About Immigration Care

Immigration Care, founded in 2008, offers immigration advice by a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). Martine Varekamp-Bos manages the Immigration Care team and is licensed to practice Canadian immigration law. Immigration Care holds an international employment agency license in the province of Alberta and Martine is an Alberta Commissioner of Oaths.

Martine essentially immigrate, from the Netherlands, to Canada twice. Once as a teenager with her family as self-employed farmers and the second time with her husband, whom she sponsored. Growing up and still living on a dairy farm, with her husband and 3 kids, she has close ties to the agricultural sector and, inadvertently, specializes in agricultural migration.

In 2003, she graduated from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland with a degree in Marketing; followed by an Immigration Consultant Certificate obtained from Bow Valley College in Calgary in 2008. She passed her full skills exam to become a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant and subsequently opened Immigration Care in the same year.

She has spoken before the Red Deer Chamber of Commerce, Central Alberta Rural Manufacturing Association, the Canadian Association of Farm Advisors, the Battle River Alliance for Economic Development, Agriculture Industry Labour Council of Alberta and Alberta Pork,


Refugees
