Prior to joining our firm, Billie worked for over 11 years within Citizenship and Immigration Canada in a variety of capacities. Her career within CIC (now IRCC) started as a summer student at the port of entry in Coutts, Alberta. She continued on as a senior immigration examining officer at the Edmonton International airport, then moved on to take up an enforcement officer role in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She completed her career with CIC as the admissions officer in the Lethbridge, Alberta office prior to its closing in 2012.
Billie completed her immigration consultant certification and obtained her designation as a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). As an immigration consultant, she represents our immigration clients in navigating the complexities that exist within the department of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. She utilizes her past experience as an adjudicating officer to enhance the quality of immigration representation she offers to all of our immigration clients and provides direct support in communicating with IRCC when difficult and challenging situations arise.
Billie offers particular expertise assisting firm clients in reviewing applications prior to submission. Our firm feels very fortunate to have an x-immigration officer like Billie within the fold.
