Interview with Sussex Investment Immigration Inc. Founder Shawn Fried



1. Your legal service that helps people gain permanent residence in Canada, the U.S. and other countries is one of the most efficient and fastest growing services. Please tell me a few words about yourself. How did you start your career as a lawyer, and your business?

I started off my career as a lawyer working under the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of Canada. After a number of years serving in the Canadian Government, ultimately retiring as Chief of Staff to Canada’s Minister of State (Finance), I chose to enter private practice. It is a natural progression to go from working to make a country, in my case Canada, the best it can be, to facilitating others who wish to live in and improve Canada through investment opportunities.  I realized there was demand from people around the world looking for trustworthy services to facilitate migration to North America.  My firm, Sussex Investment Immigration Inc., uses strategic partnerships with experienced professionals who are experts in each respective country’s immigration rules in order to facilitate migration to Canada, the U.S. and Antigua and Barbuda.

2. What are the most attractive proposals for people who want to start a new life abroad? Is it easy to become resident in the U.S. and Canada?

Everyone chooses to migrate for different reasons. As such, the proposals differ depending on the needs of the clients.  The U.S.’s EB5 program is ideal for those who wish to invest in the U.S. in order to acquire a green card to work and live in the U.S. for them and their family; however, U.S. citizens are taxed on international revenue irrespective of their residence.  While the program can lead to U.S. citizenship the process will take a number of years.  Canadian citizenship on the other hand provides access to the same quality of life, as well as similar education and job opportunities; however, once citizenship is acquired, Canadian taxation is based on residency and source of income.  The Canadian process also takes time.  Whereas, someone who seeks quick citizenship, visa free travel to a number of countries, and tax shelters should select Sussex Investment Immigration’s Antigua and Barbuda program.

Migration is made easier with experienced support from Sussex Investment Immigration.

3. Why do you propose residence in these countries specifically?

Many people see Canada and the United States of America as lands of opportunity – the land of milk and honey – the Promised Land. People who choose to migrate often look for a place where they can improve their current way of life.  While each family chooses to move for different reasons, the reason to move must outweigh the reasons to stay in their original country where people have familiarity.

North American residents have some of the highest quality of life in the world. People come to Canada or the U.S. in search of better employment opportunities. Other people move here to leave poverty behind, while others seek better medical treatments. For many people, moving to Canada and the U.S. provide more personal liberties such as freedom of expression, freedom of association, religious freedom, freedom of mobility.  Some people move to North America looking for political asylum and protection. Others want to live in democratic countries with clean environments.  Some choose these countries because of their world class education systems, while others choose the economic stability and strong job opportunities.

Whatever the reason people move, it represents a fresh start under some of the best political systems in the world that makes it much easier for immigrants to start a new life and make their dreams come true. After all, Canada and U.S. were formed and made by immigrants of many backgrounds.

4. Apart from the legalization of stay in Canada, you offer real estate in newly built apartments there. Can you amplify a little on this offer?

Some clients seek assistance in obtaining a place of residence or a conservative investment in residential real estate.  Specifically for the Toronto market, Sussex has teamed up with one of Canada’s leading developers, Tribute Communities, who has won builder of the year awards and best in customer satisfaction.  This relationship helps Sussex meet its clients’ real estate needs.

5. Which country can serve the best interests of big entrepreneurs applying for residence?

Each entrepreneur will have different needs. Do they wish to send their family to a safer, better environment, while they stay behind and continue to work?  Do they wish to uproot and never return? Do they have tax issues influencing their decision? Do they seek visa free travel quickly? Due to the specific needs of the entrepreneur, it is hard to attribute one country that will satisfy their interests.

6. Do you have any inspiring stories of how your customers got an opportunity to start a new life in the U.S. and Canada?

My client’s cases are confidential and unfortunately even anonymous descriptions of their cases can breach this confidentiality.

7. What can you wish to our readers? How to contact you if someone needs your services?

I would like to thank the readers for considering Sussex Investment Immigration Inc. for their immigration needs.  I wish them all the best in their difficult decision ahead of them. If Sussex can be of help in advising them of their decision please contact Sussex Investment Immigration at  More information about Sussex can be found at
