Stéphanie Riccio's expertise and passion for immigration matters knows no boundaries.

With more than 20 years of experience in immigration law, Stephanie provides sound advice on immigration and foreign worker mobility, while overseeing the development of this sector within the firm. She primarily assists companies seeking to hire foreign workers by helping them obtain the necessary permits for employment. As an entrepreneur who founded her own immigration consulting firm, she truly understands the needs of entrepreneurs and the challenges related to the workforce. Her clientele is mostly comprised of Canadian and French companies, but also individuals from Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

Stéphanie holds a well-filled professional passport. During her career, she has acted as a legal advisor in cases related to the mobility of individuals within an international organization located in France. In addition, she spent four years in Asia where she worked for a Canadian financial group by assisting Chinese entrepreneurs and their families in the immigration process to Canada.

Passionate about her field of practice, Stéphanie regularly gives conferences on immigration issues, writes several articles on the subject and periodically gives a training session entitled Les travailleurs étrangers spécialisés: un choix judicieux, mais des processus rigoureux! for the Ordre des conseillers en ressources humaines agréés.
