WOW!!!!!!!, I still can’t believe I’m reading this. I kept chanting your name while happily screaming and talking to my wife on the phone!! 🙂
My dear Brooke, in addition to all the incredible gratitude and appreciation my wife & I owe you FOREVER, I will NEVER forget the three intense days of filling for my WP , when you willfully decided to interrupt all your other life activities and rescued me to meet my deadline.
It is next to impossible for me to express my gratitude to you in words. You genuinely helped me open the gate to my life dream!
From the bottom of our six hearts: THANK YOU!

Your support is like missing pieces in my puzzle to complete my WP application. Your instructions are precise, concise, and easy to follow.
I feel it’s great to receive professional and careful service from Whistler Immigration, especially Brooke’s professional work attitude and enthusiasm.
I will enthusiastically suggest Whistler Immigration to my friends and family. I believe that, especially with sophisticated applications such as these Economic Immigration Programs, people should seek the advice of skilled and enthusiastic consultants such as Whistler Immigration.

Miriam Leckenby - IMMPOWER™ Express Entry
“This service was invaluable! As someone who thought I kind of knew what I needed and had read all of the supporting document info online, and had been getting the documents together etc, having the advice and guidance from IMMPOWER on those small details, the extra documents & explanations that no one tells you that you need and that can make the biggest difference between a final yes and a no was fantastic.
I am so much more confident in my application having had IMMPOWER’S support and construction of each of the documents I submitted, specific advice relating to each of my documents & my application, and ruled out so much of the uncertainty and confusion of the application process. It is a service I’m so very grateful to have had and glad will exist for future candidates as well.”

Whistler, Canada, March 2023
Dear Whistler Immigration Team,
This is not a request for information, but I just want to thank you for all your help in the last years.
In January 2021 I had my roadmap consultation with Barbara Kolvekova and she taught me about the ways to Canadian Permanent Residence. Since then, she and other members of your team have assisted me in difficult situations. I am very happy to let you know I finally made it to the finish line by following the Inland Spousal/Common-law sponsorship pathway. I applied on December 2nd 2022 and received my eCOPR on February 13th (73 days!!!). Today was a very important moment for me when I finally got my permanent SIN number so I can work! It has been a long journey!
Last September I temporarily got stuck in the USA, but by showing your PR roadmap (among other documents) to the border officer, I was allowed back in Canada to complete my application inland. You can imagine how valuable that was to me!
Thank you for playing a very important part on my journey by giving me the feeling that it was possible to get PR, and by giving me the information to submit a very successful application.

Hannah Tran - Start-up Visa (SUV) Class
Dear Brooke, thank you so much for being my representative for my Permanent Resident Application over the last 2 years. It was my pleasure to work with you and your Whistler Immigration’s team. Due to the impacts of Covid 19, the process of my application was taking longer than usual and many obstacles had happened but with your great support my result was finally released that can be better. I also highly appreciated your concern whenever I told you about how stressful I was with my venture and you helped me figure out what I should do. I wish you and your business all success in future. Once again, thank you so much.

I want to thank you so much for your kindness and the great help you have given me. I found the meeting extremely helpful. I find that the ability to speak directly with someone about the various possibilities is absolutely essential.

Infinity Enterprises Group - Berneta Asato
Brooke and Whistler Immigration have literally been a lifesaver to our company. She is so savvy with immigration rules and regulations and will always find a way to work out a feasible plan for your immigration needs. We’ve engaged Brooke over the past few years for a variety of immigration challenges (LMIA’s, PR, Work Permits, COVID related immigration struggles) and we have never been disappointed with the outcomes or proposals. When other immigration consultants and lawyers have told us that a employees situation is impossible, Brooke makes the possible happen! If you are in the Whistler area or sea to sky we highly recommend her and her firm for any immigration needs.

Whistler Immigration has been a tremendous support for our employees and our business. Since we began working with Whistler Immigration, our team has saved valuable time and resources from their expert advise and professional guidance, specifically as it pertains to managing foreign workers and changing legislation. Brooke and her team have an expert understanding of managing complex immigration scenarios. Their support is always prompt, professional and personalized. They are well versed in the intricacies and unique requirements for businesses in the Whistler market. When supporting employees with immigration, it is always clear that Whistler Immigration has researched the employee’s background and eligibility criteria, always coming to meetings prepared to discuss and articulate go forward plans. Working with Whistler Immigration has assisted our business in a meaningful way with recruitment and retention, and supported our employees with their immigration needs. I would not hesitate to recommend Whistler Immigration to anyone looking for professional, reliable immigration support located locally in the Whistler community.

Brooke and her team helped me very successfully receive my Canadian permanent residency a few years back. They helped me (and my employer) with absolutely everything. What seemed like an impossible task to me, Brooke took care of and solved. Now I’ve been happily living in Canada since, thank you Brooke and team! I recommend your service to everyone who want to stay in beautiful country.

From our first correspondence with Whistler Immigration, Brooke and team have been there to provide us with reliable, professional, and personalized advice. The team are approachable and have a very personable demeanor.
We initially contacted them on a whim whilst on vacation in Whistler. We enquired about fulfilling a childhood dream of mine, moving to Canada. We spoke on the phone and despite us leaving the next day, they managed to accommodate us later that day. After providing Whistler Immigration with the information, they promptly put together a “road map” for us. This detailed the most probable paths we could go down, to achieve permanent resident status.
After deliberation and careful consideration, we decided to make the jump from the UK and put our trust in Whistler Immigration, to assist us in obtaining PR. Not only was this process stress free, the amount of time saved meant the fees were very economical. This enabled us to focus on work and enjoying our downtime exploring Canada.
During the process, I observed friends going through the same application without assistance. Most had small hurdles to overcome, the smallest was an additional 12 months wait, significant stress and multiple phone calls to immigration Canada. Others have had to return home and complete a different application, costing them time, money and frustration.
Whistler Immigration is very methodical in collecting all information they might need. The team developed a tight strategy to expedite the process as efficiently as possible. From when Whistler Immigration submitted our first application for BC PNP, we had received PR status a little after six months later.
Easily one of the best investments we have made, we are now happily settled in BC and both back to pursuing our careers in beautiful British Columbia. We now get to call Canada home.
