I have also had very good reports about an immigration lawyer, based in Toronto.
His name is Stephen Green and can be reached at 416-862-7880. His E-Mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using an immigration lawyer will speed up the process & help you avoid the usual pitfalls. They will also tell you up front if you will be eligible.
