Our Immigration Story
My name is Preston Watson. Founder of Watson Immigration and an 8th generation Canadian. My family immigrated to Canada from Ireland in the late 1700's.
In 2008 I traveled to Gujarat, India on a work project. While there, I met me wife, Hema. In 2009 we got married. Shortly thereafter I prepared and submitted Hema's application for Canadian Permanent Residency. The next year, Hema joined me in Canada.
With every trip we make to India, we meet people who ask how I can help get them to Canada. With so many people asking for help it seemed logical to venture into the field of immigration. We help those seeking to either visit Canada temporarily or to immigrate permanently. If your goal is becoming a Canadian citizen, we would be honored to help.
Marrying into an Indian family I heard stories of others and their journey to becoming Canadian Citizens. We understand that starting a new life in a new country can be a challenging task. It is our mission to ensure that every client is treated with respect. We review cases diligently to provide the best possible options for each unique situation. We operate with honesty and integrity.
Our team has visited every corner of Canada. We will assist you to select the part of the country that best suits your lifestyle and provides the best opportunity to make your dream come true.

Inside & Outside Canada, TR to PR Pathway, Express Entry and more.
Whether you are in Canada or not, there are pathways available to come to Canada as a Permanent Resident. Express Entry is a pathway developed to speed up the immigration process which includes the Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker and Federal Skilled Trades. Atlantic Immigration Program (AIP) permits you to immigrate to Canada on the basis of a job offer in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island. The Rural and Northern Canada Immigration Pilot Program (RNIP) includes smaller cities across Canada looking for new immigrants to act as a catalyst for economic growth. Finally, the Provincial Nomination Program is designed for provinces to select candidates who are skilled, educated and/or can fill an immediate or future labour shortage in the province.
Once you spend a minimum of 3 years inside Canada, you likely qualify to apply for Canadian Citizenship. This marks the pinnacle of your immigration journey. The wait to be approved for citizenship is long. We submit your application as quickly as possible so you can become a Canadian Citizen as quickly as possible.

Sponsor your children, parents, grandparents, cousins and more for Permanent Residency.
Bring your family members to Canada. If you are a Permanent Resident or Canadian Citizen you may be eligible to sponsor your family. The most common form of family sponsorship is to bring your spouse, common-law or conjugal partner to Canada. Sponsor your dependent or adopted children, parents or grand parents. If you have one sole living blood relative you may be able to bring them to Canada under Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.
Labour Market Impact Assessment

We help employers source temporary foreign workers from outside of Canada to assist for short-term work needs, such as farming. We take care of the entire process for you.
If you are currently working in Canada and need an additional 50 points for your CRS score to qualify for Permanent Residency through the Express Entry Canadian Experience Class, talk to us about completing an LMIA for PR. We will communicate with your employer and take care of everything.
