Lending a hand for typhoon Ondoy victims and immigration concerns

Here's one good news for immigrants or for Canadian citizens who are processing to have their loved ones from the Philippines migrated to Canada but are greatly hindered by the current mishap. While rummaging around for some immigration sites, I found a newspost that the Government of Canada will help out Typhoon Ondoy (Intl name Ketsana) victims thru special prioritization with their immigration needs to Canada.

In lieu of the Super typhoon's disastrous wake in the Philippines- most especially Luzon and Metropolitan Manila, the Canadian government is quickly setting up measures for Canadians and permanent residents to be reunited with their loved ones here in the Philippines by extending a welcome to those who wish to come to Canada.

Now Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) visa office in the country will respond on a priority basis for disaster victims. This will apply to new and existing applications from Canadian citizens, Permanent residents and Protected persons who have close family members in the Philippines. Applicants must identify themselves as being directly and significantly affected by the disaster and notify CIC. Applicants for Temporary residence who are also affected by the disaster (provided they can identify themselves) will also be given priority processing.

On the other hand, I visited a couple of immigration consultant websites for a couple of days now in order to acquaint myself with migration to Canada concerns and I found this website- Better Life Immigration Consultants Inc. really very helpful.

They offer up to date infos, user friendly website features and quick assistance for everyone's queries and concerns.
