After very long time of waiting for this day, after a lot struggle, ups and downs the unbelievable happened. Thanks to Veronika Barbakadze and Jenny Katkova-Brown and to everybody in Jane Katkova and Associates office, I’ve got my VISA that will allow me to change my future. With my unusual story, my visa process was very complicated, unexpected and with low chance of success. Since the very first day, Veronika Barbakadzewas in touch with me almost on daily basis… There are no words that can describe her personality and her professionalism as well as her commitment to her client’s goals. This is a new beginning and definitely a new step in a new world of opportunities, first step in a very long journey that will eventually will change my life.

Today I got the news from your office that my Mom’s H&C application was approved! I am so happy that I can’t help crying. I’m going to tell Mom about it tonight – we have to prepare her: good news requires right presentation too. Thank you so much for your professionalism and the job you’ve done! I am so grateful to Jane Katkova & Associates and Anastasia and everybody who took part in this! Thank you very much for all you do for people, with utmost respect!
Tatyana, Calgary, Canada
We contacted Jane Katkova & Associates for assistance with an LMIA application for a foreign temporary worker we were looking to hire. Anastasia Kononenko assisted with our case. We found everyone at the office to be 100% invested in our case and the success of it. It was very comforting to know we had a team of professionals on our side. In addition to this support, the knowledge the team brought forth was immeasurable. We had attempted this application without legal assistance, with no luck. Finally, with the knowledge that your firm had, we were finally able to get a positive response. I would definitely recommend your services to any other company attempting to hire a foreign worker.
Maria Berger, Veolta Electric, Toronto
I would like to thank Jane Katkova, Irena Lasker and Dasha Bosaya at Jane Katkova & Associates, who helped the process for Permanent Resident status under humanitarian and compassionate program go smoothly. From the beginning it seemed to be stuck somewhere in the bureaucratic process, but Jane and her staff were so professional and efficient, they helped the procedure go fast and very smoothly. Jane has extensive experience in the immigration process. She is also well-versed in Canadian immigration policy, and keeps up with the latest trends in immigration law. From your first conversation with Jane, you immediately become aware of her integrity and commitment, and moreover, the passion she exudes for her work. Phone calls and emails were answered in a timely manner. Information I requested about the process was promptly forwarded. Jane and her staff were always courteous and attentive, making me feel that my case was the only one being handled by the firm, when in reality I was likely one of hundreds of clients. I highly recommend the Jane Katkova & Associates.

I had a few questions about bringing my parents here from Kazakhstan so I turned to Jane Katkova and she was very knowledgeable in all aspects and complexities of Canadian immigration. Thanks!
One of your clients
I am writing to thank Jane Katkova and her staff for helping my spouse and I to successfully apply for permanent residency in Canada. Jane and her associates helped to make our immigration application go smoothly. They were there to answer any questions and make sure that we had a strong application when it was submitted. She gave very good advice and kept us at ease throughout the process. I recommend Jane and her associates for anyone who is applying for immigration into Canada.
Robert J. G. Forsyth, Hamilton, Canada
The level of service provided by Jane Katkova & Associates far exceeded my expectations. This is a very professional, knowledgeable and approachable team. Jane Katkova and her staff practically took care of every detail, minimizing time and effort from my side. They made my wife’s immigration process fast and smooth and I was impressed by their service efficiency. Without a doubt I highly recommend them!
Noe Soto Leos
Our family has known Jane Katkova since 1997, when after evaluating our file she accepted our case to work to obtain a Permanent Residence Visa in Canada. Our case was complicated as we were applying from a third country. It took 2 years of mutual efforts to get a positive result. During this time, Jane personally maintained contact, calling us and updating on the status of our case, giving us professional advice and encouraging us. In 1999, our family successfully moved to Canada and our nearly first visit was to Jane Katkova’s office where we got a warm welcome and also handy tips about what our steps should be to set up our living in Toronto. Jane gave us a list of useful contacts, my first resume was composed and translation services provided. We would definitely recommend to everyone in need of immigration services who is looking for positive result to deal with Jane Katkova and Associates.
Alexander Agafonov & Family
There are situations in life that despite your very best intentions, things happen the way they happen and push you to do things that you would very much prefer to do differently. In my situation the matters of business and family demanded my presence in Moldova thus preventing me from returning to Canada in the timeframe required for maintaining my permanent residency status. Once I was able to come back I realized that my PR status is in jeopardy and I might not be able to stay reunited with my family.
This is when I discovered Jane’s practice. After presenting to her my doom and gloom situation I immediately felt better observing the confidence and the knowledge with which she approached the subject. While she never downplayed the seriousness of my situation she dealt with it calmly and diligently. I was really awed at the level of attention to the detail, persistence and pragmatism with which all the actions and ultimately the resolution were planned. 0It was a difficult and laborious process for Jane where all the heavy lifting was done by her with me only supplying the required documents and answering her question. I was morally preparing for the worst or at the very least for a long process of denials and appeals and was very pleasantly surprised when on the first attempt Jane won the case. I was surprised but Jane wasn’t because she knew all along what she was doing and she knew she would win this. Now I am reunited with my family and can stay here.
Thank you so much Jane!
