Biography

Never weary of a challenge, Sara Goessaert* decided to try her luck in the Great White North in October 2009. She initially came to Montreal under the Belgo-Canadian Work Holiday program and became a permanent resident of Canada in June 2010. Today, she is a dual Belgian and Canadian citizen.

She has a Bachelor in Civil Law from the Université de Montréal, as well as a Belgian Bachelor in Law and Masters in Public Law. Having studied and worked in French, English and Dutch, she is fully trilingual, and well-versed in Canadian, Québec, and Belgian law.

Passionate about immigration, Me Goessaert updated the course material for continuing education of the Quebec Bar for Immigration Lawyers in the final year of her LL.B., and soon after started practicing Immigration law in Montreal.

As such, she has handled and worked on a vast range of Work Permits and Economic Immigration applications, as well as Citizenship Revocation cases, Sponsorship, Humanitarian and Compassionate applications, and Refusal of Passports.
