Canada Border Services Agency Crackdown Results In Dozens Of Charges Against Immigration Consultants
Immigration consultants facing charges
According to this National Post article, the founder of Canadian Immigration Solutions Manitoba (later named CISI Canadian Immigration Strategies), Brad Jacobson, is facing more than 20 counts of immigration fraud and is accused of creating fake businesses so foreign workers could come to Canada. According to the Canada Border Services Agency, there are an estimated 300 victims.
New immigration consultant regulatory body revoked membership
Jacobson was also charged in 2010 for immigration fraud and the new government regulatory council for immigration consultants, The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council, took away his membership after those initial charges.
Despite the creation of this new government regulatory body and the government making it illegal for anyone to offer immigration services while not being a member of that regulatory body, shady immigration consultants are still out there and are still operating.

Great law firm with great staff. My lawyer Rania did a great job for my Canadian work permit and my daughters study permit. You are great in your work. And my Para Legal officer Alicea, you are just amazing. They did not rest until my job was promptly and properly done. Always there to answer my calls, reply my emails promptly. She tried her best and the results were amazing. I recommend visa place if you need the best immigration job. Many thanks to Rania and Alicea.
Great firm on top of their game. Worked with us til the end to ensure my parents visa was approved and guided us along the way in a professional manor. Natalie is awesome. Majority of our communications were via email, but the responses were immediate. I would greatly recommend this firm. Thank you for all your hard work and help. My family and I do really appreciate it.
I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
