  • The best one can choose for immigration services! Alexander professionally managed us throughout the whole process by giving hand in every second being available anytime, we knew that we were secured as he was our advisor. Thanks to him we got our PR less than a year, which is amazing! Thank you! We definitely recommend his services.

  • Alex Harchenko is a trustworthy immigration professional! I was referred to Alex by a friend f mine when my case was in a dead end, I literally was desperate... Prior to coming to MaxWin, I was cheated by so called ''immigration consultant'' (fortunately, she is not practicing any longer). Alex found a solution and supported me through the whole process answering all my questions in a timely manner. Alex was giving me the feeling that we will win no matter how complicated was my case (it was really complicated). If plan A didn't work, we went to plan B. He is very experienced legal professional and I actually referred a lot of my friends to him. Most of them already got their PR, some of them - in a process. Thank you Alex for my PR! I was a pleasure working with you!

  • When I called Maxwin Immigration Office for the first time I had really bad and stressful situation with my immigration case. Not only it was hard to figure out immigration itself, it is also a good part of a pressure coming down when you don't know what exactly to do now. Alex and his team made me feel a lot more secure right from the beginning, so I decided I will be working with them. Definitely very experienced and professional team I can't remember a question that wasn't answered and I have asked thousands of them. Lots of work been done since and I'm finally happy camper with my papers.

  • Maxwin immigration company was the first place where I came for a piece of advice regarding immigration processes in Canada. After the first consultation, I decided that I trust these knowledgable people who will definitely work in a professional and trustworthy manner.
    Aleks Harchenko became not only an immigration consultant but, moreover, a friend. Any question, concern, I knew that I always can ask and rely on him. In addition, Aleks knows the answer even before you ask him. He thinks 10 steps ahead. That really impresses me!
    I am referring all my friends who need help with immigration to Canada to Aleks, and will do that in the future.
    Based on my personal experience, I can say that I am fully satisfied and happy to become a permanent resident of Canada today!
    Aleks, thank you so much! It's your one more win!

  • Hi everyone, I've been working with Alexander Harchenko and wanted to say that I am very happy to have such a dedicated, fully involved with integrity and supportive professional immigration lawyer who helped me and a few my friends to get our Permanent Residency status in Canada. Now he will be helping me with a sponsorship process of my parents who I am bringing to Canada. You will be truly satisfied with work that he will be doing for you and results that you will be getting out of this work. Very detailed oriented which is one of the key factors in this practice. Thank you.

  • I would like to express my utmost satisfaction with the services provided by Maxwin Global.
    My immigration consultant was Alex and he made the seemingly complicated and tedious process of becoming a permanent resident (I applied under the Skilled Worker program) a breeze for me. I was holding the sought after PR card in less than a year after our first consultation with him!
    Alex is extremely knowledgeable in his field of practice and always updated on all and any changes taking place in the Canadian immigration legislation. He was giving me valuable advice and guidance on every step of the way and immediately informed me of any issues to be addressed, progress in my application status etc. I never had to liaise with CIC myself or even worry about writing a cover letter!
    Alex is the type of person who is so thorough in anything he does for a client that he would rather call back and double check even the smallest detail, letter or a digit than make a careless but costly mistake. The amount of time we spent on my application, in person and by phone, is worth a lot more than the price I paid for the package. And to be fair, I paid exactly what I was told about from the very start of our work and not a dollar more.
    Alex is very approachable, positive and easy to work with, and it is with my great pleasure that I would recommend anyone to engage him as your advisor of choice.
    Good luck!

  • Working with Alex from Maxwin Immigration was a true pleasure. He made the process of obtaining PR very pleasant and stress free, by showing confidence in the case, staying up-to-date with the latest immigration changes and amazing attention to detail. With no doubt in mind I would recommend him to anyone who is seriously considering applying for PR or any other immigration-related matters. Thanks Alex, I'm sure our paths will cross again.

  • Профессионалы во всех отношениях. Обратившись за помощью получили услуги, которые превзошли все наши ожидания. И самое главное что результат взаимоотношений с компанией оказался 100%. Советую всем кто интересуется иммиграцией и образованием в США и КАНАДЕ, но до сих пор наскакиевает на грабли взаимоотношений с непрофессионализмом компаний с пост-советского пространства. Лучше иметь дело с людьми которые непосредственно знают рынок иммиграции и образования изнутри и держат руку на пульсе этой сферы, а не изввне.
