Marisa Feil graduated with from McGill University with a Bachelor’s degree before pursuing her Master’s in Common and Civil Law from Université de Montreal, one of the top law schools in Canada. She wrote her thesis there on Medical Inadmissibility to Canada and shortly after began her career in Canadian immigration law. After graduation, she began work at one of the largest immigration firms in Canada where she noticed an absence of comprehensive representation for those trying to enter Canada with a criminal conviction.

Acting upon this she thus started her own firm, Foreign Worker Canada, to represent those who were criminally inadmissible as well as to aid with other immigration obstacles. Marisa now assists her clients with the assembly of their applications for entry into Canada, and guides them through the complicated Canadian immigration processes. From clients looking to live and work to those just looking to travel in Canada, Marisa works with a wide variety of temporary and permanent applications to help her clients achieve their Canadian dreams.

Marisa’s ability to reach a wide range of clients has been a large part of why her practice has succeeded. Outreach and marketing efforts, as well as her transparent online presence have helped FWCanada grow into one of Canada’s leading immigration law firms.

Through the success of her own firm, as well as strength of her legal counsel and expertise, Marisa has become a respected authority on matters of Canadian immigration. Besides being frequently contacted to offer her expertise in lectures, conferences, and webinars, she has also been asked to be a contributor in various publications.

From the age of 3 Marisa Feil knew what she wanted to be when she grew up. When asked, she would calmly respond that she would be a lawyer. Ever since then, she has worked towards that goal, and has become the successful lawyer and entrepreneur that she is today. Motivated by her desire to help others experience life in Canada, it is hard to find someone more passionate about their work than Marisa. She proudly plays an instrumental role in aiding people come to Canada who would otherwise be barred from entry.
