Frequently asked questions

What is Pursuit?

As immigrants ourselves, we realized that there is no single, easy way for aspiring migrants to build the lives of their dreams. And 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 visa, find a job and start their new lives. Pursuit, our invite only program for very skilled workers, is exactly that program.

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. If we invite you to be part of our program, our fee is a simple, affordable $200 for a year's worth of access, or $30 monthly if you prefer that. We only invite candidates we are certain we can help secure a PR and find a great job in Canada, so your fee is covered by our money-back guaratee!

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

How does the money-back guarantee work?

We only work with 4% of applicants who apply, because we want to focus on folks we think we can help find a great job in Canada! If you apply and are accepted to our program, we will refund your $200 fee if we are unable to get you at least 1 job offer within 6 months of your PR approval. We're confident it won't come to that though - we haven't had to return a single fee to date!

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:

  • Get a PR
  • Find a Job
  • Make the Move

Step 1, getting a Canadian PR, typically can take between 2 and 6 months, largely dependent on your PR score. We help you file your application for a PR, assisting you through an interactive guide as well as direct, continuous access to a Canadian immigration lawyer.

Once your PR is approved, We'll start setting up interviews for you at top Canadian technology companies. Since we only work with the best, most candidates are able to get an offer within a month.

Once you're ready to make the move to Canada, our concierge service will help you get linked with almost everything you need to kick off your new life, such as a place to stay, a bank account and phone/internet service!
