Licensed and Approved

Vanessa Routley is among the only immigration lawyers in Egypt to be officially licensed and approved by the Government of Canada. Unlicensed competitors operate in the shadows and never write their firm name on official immigration paperwork. Don’t trust unlicensed immigration lawyers: when your application falls apart, they will keep the fees they charged you and disappear.

As a licensed Canadian lawyer, you can trust Vanessa Routley to ensure your investment migration dreams.

the most popular questions

Q: Do you accept any client who wants to immigrate to Canada?


A: No. We can only offer expert, quality services to a select list of clientele. We only take on cases we expect to win, and we only do investment-based immigration applications. We do not take clients under the Federal Skilled Worker program; we do not accept skilled workers; we do not prepare applications for student visas; and we do not do any refugee or asylum cases.


Q: What do I get when I hire your firm?



  • • All of our clients attend an exploratory trip to Canada, which gives them an opportunity to understand the business environment before committing to invest.
  • • Each client meets face-to-face with the immigration lawyer and receives a detailed, written immigration assessment tailored to them personally.
  • • Once we accept you into our portfolio, we connect you to licensed professionals to prepare your supporting documentation, including valuations for your real estate, preparation for language testing, and all additional application components.
  • • You maintain direct contact with your lawyer until you receive your Permanent Residence status. We can also help you apply for a Canadian passport when you qualify.


Q: How long is the processing time to immigrate as an investor?

A: All programs have different processing times. The average processing time is 3-6 months for the first stage, “Nomination”, plus 3-6 months for the second stage, “Permanent Residence Approval To Travel”. We have had applications fully completed in 8 months or less, but we have seen complex cases take as long as 2 years for completion.

Q: How do I know you are licensed to do this kind of work?


A: Check our status on the Law Society of Upper Canada database, and verify our credentials. You may call our licensing body at +1- 416-947-3315.


Q: Is my nomination guaranteed?

A: The final decision on your application is made by an immigration officer. If you provide us with accurate information and follow our advice, we will prepare a qualifying application with very high chances of approval. If you deviate from our advice, submit false documentation, or withhold material facts, we cannot guarantee the outcome.
