Humble Beginnings

Golden Pinnacle was founded by Yan Chi in 2012, and has grown from humble beginnings a strong team of professionals specializing in a variety of immigration areas. Yan worked for years with immigration lawyers before deciding to start her own practice, putting her vast education and experience to good use in order to help those in need. Yan recognized the challenges in the industry and knew that by starting her own practice and building a strong team it would lead to delivering strong value to future clients.

The Present

Our team consists of authorized, licensed consultants, recruitment professionals, marketing geniuses, technology gurus, and legal personnel. We fully explain every aspect of whatever process our clients need to go through, and we fully verify all participants are qualified and ready to participate so there are no surprises. Our primary focus is helping individuals come to Canada or bring their loved ones to Canada, and at the same time building the financial and economic tools which enable business minded individuals success in Canada.

Since these humble beginnings, we have helped hundreds of students come study in Canada. We have advised hundreds of business investors and private operators on making the economic connections to succeed in Canada. The vision and dream of helping those in need has flourished under Yan’s leadership, and it is just the beginning stage of what is to come next.

Our overseas network connects us with over 25,000 points of contact. We have strong relations in countries like China, Vietnam, and The Philippines. Our clients come from all walks of life and many different situations, hailing from places like Nigeria, Russia, Ukraine, Brazil, Korea, Venezuela, and Japan, just to name a few.
