Marco Mendicino, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), in a recent statement, has urged those who wish to migrate to Canada to choose their immigration representatives wisely. The statement from the Minister was issued in the context of the fraud prevention month being observed by Canada in March. The Minister said the immigration aspirants must make sure that the representative they choose is authorized to do business with the government.
The Minister’s statement also reiterated Canada’s commitment to prevent immigration scams and immigration aspirants falling prey to fraud consultants. “The vast majority of these applicants are genuine and wish to come to Canada in good faith. Unfortunately, there are some dishonest people who prey on these individuals, and the Government of Canada is committed to preventing applicants from becoming victims of fraud,” said Minister Mendicino in the statement.
He said nobody can guarantee the immigration aspirants that their applications would be given special treatment or they would be approved. Canadian immigration authorities assess all applications fairly and on the same merit, according to the Minister.
Licensed Canada immigration consultant
An immigration applicant can know if an immigration consultant or lawyer is licensed or not by checking the following parameters:
- The immigration consultant has to be a member of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council
- The lawyer/notary has to be a member of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society, or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.
- Paralegals (Ontario only) should have membership in the Law Society of Upper Canada.
If an immigration consultant meets these parameters, the immigration aspirants may conclude that they are licensed and authorized.
