Applicants for Canadian immigration or Canadian citizenship are not required to pay a consultant or representative to assist them in their application, and applicants who have representatives or consultants do not receive preferential treatment. The Canadian federal government department of Citizenship and Immigration provides immigration and citizenship information online as well as detailed application kits, and tries to keep the process as simple as possible.
However, many applicants for Canadian immigration and citizenship find the application process complicated and difficult, and prefer to use a representative to assist them with their applications.
As per Citizenship and Immigration Canada only some people can charge a fee or receive any other type of payment to represent or advise you on a Canadian immigration proceeding or application. These are:
• lawyers and paralegals who are members in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society,
• notaries who are members in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Québec and
• immigration consultants who are members in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council.
These people are called “authorized” representatives.
CIC will not deal with representatives who charge for their services and are not members of one of the above groups.
