Can You Trust Canada Immigration Consultants to Apply for Canada Visa? 

To work & settle in Canada is a dream of millions. Canada is striving hard to fulfil the dreams of many aspirants with its liberal immigration policies and multiple immigration pathways. Applying for Canada Visa is simple and mostly online which is designed for aspirants to work on their own.

We would like to remind the readers of a similar experience with one of our clients in the recent past.

Alaina Ahmad got her study visa in Canada rejected during the first time that she applied on her own. On approaching CanApprove to apply for Canada Visa for the second time, she got it approved. She is now excited to start her journey at University Canada West, British Columbia.

There are many genuine Canada Immigration Consultants in the region to guide you throughout the process. A genuine Canada immigration consultant will come good on the following criteria:

  • Immigration license and certification from the College of Immigration, and Citizenship Consultants (CICC)
  • Number of years of experience in the industry;
  • Regional or global presence of the said consultant;

Final Verdict

The Government of Canada treats all applications for Canada Visa equally, whether they apply through a consultant or not.

Several aspirants apply for Canada Visa on their own and are subsequently approved each year. However, most may be limited to study visa or permanent residency applications through Express Entry. Application for Canada permanent residency through other economic-class immigration pathways like Provincial Nominee Programs are less explored when applying on their own.

An application for Canada Visa processed through a Canadian immigration consultant will analyze 100+ Canadian immigration programs and suggest suitable immigration programs based on the applicants’ work or academic profile.

Protect yourself from immigration fraud. Fake consultants, out there may scam you. Stay cautious of the following things:

  • If asked to pay to access the application form and guides.
  • If asked to provide personal information, financial information, or make a deposit even before you start your application process.
  • Makes too good to be true immigration deals, or “guarantees” entry into Canada, or “priority processing” of your application.

Getting professional help from experienced Canada immigration consultants like CanApprove will save time by avoiding rejections & eventually be more cost-effective.
