Frequently Asked Questions

An immigration consultant is a legal professional authorized by the government of Canada to represent and assist clients with various Canadian immigration and citizenship matters. Certified immigration consultants receive specialized education and training, study immigration law in-depth, and must pass a vigorous comprehensive exam, complete numerous backgrounds & police checks, and continuously attend professional development and practice management courses.

Clients often believe that immigration documents are seamless and can be done without assistance. While this may appear to be true, there are many instances where applicants err in their documents, not only causing their application to be refused, but also resulting in a ban from entering Canada. Did you also know that there are ministerial instructions, operational manuals, public policies, and guides that we use to complete applications?

Finding the best immigration consultant in Canada is not easy. However, we reassure you that by retaining us for your representation, you are bringing years of experience, depth of knowledge and professionalism to your correspondences with immigration officials.

Our free consultation (15min) is primarily to assess your eligibility for the type of visa you would like to apply for. We gather general information about you, and let you know whether you are a candidate for the relevant immigration program.

Our paid consultation (1hr) allows for a comprehensive assessment of your situation. Our Canadian immigration and visa expert discusses in detail your eligibility for the immigration program, the application process, and cost of your application. Our 1hr consultation is also followed by an email that summarizes our discussion and up to two correspondence to clarify any questions you may have.

For your initial 1hr consultation, we expect you to fill out a pre-assessment form prior to our meeting. This form will allow us to learn more about you and the reason for the consultation. You will then be directed to book the appointment with our Canadian consultant, sign the initial consultation agreement, and pay the consultation fee. We will then send you an invitation link to our virtual audio/video meeting as requested.

There are usually three common steps when retaining an immigration consultant. Step 1: Pre-assessment and consultation where we offer you a personalized immigration plan. Step 2: Completing a retainer agreement and submitting all supporting documents. Step 3: Reviewing, signing, and submitting your application. Our goal is to keep your immigration journey a smooth and seamless one.
