About Us

​Through our partners, we provide immigration services into Canada for companies and individuals.

Our partners listen, ask questions, and help develop an immigration plan uniquely suited to your short and long term needs.

Our network of immigration partners and professional associates in other sectors are well-versed in supporting corporate clients across a wide variety of sectors, ranging from start-ups to large global multi-nationals.

 

In addition to providing full application filing support through a senior RCIC, our partners in other sectors also offer a full suite of advisory services for organizations looking to expand into the Canadian market and for individuals requiring additional related services. Our Canadian partners are industry leaders in legal set up, global taxation guidance, HR programs, and real estate.  

 

Nickel-Lane Immigration currently has Canadian partners and team members based in Toronto, Calgary, and Canmore, Alberta.

Ken Nickel-Lane, RCIC

Managing Director 
Nickel-Lane Immigration

For the past two decades I have been immersed in global mobility, workforce solutions, and immigration services while leading the Canadian operations of global firms, most recently as the Managing Director for Newland Chase Canada. Through that time, I have worked with individuals and corporations in multiple sectors in Canada and around the world, from oil and gas majors to family owned feedlots to individuals looking for a better life in Canada.

 

I thrive on working with my teams and clients, finding solutions that enable people to reach their goals, no matter what the scale and scope. Working globally and building strong relationships with international business partners has been one of my great joys. These referral partners are people I know well and trust to deliver the same quality, service, and care that we do. This group is not a sprawling complex corporate network, this is a lively interactive group of like-minded subject matter experts in their own countries. Together we work with clients to help them regardless of their goals or corporate aspirations, working directly and providing very agile solutions across a wide range of countries.

 

You can learn more from my LinkedIn profile, and if you follow me there you will also see how we live our life here in Canada. Life for us here is all about family, and enjoying the outdoors together, hiking, mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding and enjoying all Canada’s Rockies have to offer.

"Ken is one of the most intuitive sales people I know. He can quickly frame an issue in the context of the big picture and collaboratively build a solution that is relevant, but also gets the specifics of the moving pieces...a very rare combination. He is also wonderful at building networks to collaboratively problem-solve. He builds relationships by delivering value...both with the client and with his colleagues."
