About me

I am a Brazilian national with Canadian citizenship and mother to two Canadian children. My parents and siblings are here in Canada as well, and when it comes to the immigrant experience, everyone in my family has a different story to tell.

I started working as a paralegal in a small immigration consulting practice in Toronto, wanting to help people through their immigration experience. I understood first-hand how important it was for people to have someone honest, knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate on their side as they worked through their immigration process. When I moved to Vancouver I joined a large immigration practice where I further developed my knowledge and experience, working alongside Canada’s top immigration lawyers.

In 2006, I began my own immigration consulting practice, with the goal of offering clients a more flexible, cost-effective alternative to help them achieve their immigration needs. To date, I’ve helped hundreds of people achieve their dreams to live and work in Canada.

I am a member in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC)."

My Work

At Patricia Nathan Immigration Consulting, I offer a wide range of Canadian immigration services, whether you are planning to come to work, study or visit.

About half of my practice, working with individuals and corporate clients, is focused on the British Columbia Provincial Nominee Program (BCPNP). I also work on family sponsorship applications and all different types of study and work permit applications.

Why work with Patricia Nathan Immigration Consulting?

My business is built on four principles: honesty, knowledge, experience and compassion. I call it “Immigration the Patricia Nathan way.”

  • Avoid costly mistakes – time and money – in your application. I am fluent in English, Portuguese and Government Forms (a confusing language if you don’t speak it all the time!). I’ll ensure your application is accurate and provides the information Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is looking for.
  • Find the right immigration option for your particular situation.
  • Benefit from my own immigrant experience and two decades working to bring hundreds of other people into Canada, safely and legally.
  • Understand Canada’s immigration process and what it means for you and your case.
  • Work with someone with a genuine desire to help you be in Canada.
  • Speak to me directly whenever you have questions and concerns about your application.
