Ian Wood is the President and founder of IJW Immigration Solutions Inc, based in Moncton New Brunswick.
Originally from the United Kingdom, Ian has more than 25 years of experience working in the automotive and aerospace industries, both as a skilled front-line worker and in supervisory positions. Ian moved to Canada in 2005 and became a Canadian citizen in 2011.
Throughout his immigration journey, he realized how complex the immigration processes can be for newcomers. He also noticed that immigration regulations were constantly changing, and many people needed guidance to achieve their immigration goals. This inspired Ian to change his career plans and pursue training as an immigration consultant.
He became a Registered Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) in 2018 and since then he has also become a designated Licensed Foreign Worker Recruiter (Nova Scotia Labour Standards Division) and Commissioner of Oaths for New Brunswick.
Along with his extensive experience as a supervisor, these designations allow him to keenly assess the eligibility of immigration candidates and guide employers to source the most suitable international talent.
