Pahl and Associates Immigration Law Consultancy
Pahl and Associates was founded in June 2003 by Mr Balvinder Pahl a dual British and Canadian national graduate. The company is based in London, UK but was previously based Vancouver, Canada. Mr Pahl has a law degree from the UK and graduated with a LLB Honours in 1985. He is qualified to practice immigration law in both UK and Canadian jurisdictions.
Mr Pahl is also registered with the ICCRC as an RCIC agent, his number is R416895. Mr Pahl’s areas of expertise are Skilled Worker Immigration, Family Class Applications and Work and Study Permits. Mr Pahl has over twenty years of experience in the immigration field and has a vast amount of knowledge.
The website for Pahl and Associates is quite outdated and is quite basic. There is a lot of information available on the website and they seem quite knowledgeable about the various immigration visas for Canada. When you search for Pahl and Associates it comes up as visa2canada.com.
Pahl and Associates has another immigration company that deals with immigration to the UK. This website is not linked to the immigration to Canada website which is a little strange. The layout of this website is pretty similar to that of visa2canada.com.
The website also warns people of possible scams regarding immigrating to Canada and shares links to check if RCIC agents are legit.
Lack of social media
Pahl and Associates has a Facebook page that has one like nor is there a Twitter page. There is a video for YouTube on their website which is fairly basic. The information on the video makes it seem like Pahl and Associates only deals with Canadian citizens living in the UK.
Social media presence in today’s world is extremely important as it is a form of free advertising for companies.
Are they legit?
When we first came across the website we were a little unsure about the legitimacy about the company. However, upon further research we found out that Pahl and Associates does have a company presence.
When looking for reviews or complaints we found some positive feedback about Pahl and Associates and Mr Balvinder Pahl.
There are also a great deal of testimonials on the visa2canada.com website about the services that Mr Pahl provides.
I can confirm Pahl & Associates were efficient and prompt with dealing with mu Immigration process. They guided me through the application form thoroughly, including the time lines and answered the many questions I had. Without the help of Pahl & Associates, I have no doubt the whole process would have been more stressful. I can not recommend them enough.

Pahl and Associates Immigration Law Consultancy is a law firm with a registered RCIC agent that is in good standing with the ICCRC. Balvinder Pahl is also a qualified lawyer. We feel that with any form of immigration you should be cautious when making a decision on using an agent or a lawyer.
They seem to have a good business presence but their social media is completely lacking. On the visa2canada.com website they warn you about the scams regarding immigrating to Canada. So we can only do the same, proceed with caution and be careful.
- Pahl and Associates is registered with the ICCRC and has a registered RCIC number
