Frequently asked questions

What is Pursuit?

As immigrants ourselves, we realized that there is no single, easy way for aspiring migrants to apply for a Canadian PR and build the life of their dreams - without spending a lot of money. While there's a lot of information out there (and no shortage of lawyers or consultants, too), we wanted to build a better path for desirable, highly skilled immigrants to get a PR and find a job so they can start their new lives in Canada. Pursuit, our invite only program for very skilled workers, is built to be that "better way".

Who's on the team?

We're a growing team of engineers, designers and product people who are frustrated with the way immigration works for skilled people today and think can build a better way.

A little about the founders: Zaki, originally from Pakistan, is a serial entrepreneur who has lived and worked in four countries so far. Over the years, he's employed many very skilled immigrants at his businesses, an experience which directly led to the inspiration behind Pursuit. Gautam is a Stanford grad who faced his fair share of uncertainty with immigration while living in San Francisco, Singapore, London & Santiago and wants to make the process as easy as possible for people like him. Finally, Josh is a practicing Canadian immigration lawyer. Growing up in Canada, he quickly learned to appreciate both the benefits of diversity as well as the challenges faced by potential immigrants in their new lives.

What exactly is Pursuit?

We met with both successful and aspiring skilled immigrants all over the world and built Pursuit to be the service they wish existed. While we are very selective (only 4% of applicants get in!), those that do get in get assistance and support with their Canadian PR applications, access to top technology employers in Canada and a dedicated concierge to help make their move as seamless as possible, all backed by our amazing money-back guarantee!

How much does Pursuit cost?

You can apply for Pursuit to check if you are eligible for free. We don't charge to check your score. If accepted, our fee is an affordable $200 for unlimited access to Pursuit. We also offer a Premium plan in case you'd like phone support from a real Canadian lawyer. We only invite candidates we are certain we can help secure a PR and will find a great job in Canada, so your fee is covered by our money-back guaratee. If you complete your application but aren't able to get your PR, we'll refund your fee. It's that simple.

Keep in mind that this introductory price won’t be around for long.

How does the process work?

Once you're admitted to our program, the time taken to complete your move to Canada depends on the amount of work you're putting into the move and how prepared you are. Generally, there are 3 steps:

  • Collect your documents & language score
  • Complete your Express Entry profile
  • File your application

Expect the whole process to take between 2 to 5 months, with a total of under 10 hours of work required on your part (plus giving the IELTS language test).
