Elgin Cannon & Associates


Elgin Cannon & Associates was established in 1995 by Christopher Elgin and Douglas Cannon.  Elgin Cannon & Associates is a law firm that focusses on Canadian immigration. Collectively, the team has many decades of experience.

Elgin Cannon & Associates deals with Canadian refugee law, immigration and citizenship law. The law firm is able to help you prepare your immigration application, attend immigration hearings and challenge negative decisions in the Federal Court.

Christopher Elgin, one of the Partners, has been a member of the British Columbia bar since 1988. Christopher Elgin also worked for the Immigration and Refugee Board for over three years before he left to start his own practice. In 1995, he joined forces with Douglas Cannon.elgin-lawyers

Douglas Cannon attended Osgoode Hall Law School and focussed on immigration and refugee law because he felt it was rewarding. Douglas Cannon has been practicing law in the Vancouver area for over 20 years. He often speaks to community groups, at legal conferences and he is often called upon by the media for commentary or analysis.


The Website

The website for Elgin Cannon & Associates is simple and easy to use. They have provided you with the very basic information about immigration and we feel that this is a bit disappointing. Elgin Cannon & Associates has also failed to provide some of the important online documentation. There is a privacy policy but there is no refund policy or a terms and conditions.

There is information on the other associates that practice at Elgin Cannon & Associates with a short bio on each. We do feel that the law firm has tried to make you see that your experience with them is a more personal one.

There is a Blog and News section on the website, which are the same thing. However, the news that is on the Blog page is old. The newest article that was posted is from three months ago and the one before that is from 2014.


Social Media

There are links on the website for Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. All the links work.

The Facebook page was created in 2012 and it has just over 30 likes. The last post to the page is from the 23rd of April 2015. The posts to the page are however relevant to Canadian immigration and they are helpful.

The Twitter account follows the same pattern as the Facebook page and there isn’t a great deal of activity here either. Elgin Cannon & Associates joined Twitter in 2012 and they have just over 10 followers. The LinkedIn account is just as unimpressive as Elgin Cannon & Associates other social media platforms.

Our Conclusion

Elgin Cannon & Associates seems to be a legitimate law firm, both partners at the firm are registered with the British Columbia bar. There are a few faults with the website but these can be easily fixed.

We do feel that there could be more attention paid to their News/Blog page as this is always a wealth of information for potential clients.
