What Services Do Immigration Consultants Provide?

Many people who want to immigrate to Canada use the services of an immigration consultant or an immigration lawyer. Both types of immigration representation are different, but the services do overlap. Toronto immigration consultant

Before you hire an immigration consultant, you should always ask if they are a member of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council. This means the immigration consultant is regulated and has a specific set of guidelines to follow, and better protects you as a consumer or client.

Services offered by Immigration Consultants:

Some of the services offered by immigration consultants include:

Offering assessments of their clients’ chances of being approved for a visa.
(No immigration representative should ever tell you that you are guaranteed to be approved for a visa for any reason, especially for an additional fee or if they say they have an “in” with the immigration department.)

Preparing clients for interviews with different types of visa officers.

Helping prepare a clients’ immigration applications and paperwork, or proofreading them to ensure they are accurate and error-free.

Assisting clients in all facets of immigration to Canada, including family sponsorship, appeals, refugee claims, temporary residency, student immigration and working in Canada.

An immigration lawyer does all of the above and more, including acting as legal representation or offering legal advice.

No matter which type of immigration representation you choose, make sure that they are honest and are willing to provide you with referrals so you know they are really working for you, and will give you the best chance of success in the immigration process.

    Hi Michael,

    I’d like to clarify something that none of the consultants were able to do.
    I am a graduate Physiotherapist from Brazil, I do know after the whole process of become a registered PT in Canada I will be able to find a job as PT.
    What I am trying to figure out is the possibility of finding a sponsor to apply for my work Visa under the job as a Physiotherapist Assistant (PTA) because the PT Board has already confirmed that for the PTA position there is no need of license to practice.
    I intend to find a sponsor to hire me as a PTA so I will be able to travel/move to Canada. When already in the country, settled, I am willing to pursue the process to become a fully qualified PT.

    I really appreciate your attention.

    Kind regards,

    Patricia
