Canada Warns Foreigners of “Immigration Agents” in India

By Ella Bergquist July 10, 2019 (Updated August 2, 2019) 4 min. read

The capital of Canada, Ottawa, recently launched a campaign in India to inform and warn prospective immigrants of using immigration consultants in India. Ottawa is located in Ontario but close to Montreal and the US border. The majority of Canadian laws and regulations are made in Ottawa which makes this warning very serious.

The immigration department’s spokesperson, Shannon Ker, stated that this information campaign is the department’s first paid media campaign. “As more Indian nationals choose to come visit, study and work in Canada, more people are falling victim to unethical consultant practices. Many are spending their hard-earned dollars and, in some cases, their life savings on consultant services where they don’t even end up with a visa in the end,” Ker told the Star in an email.

“Applicants, their families in Canada and stakeholders have shared with us how this issue is undermining confidence in the immigration system and keeping families apart. Many of these consultants are encouraging applicants to make repeat paper applications, containing the same information, which makes the whole network less efficient.”

This issue in India of having incompetent consultants or immigration lawyers has been ongoing for many years. India is one of Canada’s major source of immigrants for workers and students. The Indian immigrants that come to Canada help attribute to the country’s economy so having so many refusals due to misrepresentation is a problem that needed to be addressed. Source – The Star

I’m satisfied with the expertise and professionalism with which my case was managed and handled. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the firm for its support. Although it has been a long process time due to Covid, Nadia has always been one of the first people to guide me step by step through the path during this stressful and unprecedented time. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel.

I reached out to VisaPlace kind of on a whim, knowing that I needed to apply for permanent residency in order to stay with my spouse and our two cats. They were immediately and incredibly responsive, and almost instantly made me feel that I was dealing with professionals who cared about my case.

I reached out to them August last year, and today got the confirmation that my permanent residency has been approved. The people I worked with in VisaPlace stuck with me through the whole process, answering any questions and assuaging any fears that I had about the process, my application, or what I needed to do. Even when my anxiety made me snappy (I apologized immediately!) they handled my case and me with professionalism and compassion. Immigration is a stressful, scary process. I wanted professionals who knew the ins-and-outs so that I had the best chance of being able to come to Canada.

And now, I get to stay in Canada with my partner of nearly 10 years, and I couldn’t be happier. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone who wants immigration help! A big thank you, especially, to Alejandra and Nadia for handling my case. I’m so lucky to have had your help!

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.
