DONOVAN H. FRANCIS M.A., J.D. Founder & Managing Lawyer

Hi I’m Donovan.

As the founding lawyer at GOOSELAW™ Immigration, I help businesses and individuals inside Canada and from around the world with their Canadian immigration matters. I draw on my expertise as a Canadian educated lawyer and as a proud immigrant to Canada, to provide high-quality and personable immigration services.

Your immigration application will be advantaged by my experience providing legal immigration advice and support to mobility groups, human resources, legal departments and in-house compliance teams at start-Ups, medium sized and large multinational companies.

I lead the GOOSELAW™ Immigration law firm in supporting Canadian startups and billion dollar multinational corporations as well as families and individuals with their immigration needs. Together we help clients navigate complex immigration regulations, including those related to international trade agreements such as NAFTA, CETA and GATS. I also lead the firm in providing support with various work permit categories, including intra-company transferees and NAFTA professionals as well as labour market impact assessments (LMIA) and Global Talent Stream applications.

During my free time, I love exploring the great outdoors with my family, especially during the summer when we go camping. I also have a deep passion for travelling and have been fortunate enough to explore many parts of the African continent.
