Canada Abroad is physically based in Canada and South Africa but can assist clients from around the world with their goal of immigrating to Canada. We have assisted clients from numerous countries including South Africa, the United Arab of Emirates, the United Kingdom, Australasia, Africa, Vietnam, the Philippines, India and the United States of America and many many more.
Our Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC), Deanne Acres-Lans, was born and raised in British Columbia, a diverse and stunningly beautiful province on Canada’s west coast, home to the city of Vancouver. After working for the government as a Canada Border Services Officer with a focus on immigration, she became a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (ICCRC #508363) and set up Canada Abroad, which for many years operated from an office in South Africa. Eventually, the call of Canada was too strong to ignore, and Deanne is now based in Ottawa, Canada’s capital city.
Deanne has over 12 years of experience in the Canadian immigration industry, including 5 years as a Canada Border Services Officer, with a focus on immigration. Deanne has also gone through the immigration process herself (to South Africa) and is able to relate to our clients on a personal level.
