Tell us how we can help

Are You A Temporary Resident?

A person who is not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident or refugee claimant is a temporary resident.

At Contreras Law, we can help you navigate the rules and can help you keep your temporary residence, change your temporary residence to a different type, and help you put together a plan of action to get permanent residence.

Do You Know The Rules That Apply To You?

There are many different types of temporary residents. There are, for example, foreign workers (temporary residents with work permits), foreign students (temporary residents with study permits) and visitors (temporary residents with visitor records).

Each type of temporary residence is different. It’s important that temporary residents not only know what type of temporary resident they are, but also the rules that they need to follow in order to keep their temporary residence.

Our Lawyers Can Guide You Through Each Step

At Contreras Law, we know that one size does not fit all and that it often takes several different steps to get permanent residence. Give us a call at (604) 917-0473. We can help you put together a plan of action so that you can either get temporary residence, keep temporary residence, or put together a plan of action in order to get permanent residence. You can also reach our Port Moody, B.C., office online.

“Johann is very professional. He represented us with our application for Sponsoring a Spouse. He was helpful and open to answer all our questions even after we applied. The result of our application was positive, and we can’t thank him enough. For these reasons, we have chosen to keep him as our representative for our Citizenship applications.”

“I found Johann to be very professional, hardworking, conscientious, courteous, friendly, approachable, available and honest. His out of the box and unconventional thinking has helped me deal with my permanent residence application, in the most efficient way possible.”

“I would highly recommend Mr. Johann Contreras without any reservations as I personally believe he is a model lawyer who genuinely provided consistently outstanding services and managed to rise above and beyond all expectations.”

“I met Johann when I got stuck, and was struggling, from the decline of my BCPNP application (which took more than 2 years after submission). I was hopeless because no one around me said it could be reversed. I contacted many lawyers, and I received only one response, which was Johann. After the first meeting, everything was so quick. I was shocked, due to the (previous) reaction and attitude of BCPNP. Johann made them (become) more careful and quick. In a week, I received my new BCPNP. He reversed it. I cannot thank him enough. I definitely recommend Johann to anybody who needs help and a quick solution regarding immigration. He is the one.”

“If you are looking for a lawyer who will go above and beyond the call of duty and will have your best interest at heart and not his wallet, then Johann Contreras is the man for you. He won my case and helped me keep my Co-operative Housing Association membership. His main concern was helping me keep my home and not how I was going to pay him for doing that. I recommend him, 100%. If it weren’t for him then I would probably be homeless right now. He was well worth every cent and more! Thanks again Johann!”
