Study Permit for Gerlie


FROM LEFT TO RIGHT: CJ Benito, Gerlie Garnica, and Carl Benito.

Gerlie Garnica originally entered Canada on February 20, 2014 to start a new chapter in her life. She worked as a Food Counter Attendant in a small town called Rocky Mountain House in the province of Alberta. Time passed by so quickly Gerlie didn’t notice certain important details – like her work permit expired on February 19, 2016.

On February 24, 2016 she sought out the help of Immigration Consultant Carl Benito in Edmonton, Alberta. Gerlie traveled over 200 kilometers to get Carl’s help. Carl explained her options considering that it was past her work permit expiration date and they decided that the first step was to apply for a Study Permit. The application was sent to Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) on March 11, 2016.

On April 7, 2016, Gerlie received the good news that her study permit application was approved. Gerlie describes the services Carl provided as fast, efficient and reliable. She found Carl through a friend who also was helped by the immigration consultant.

Carl considers his work in immigration consultancy as his own way of honoring God. His experience as member of the Alberta Legislature (2008-2012), his exposure to people of various origins as well as his devout faith in God have inspired Carl to dedicate himself to helping immigrants. As an immigrant himself, Carl fully understands that finding work, extending status and moving to Canada is an extremely challenging process. That is why he prayed hard that God may use him as instrument in helping immigrants find work, study, extend their permit and re-unite with their loved ones through various immigration processes, including permanent residency and citizenship in Canada. Carl is not only sincere, honest and hardworking, he is also trustworthy as his only desire is to honour God in everything that he does.
