After lot of research, finally We decided to start our PR process for Canada with the help of Winny Immigration. Firstly, Ms Suhani from Surat branch made us understand the entire PR process. Secondly, We were assigned a Case Officer Ms. Norin Shaikh from Ahmedabad head office within a week. She guided us right from the start of the process. She helped us prepare the entire documentation.
