Canada being an important immigration, the focus has shifted to the role of the immigration consultancies and representatives, and also the role that they play towards facilitating the smooth progress of one’s immigration process. Not many people though really know that not any so-called representatives can be, and should be, hired for the purpose.
Talking of representations, the Citizenship and Immigration Canada clearly defines who can represent his application with the department. The department calls them authorized representatives, and among them are the Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCIC) who need to be members in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (http://www.iccrc-crcic.ca/home.cfm) .
Basically, an unauthorized immigration representative is acting as a documentation guide. And, if you wish to hire such a representative, then you might as well file directly. The reason being you are not getting any value addition service, nor does such a consultant have any right to follow-up on your behalf. Thus, while taking a final decision on the issue related to filing your Canada Immigration application, either hire or deal with a company which is associated with a Canada Government authorized representative.
Here is a summary of benefits that comes your way when you deal with a certified Canada Immigration Consultant, or deal with a company whose clients are serviced by a Canada Certified authorized Immigration representative:
A Canada Government certified Immigration consultant is your assurance of quality. The certified consultants are equipped with the latest information on immigration law, procedures and practices, and they go about their business according to a strict, enforceable Code of Conduct.
To become certified consultants, one must pass a rigorous application process, which requires evidence of good character, and tests knowledge and language skills. For added security and client protection, the certified consultants are fully insured for errors and omissions, and they can be subject to complaints that are all duly investigated by the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants (CSIC).
Of late, the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) have taken over as the regulator of immigration consultants in Canada. The Council’s mandate is to protect the consumers of immigration consulting services and also ensure the competent and professional conduct of its members.
Thus, you can formally complain to the ICCRC for any misdeed or professional misconduct of a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). No such course is available when you hire an unauthorized immigration representative or a plain vanilla documentation company or consultant to manage your Permanent Resident Visa application for Immigration to Canada. In addition, such an unauthorized representative would not have been formally educated in Canadian Immigration laws, or gets an opportunity to update knowledge on regular and ongoing basis. What you get is from an unauthorized immigration representative is the information available on the Internet -- something that you are already may be aware of!
The Government of Canada and the related Canada Immigration office will not deal with non-authorized representatives who are paid a consulting fee for their service. This key benefit and value addition come your way when you deal with an authorized immigration representative, or with a company that offers you the services of such an authorized representative. It is difficult for a busy executive or businessmen to find time to deal directly with immigration agencies.
Much more importantly, such a representative has adequate knowledge of immigration laws to deal effectively with immigration agencies, on your behalf. In addition, such a trained and authorized professional can represent you effectively in addressing Canada Immigration Office queries, refusal and rebuttals.
