About us

Why we do what we do

Canada is ranked as one of the top study destinations in the world for international students due to its world-class education system, diverse multiculturalism, job opportunities, and perhaps most importantly, its immigration pathways.  To begin their immigration journeys, students must first obtain a study permit, which can be a complex and confusing endeavor. Further, for students to meet their long-term immigration goals of settling as permanent residents in Canada, there are many steps and actions to take over this multi-year process.

BorderPass was founded by legal and tech experts in 2020 with a mission to streamline the immigration process for international students via our automated digital solution, resulting in increased approval ratings and enhanced student support. The traditional immigration journey is highly manual, fragmented, and underserved, with newcomers often feeling isolated and alone throughout the process. BorderPass provides an advanced AI-powered software solution for institutions to manage these services and maintains an ongoing relationship with students throughout their immigration journey.
