After having another lawyer do our immigration papers and then our visas being refused 10 months later, we thought our chances getting to Canada had gone. We then met Erwin Gotthold through a Facebook group of South Africans moving to Canada and he immediately contacted us.

His service was professional, friendly, informative and incredibly helpful to say the least. He is trustworthy and communicated clearly every step of the way.

Despite the challenges and delays brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Ergo Immigration provided my family with fantastic service all the way. I am especially grateful of the way in which Erwin kept on encouraging us and providing us with frequent updates on the status of my wife and children's visa applications. I can wholeheartedly recommend Ergo Immigration to anyone seeking professional advice and service related to Canadian visas.


the Du Toit family

Dear Erwin, we cannot thank you enough for the incredible service you gave us during our application for Work Permits. We especially appreciated your efficiency and professionalism despite the challenges of COVID-19. Thanks to your support we have been able to realize our dream of moving to Canada!

What was supposed to be a straightforward PR application, turned more complicated and lenghty because of the Covid situation.  Erwin at Ergo Immigration was there for every step of the process, always available for the many questions that I had.  It’s thanks to his guidance and advice that I got the PR in the end. It would have been a much more difficult and frustrating road to do it on my own.  Thank you Erwin!

We lost more than a year by doing our application ourselves, it was refused because we missed one document and we had to start from the beginning. We were devastated. Erwin came highly recommended to us by our church minister. With Erwin and Ergo immigration we were accepted this time and our whole family is moving to Ontario as soon as Covid restrictions permit. Thank you and God bless you!

Ek kan nie genoeg dankie sê vir Erwin se uitstekende dienste nie. Met my seisoenale kontrak in Amerika het ek begin werk soek in Canada en ek het getwyfel of my dokumentasie en werkspermit in my hand gaan wees voor my kontrak verby was in Amerika maar Erwin was spoedig met al my dokumentasie en ek het my werkspermit voor die einde van my Amerikaanse kontrak ontvang en ek kon van die VSA af vlieg na Canada . Ek sal vir Erwin aanbeveel aan enige persoon opsoek na n uitstekende immigrasie konsultant.


Ds. S. Naudé

I came to Canada in October 2019 to serve as a pastor in the United Church of Canada.  I had a 2 year contract.  Luckily I was granted permission to extend my Work permit for another 2 years till October 2024,  The problem was that I didn’t know how to it myself. (I was helped back in South Africa).  This was when I turned to Erwin Gotthold. I was very nervous and on the edge, but Erwin in his nice, calm and supportive way walked me through all the steps and all the way.
I am forever grateful for someone like Erwin Gotthold.  My next step will be to apply for PR as soon as I finish my final interview.  I am holding all my thumbs. Thank you so much Erwin.  

It is good to know you.

the J.v.Rensburg family

We had no clue if we stood a chance for Canada, and we had absolutely no idea where to start.  We booked a consultation with Erwin when he was in Johannesburg and it was great. Erwin explained everything clearly and in a professional manner. We followed his advice, he applied for our work permits and it was approved. Many thank yous!


the Jacobs family

We had a complicated situation as a result of the birth of our daughter in South Africa. Erwin stood by our side throughout the entire process and was always willing to assist and guide us. Erwin has a deep knowledge of the relevant immigration processes and legal requirements and I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance with their own process, big or small!! Erwin, we can't thank you enough for keeping our family together and for all the support and encouragement.

We retained Erwin at Ergo Immigration to file our immigration, we are tremendously grateful as we are not that young anymore and we did not want to take risks. He explains everything very well, always made time for us, quick follow-up on any question. We would probably never have been approved without professional help. Highly recommending Ergo Immigration.

Joana L.

Dear Erwin, our initial consultation with you was incredibly insightful, it allows us to make an informed decision about immigrating to Canada. We are looking forward to continuing our immigration adventure with you.

Jacques R.

Understanding our situation in South African and doing all the hard work for our work permits and study permits. With complications in our situation, we were never going to make it on our own. Erwin Gotthold is extremely helpful, I highly recommend Ergo Immigration Canada.

Kari-Anne Veldman

Dear Erwin, Thank you again for all your expertise with our LMIA. We are so thankful for the positive result!

the Botha family

After several refusals for my son's visa application, we had no idea how to take him with us to Canada. We were scared to lose our PR status but did not want to leave our 16-month-old boy behind in South Africa either. Erwin managed to get approval for our son, and we are now in Canada with our son! Cannot thank you enough.

die van Wyks

I recommend Erwin to anybody wanting to immigrate to Canada. Erwin Gotthold's professional service made our Canadian dream come true.

Baie Dankie!

Johanna E.

So grateful to you Erwin and Ergo Immigration Canada! Our story: We have PR status, and our children have no status because they was born in Namibia. We already applied with other immigration agents, every times our childrens visas was refused. We heard that Erwin specialise in this kind of case and contacted him for help. We had to provide many more documents this time, and after waiting a long 6 months our children were approved.  As parents we will always be grateful that our family was not separated. Thank you, Erwin, thank you!

Stephanus B

My children remained in the Cape with their mother when I immigrated to Canada. Conditions for my ex-wife changed and my children could no longer live with her. Erwin successfully applied for visas for my children to come to Canada immediately and to live with us while he started the sponsorship procedure. Incredibly happy to have my children safely with me.

Len W.

Being older is a big disadvantage when it comes to emigration. We looked at Australia and other places, but we were "too old". We spoke with Erwin and he explained what we had to do to live in Canada. He said that it would not be a walk in the park, and it wasn’t, but we made it, in many, many small steps, and we now live in beautiful BC.
