ImmiCan is a boutique immigration law firm offering immigration service to business investors, spouses and families, international students, and workers from around the world. I would even say that we truly are an international business based in the heart of Vancouver Island – not only does our team in Nanaimo consist of two team members with different nationalities, who choose to make the harbour city their home – so far we have dealt with clients from more than 40 countries and counting.
The Founder Yuri Ahuja came to Nanaimo to study MBA at VIU. He started his work journey as a VIU MBA Business Development Intern later transitioning into law from being an internationally trained lawyer to becoming a Barrister & Solicitor with the Law Society of British Columbia.
We chose to set up in Nanaimo due to its strategic geographic location. It is right in the centre of Vancouver Island, about 20 minutes away from Downtown Vancouver, easy connection to the mainland by ferry, sea plane, Helijet. It is a highly attractive destination for business investors providing the right environment to establish and grow. The cost of operating a business and living costs are almost 40% less than a metropolitan cities like Victoria or Vancouver. Nanaimo not only provides a comparative luxurious lifestyle environment but also a perfect business environment thus attracting a lot of talent as International Students, Doctors, professionals, managers, trades, nurses, and other worker streams. It is also drawing business investment from new immigrants from all over the world in several industries up and down the island.
On one single day it is possible to start your day with a walk on the beach, followed by time in the office and still have the option to go kayaking, fishing, golfing or skiing, and still attend an evening event.
