Attorney David Cohen became interested in helping people with their Canadian immigration journeys because of his family's history. David remembers his grandfather speaking about his unsuccessful efforts to sponsor his sister from Poland leading up to the Second World War. Unfortunately, Canadian government officials did not facilitate the sponsorship and his grandfather's sister was never heard from again.
