More Information:

Chi-Young Lee, often referred to as Chi, boasts an impressive ability to juggle a bustling immigration practice while raising two young boys, a feat that suggests she might have discovered more hours in the day than the rest of us. Her journey in immigration law began in 2011 when she first became part of the team at McCrea, after dedicating her efforts to a nonprofit focused on assisting foreign live-in caregivers. Despite an eight-year stint in Toronto—a city she left only to be lured back by McCrea's compelling call (and possibly its proximity to excellent sushi)—Chi's expertise in immigration law has only deepened.

Throughout her career, Chi has been instrumental in navigating the complexities of both temporary and permanent residence applications, making significant strides particularly in Ontario. She has become something of a savant with the Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program (OINP), crafting numerous successful applications with an expert touch.

Not content with solely practicing law, Chi also contributes to the academic realm, sharing her knowledge and passion for economic immigration as a professor at Queen's University. Her course forms part of the university's Graduate Diploma in Immigration and Citizenship Law program, where she shapes the minds of future legal experts in this field.

Chi's pursuit of legal excellence isn't confined to any one jurisdiction. She boasts a collection of law society licenses from British Columbia, Ontario, and Manitoba, underscoring her broad expertise and commitment to serving a wide array of clients across Canada.

Previous Work Experience:

  • Started at McCrea in 2011, focusing on immigration law for foreign live-in caregivers.

  • Took an eight-year professional detour in Toronto, working with a leading immigration firm.

  • Expertise in handling complex temporary and permanent residence applications, especially proficient with the OINP program.

  • Teaches Economic Immigration at Queen’s University as part of their Graduate Diploma in Immigration and Citizenship Law program.

  • Holds law society licenses in B.C., Ontario, and Manitoba, showcasing a versatile legal practice across provinces.

Chi is the go-to professional for navigating the intricacies of permanent and temporary residence, study permits, visitor visas, citizenship, and family sponsorship applications. Her vast experience, coupled with a proven track record of success, makes her an invaluable asset to anyone looking to navigate the complexities of Canadian immigration law.
