- We will save you valuable time by completing your application on your behalf
- You can expect shorter processing times as no delays will be caused by missing or incorrect documents or information
- We are authorized by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to represent you in your Canadian immigration application, which means we can act on your behalf in all dealings with IRCC

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 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 Canada Abroad is now based in Canada. In particular, Deanne decided to move into private practice after seeing first-hand the amount of immigration scams, which unfortunately continue to affect immigrants and would-be immigrants around the world. As a result, she opened her own company — Canada Abroad — with a focus on honesty and ethical practices.
