The Honourable Ahmed Hussen has been appointed as Canada’s newest Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship . He will be replacing the Honourable John McCallum, who will be leaving politics to pursue a diplomatic position as Canada’s Ambassador to China.

Mr. Hussen is a first-term Member of Parliament for the York South — Weston riding in Toronto, Ontario. He garnered national attention as the first Canadian of Somali descent to be elected to the House of Commons. Immigration and refugee issues have defined his life, both personally and professionally. When he was just 16 years old, he arrived in Canada all alone as a Somalian refugee. He dedicated his life to serving newcomers to Canada and aiding in their integration, taking the lead on the revitalization of Toronto’s Regent Park neighbourhood, as well as presiding over the Canadian Somali Congress. Before entering politics, Mr. Hussen was a practicing lawyer specialising in Immigration and Refugee Law, Human Rights Law, and Criminal Law.

Devika and John were excellent. They understood how this process would change my life and helped me get to the US. John was extremely kind and thorough. When my employer in the US ended up trying to take advantage of me, they helped me transfer my visa to a new employer and had so much empathy for my situation and now I have a job in California that makes me so happy while helping others. I am beyond grateful for their kindness and service. I will be using them for any changes to my status going forward.

I and my family want to express our sincere thanks and gratitude to Devika, John and the team at Borders Law firm for assisting us with the PRTD application for my mother at a time when most processing was closed due to lockdowns. They also worked proactively with us to establish a good strategy with back up plans which gave us sufficient information and assurance. Very responsive and forthcoming with information. Proactive in processing but at the same time they put enough time in the application and the supporting details to have high quality of the application. As a result our application was processed in 1 go at a time when it was critical and sensitive time for the family. Thank you again.


Excellent Firm..! Always helpful, friendly and honest with their work. My personal thanks to Devika and Yana for providing excellent service. I highly recommend them for any kind of Visa application.
