About Ann Arbour Consultants Inc.
Immigration Consultants in Toronto & Edmonton
Having escaped a terrorist bomb attack with seconds to spare, Sharmila Perera, decided to leave her homeland and immigrate to Canada under the then professional category. She landed in 2001 with her husband and 3 little children and decided to pave the way for others to experience a life without fear in a land where everyone has equality in life and in opportunities. In 2002 she took a leap of faith and founded Ann Arbour Consultants Inc., operating out of her basement, while looking after her 3 children. 17 years later Ann Arbour is proud to be known as a leader in the industry, having helped thousands of families to settle in Canada through 3 offices in Canada (Toronto, Alberta and partner office in Newfoundland) and through its global offices and representatives in North and South America, UAE, the Caribbean, Asia, South East Asia, Europe and Africa.
