Caribbean Nurses + Betty's Law Office


Betty's Law Office is proud to offer Caribbean nurses and personal support workers (PSWs) the quickest pathway to citizenship in Canada. With our extensive knowledge of immigration law and experience working with healthcare professionals, we are able to guide our clients through the process efficiently and effectively.

The Canadian government recognises the important contributions that nurses and PSWs make to the healthcare system, and has implemented a special program to fast-track the immigration process for these professionals. The program, known as the Canadian Experience Class (CEC), allows nurses and PSWs who have worked in Canada for at least one year to apply for permanent residency.

The CEC program is designed to be simple and straightforward, with minimal paperwork and a quick turnaround time. Betty's Law Office can help you navigate the process and ensure that your application is complete and accurate. We will work closely with you to gather all necessary documentation and provide guidance on how to prepare for your interview.

Betty's Law Office is also experienced in working with the Caribbean Nurses Association and other relevant organisations to help our clients succeed in the immigration process. We understand the unique challenges that Caribbean nurses and PSWs may face, and are committed to providing personalised support to help you achieve your goal of becoming a Canadian citizen.

If you are a Caribbean nurse or PSW who is looking to immigrate to Canada, contact Betty's Law Office today. We are dedicated to helping you achieve your dream of becoming a Canadian citizen as quickly and smoothly as possible.
