About our company
Don Stevens grew up in Central Canada where he finished high school and went on to complete a Bachelors degree in Economics at the University of Winnipeg, and a Masters of Public Administration at the University of Manitoba. He then went on to complete a Bachelors of Laws at the University of Windsor. While he was completing his Masters degree at the University of Manitoba, he was teaching assistant to the Dean of Administrative studies.
He then studied French at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick and Laval University in Quebec and became fluent. He maintains his French to this day. Mr. Stevens became very involved with the law school legal aid clinic first as a counsellor, then as a director. Because the law school is on the border with the United States and Mr. Stevens had a background in immigration, he had a very significant immigration caseload while studying full time as there were very few lawyers practising immigration law in Windsor at that time.
His experience in government includes several terms as a counsellor and manager at the largest student employment center in Canada, for Canada Employment. In his final term with Canada Employment he we was promoted to the position of Assistant Regional Coordinator of Summer Youth Employment Programs in Manitoba. He then moved to British Columbia where he was employed as an immigration officer in Vancouver and Victoria. His last position in government was as executive assistant to the Assistant Deputy Minister of Finance in Victoria.
When he was working at the Ministry of Finance, the province of British Columbia was undertaking some of the largest capital programs in its history, for the completion of the World Exposition in Vancouver, large scale highway projects to open up Central British Columbia, and a highly sophisticated skytrain system in Vancouver.
Mr. Stevens then completed his law degree and in 1989 started his immigration consulting firm in Vancouver. Since opening his business he has travelled to more than 50 countries on 5 continents in an effort to assist skilled workers, family members and business people to immigrate to Canada and many others to work, study and visit. In that time Stevens and Associates has helped more than 10,000 families and individuals to immigrate to Canada. Mr. Stevens understands the needs of families, business people and professionals who are interested in exploring new opportunities in different countries. The head office is located in Vancouver, BC Canada and the company has agents and affiliates in the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, India, China and Brazil.
