Immigrants cautioned of being trapped by unauthorized representatives

Government cautions the aspiring immigrants to be aware of consultants who are not authorized or do not hold any accreditation from Government agency.

Looking for an Agent or a consultant
Every year thousands of immigrants apply for visa and there are more than countable programs under which one can apply. There are programs which have a capping in the numbers and hence one may get lost while making a selection. One may also feel a little lost while filling up the form, more so, because, the form can be rejected for even a smaller mistake. Therefore, most of the applicants seek for help from an agent or a consultant who could guide them correctly and lead them the way.

The support from Citizenship den immigration Canada

Looking at the number of fraud cases and the applicants becoming victim of unauthorized agents, CIC has set guidelines online so that no one is caught in a trap. An applicant can visit the website and assess his ability and can make a choice there from.

On the same website there is a support to find out any bona fide immigration agents.

Immigration Consultants of Canada regulatory Council (ICCRC) and federation of Law Societies are partnered with CIC and they generate awareness amongst the applicants regarding this issue.

The suggestions from CIC
CIC always suggest that an applicant should adjudge his credentials on his own and can get the credentials evaluated so that he knows for himself about his capability to apply under a given category or can take a decision to move to next. Some of he clues are mentioned below:

• If you have a low score in language proficiency test then you should not get carried away by any agent because almost every program in Canada expects you to have a good score.
• You have to report every single detail of your stay which could be a short vacation or even a long gap when you were away. A consultant cannot really help in covering up the gap so if you are told so you are mistaken.
There are many such small and big issues which could not be covered up by a consultant hence there is no point wasting time.

The initiatives taken by the Government
A video has been released which talks about the agents to be consulted so that the processing time of immigration files is not reduced due to the incorrect ones.

The efforts are being taken after understanding that almost 6,500 permanent residents are picked up for being investigated, and more than 1800 of them have seen their citizenship being revoked.

Becoming a permanent resident or a citizen is a dream of every and any immigrant, and for this many a times they bank upon a consultant so that they can save upon time and can avoid being rejected due to an error in the form. However, one must always choose one by referring him chic website and only after investigating the reality of the agent.
