My story that in the family was named as "Canada project" started on the 14th February 2016 with my first email to Galina Vladimirova (a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant at CanadaOpen) to enquire about our chances and perspectives of moving to Canada. Prior to February 2016, I had been serfing over the net trying to figure out on my own whether we could rely on moving and settling in Australia or New Zealand or USA or basically anywhere else as the overall situation in Russia, also employment wise, continued deteriorating. Here I need to step back and say that we = my 13 year old daughter and I, both born and living in Moscow; since the very first years of my professional career, I have been working in media and communications industry, i.e. selling and promoting television channels to operators and video platforms. Even the brief search made it quite clear that media managers are not really required even in those countries with the most loyal immigrant policies, so we weren't really moving anywhere until the day I entered the office of Insight-Lingua (the leading operator of foreign education and also Galina's ex-employer) to enroll my daughter into a 4-week program at a thouroughly selected language school in the UK where totally accidentally - just as I was sharing on my fruitless search and thoughts - Galina's ex-collegues gave me her email with a suggestion to contact her and make some initial enquiries. The response arrived the same day and I could only regret I hadn't dropped into Insight-Lingua before! as quite a lot of time and efforts would have been saved. From the first response already, not only did it become clear that our chances of moving to Canada under Express Entry program were pretty high, but the email itself contained all the instructions of what, when and how. Something that would have taken me months to search, collect and analyze, was provided by Galina in a very clear, detailed and structured manner. All in all, an actual action plan was presented and even from the first sight looked absolutely clear and realistic to follow and complete. A few days later we made a decision that for the coming summer my daughter would attend a 4 week program in ILAC school in Toronto instead of the already chosen language school in the UK and - just a bit outrunning the events - she loved Canada so much that returned back to Canada within just a few weeks and never left Canada again for nearly 1.5 years which took me back in Moscow to complete the process of receiving immigrant visas. During all this time Galina was looking into all matters related to my daughter's visas (including the US visa!), study permits, parents' declarations and all the related documents to ensure that my daughter's staying in Canada at all times remains safe and sound and I could actually focus on fulfilling the requirements of Express Entry program. Within those 1.5 years, I collected piles and piles of documents, took IELTS exam four times so that to gain that highest scores I needed, learned French to B2 level and took TEF Canada in order to add additional scores to my profile, went through a 6-month process of evaluating my diplomas both in Russia and in the UK, had hard times waiting for the passing score to match mine and then waiting for the final decision on immigrant visas to be made. I wouldn't probably even try to count the number of emails Galina and I exchanged between February 2016 and December 2017 (when I finally arrived in Canada), but it has surely been a challenging and also frustrating way to go through as things weren't running smoothly all at once - the diploma evaluation process met lots of hurdles and delays, IELTS got conquered from the fourth time only, TEF Canada didn't bring the desired outcome, profile scores were unexpectedly recalculated when every score was in weight of gold.....and on EVERY occasion - even the smallest one, e.g. to confirm the procedure of paying for diploma evaluations at WES website - Galina was there irrespective of whether it was late evening, weekend or holiday. Prompt, thorough and clear. Encouraging and inspiring. Sharing her own experience and the great stories on living in Canada. Outlining and explaining all existing programs and ways to move forward and gain the necessary scores or get over another hurdle. Taking time to advise on the key pre-arrival actions. Completing all the required paperwork to ensure its 100% accuracy and timely submission. Alerting me day and night whenever any feedback was received and my input was required. Anticipating further actions and steps to ensure the process goes as efficiently time wise as possible....the latter turned out to be vitally crucial as I received my ITA just a few weeks before the record passing score jumped up and is still there! .....it is now three months that I have been in Canada. Everything related to work, housing, driving license, school, healthcare, daily routine has been sorted out smoothly and happily. Well, it is now time to start thinking of bringing my parents over to my new home - Canada. And guess what??? It is time again to call CanadaOpen, ask for Galina and eagerly step on that bumpy but exciting and worth-all-those-efforts road to a better, healthier and happier life. A truly perfect mission - completed by CanadaOpen in the most perfect way.
"After an unsuccessful attempt of applying for a visa through an unlicensed agent, my friends have strongly recommended me to do the second attempt with Galina and her company Canada Open. I visited their office and had an insightful consultation with them where they shared the advice and all the information I needed to know in order to successfully apply for the visitor's visa to Canada. Galina does not waste time and gives a list of all documents required, keeping no secrets and being completely upfront about potential problems or questions from the immigration officers. The result? We got a visitor's visa for 3 years and really happy with the work Canada Open did for us. Super fast services and worth every dollar! I suggest everyone skip the hassle of applying by yourself and instead use the professional services of Galina and her organization. Thank you!"
Zuleika Kazahstan, E-mail: Zuleika.Mashanlo@nsv.kz Dear Galina. My name is Zuleika, I used your services of an immigration consultant in Canada to obtain a visa to Canada. I am very glad that I turned to you, because thanks to your efforts and professionalism, a positive result did not keep you waiting. I was approved a visa to Canada until 2026! Before that, I applied for a visa to Canada in 2014 and was refused, as a result, I had no opportunity to visit my son, who is studying in Canada. I am very grateful to Galina and recommend to everyone if you are looking for a knowledgeable person who could consult you and help you get a visa to Canada, etc. , Then you'd better turn to Vladimirova Galina!

Born in Kazakhstan, Karaganda city. In 2011, graduated from Karaganda Buketov State University with Bachelor’s Degree in Interpretation (English and French). There are certain reasons why I chose to move to Canada: Affordable Education, Multicultural Society, Healthy and Safe Communities, World-Class Language Education, Qualifications Valued Around the World, Land of Possibilities and Possibility of Immigration. In 2011, I got accepted to International Language Academy of Canada (IELTS preparation course). ILAC’s IELTS Preparation course helped me to gain all the skills necessary to take the IELTS test and achieve a desired score.

The college has a record of exemplary teaching, innovative programming, extensive industry partnerships and exceptional student services.

Maksim got Canadian Scholarship as a professional basketball player. Presently, he is an 11 Grade student at High School in Vancouver and he regularly takes part in competitions. We wish Maksim good luck in study and sport!
Applying for my PR I've decided to ask for professional help because I couldn't trust myself with such important process. I wasn't sure I could do it right so I asked a person who helped me with my study visa and application for Canadian college for a recommendation. And I am absolutely grateful. Galina Vladimirova from Canadaopen helped my dream come true. She answered all my questions about the process, was constantly reminding me about dead lines (which I my case was very helpful). Honestly, with Galina's help the entire process seemed easier and less stressful. Thank you.
In March 2016, my wife and I moved to Manitoba, in a small but very cozy and friendly town of Morden. The guys from the company CANADAOPEN,Ltd. helped us to achieve our cherished dream to move to the North American continent. With over 5 years of experience as a mechanic of trucks, I am finally able to get a decent salary, performing my favorite job. It all started with the fact that I got laid off in my company in my native town of Rezh near Yekaterinburg. My wife at tthis time was a University student and worked as a private tutor of English. After talking with her students, she often talked about opportunities to study abroad and about benefits of a foreign degree. We started to chat on various forums dedicated to education abroad, but realistically assessing our financial capabilities, we realized that neither of us will be able to show such amount on our Bank accounts that is required by the Embassy. Also, I was unemployed, so this factor as "no ties with your Motherland" was impossible to disguise. Once again clicking on the enticing promotional offer, I came across the website of the company CANADAOPEN and I was interested in the article about immigration provincial nominee programs. Actually, me and my wife didn't even believe that Canada really needs auto mechanics, seamstresses and handymen, because in our view, only highly skilled professionals with a fluent English could win such a lottery ticket. The offer seemed to be so tempting and we decided to check how it corresponds to reality. We wrote a request to the company, literally within hours received a response and we scheduled an interview on Skype. Immigration consultant Galina Vladimirova quickly and professionally assessed our options and prepared our file to send to Morden. I provided evidence of my experience with many recommendations from my clients and employers;moreover, with the help of my wife I managed to pass IELTS at the desired score, we have alsa compiled a letter that could explain why Manitoba was suitable for us and how we could be useful to the local community. Two months later we were invited to Morden for an interview with the members of the local community. Galina arranged for us visa support, booked accommodation. Guys really worried about us and we were looked after, and that gave confidence. We successfully passed the interview, I was nominated to receive permanent resident status. We keep in touch with Galina, her tips are always very useful for us. Thank you CANADAOPEN and Galina for Your participation in our destiny!
