We retained Philippe Capelle for an immigration solution to a time sensitive executive hire. Phil is a skilled and pragmatic lawyer. He delivered outstanding results.

Howard Sutton, President, Terra Capital Corporation

With the recent overhaul of the Temporary Foreign Workers Program, the deep knowledge that Capelle Kane offers has become increasingly important. They have guided the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra through the changing rules of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program to ensure our success.

Shannon Whidden, Executive Director

As a Director of Human Resources for a local high technology company, I relied on Capelle Kane to help me understand the intricacies of the immigration rules. Betsy made the immigration process easy for my employees and I.

Carolyn Perkins, HR Matters Ottawa

The day that I was referred to Capelle Kane was when I began to have peace of mind for my clients in need of Canadian immigration advice. They understand the interplay between U.S. and Canadian immigration law. Capelle Kane is my “go to” Canadian immigration firm. I would not send clients anywhere else.

Leslie Holman, Immigration Attorney, USA. President of AILA

After receiving three visa refusals for my wife to join me in Canada, we found Capelle Kane. Betsy was extremely accommodating. She took the time to educate us about our rights under Canadian law. She provided excellent services to us when we most needed it.
