Ferreira & Koach "a name to trust"
Ferreira & Koach traces its origins back to 1975 when both founders started their careers with the Ministry of Immigration. Peter Ferreira and Edward Koach worked their way to senior positions in the Ministry. The two founders' varied experience and commitment made them one of the most respected and successful Immigration Consulting firms in Canada.
In the same year of the opening of the firm, 1986, branch offices opened in Shanghai, China and Hong Kong. Over the years we have served thousands of clients who are now successfully settled in Canada and Australia. The founders were pioneers to form the 'Organization of Professional Immigration Consultants' (OPIC), which regulated the practice of Immigration Consultants.
Our firm commitment to provide the best professional services started bringing us business worldwide. In 1988 we started consulting many immigrants from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and the Middle East. In the Middle East we work with a large number of clients in Bahrain, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. Based on the high demand from the Middle East area, we formed a Regional office in Bahrain in 1996 and representatives were appointed in Mumbai & Bangalore.
Today, Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants Jason Ferreira and Sean Koach continue to provide the same services to their clients, as the in-depth knowledge and unique experience with Citizenship and Immigration Canada has been passed to them from their fathers, who remain as senior advisors to the company. Both consultants travel regularly to the branch offices around the globe to maintain a close working relationship with you and our staff, ensuring that the process works efficiently for our clients.
An initial screening of candidates ensures all applicants meet the requirements. Information is synthesized into well-positioned, detailed and concise application. It is our companies' policy to remain in constant contact with our clients throughout the application process and to provide detailed guidance and preparation for all steps involved in the process. After receiving the visa, we provide guidance in initial settlement and further establishment in Canada. Over the years this guidance has helped clients to settle in Canada successfully.
The range of services include:
- Immigration Consultancy for Canada and Australia in following Categories:
- Independent Skilled Workers
- Assessment for certain academic qualifications
