law is constantly changing and evolving, depending on demands from the Canadian job market. He refers to the new federal skilled worker program created by Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Jason Kenney, and says it’s a great, effective program to attract foreign skilled workers to Canada. “I want to address the rumours about Canadian immigration getting stricter and closed, it’s actually becoming more open for qualified people,” says Batth, adding “We would like to advice individuals to not use fraudulent documents in an unethical way, as it’s better to come under legal procedures and reap the benefits of Canadian economy and the wonderful life this nation provides.”
Batth refers to two Canadians immigration amendments that have been implemented by Kenney in the last year or so, the ‘Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act’ and addressing the issue of ‘Marriages of Convenience.’ He says these measures are important and integral to Canada’s immigration system, as Kenney is attempting to clean up the system in order for fraudulent individuals to be held accountable for their illegal actions.
Kenney proposed Bill C-35 titled ‘Cracking Down on Crooked Consultants Act’ in 2010,
which will make it a criminal offense for unlicensed and unregistered immigration consultants to charge money to provide immigration advice and services. This Bill became a law on March 23, 2011 and will be enforced in the coming months.
Batth strives to clean up the consulting business, and serves as President of the Association of Professional Immigration and Education Consultants of India.
“We are all trying to remove the “dirt” out of the consulting industry, as these fly by night operators open shop one day, collect money from innocent individuals and run away after a month,” Batth says.
He continues by adding, “We, along with the ministry, civil authorities and police authorities in India are trying to get the system cleaned up so that only genuine and authorized consultants are allowed to practice. We have also approached the Ministry of Overseas Affairs in India to make this association a regulatory body to regulate immigration and education consultants in India. Requirements would include a minimum standard of education, professional conduct and infrastructure, number of applications they have dealt with, in addition regular professional development will be key.”
Another huge problem plaguing Canada’s immigration system is marriages of convenience, also known as sham or fraudulent marriages. Citizenship and Immigration Canada plans to propose a two-year period of conditional residency for foreign sponsored spouses, which the Conservatives plan to implement.
Batth’s goal is to provide services, which are comprehensive, current and innovative with a wide diversity of age, background, experience, interest and special needs to as many people as possible through his convenient, worldwide locations. He also aims at “providing ongoing professional, reliable, honest, efficient, expert, committed and compassionate advice.” In addition, he strives to provide leadership qualities and develop partnerships that support our community’s trust towards global competitiveness.
Can-Asia Immigration deals in all categories of immigration, be it Skilled Workers, Investors, PNP Programs, Business Immigration, Student Visas, Family Category and all other immigration matters. Batth has assisted people from all over the world to immigrate to Canada and understands that immigrating to this nation can offer people a superior quality of life, as well as the freedom to pursue personal and professional goals that might not be otherwise available to them in the countries, in which they presently reside.
Batth was born in Chandigarh, India, where he completed his Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce, then attended the University of New South Wales in Australia, where he completed his Master’s of Business Administration (MBA). He reminisces about his journey to Canada, he arrived in Toronto in 1991, worked hard and then started this business and today is a leading immigration consultant in Canada.
Batth is an ICCRC member and a Regulated Immigration Consultant, who provides professional consultations and services for his clients. Batth’s success lies in his commitment and an honest opinion to his clients about various immigration programs.
“One of the main reasons I started this company in 1997 was so that immigrants wouldn’t have to face the same problems I did,” he says. “I wanted to provide services for people who wanted to migrate here so they are prepared in advance, and upon arriving, they must be braced to work, as the first six months are full of hardships. We guide our clients and provide a realistic vision of life in Canada and all the benefits which are open to them.”
