Hiring an Immigration Representative in Ottawa

Immigrating to Canada whether you intend to do so permanently or temporarily can be a complicated process. It is not a requirement that you use an immigration representative when you apply to immigrate to Canada, and your application will not be treated any differently by Citizenship and Immigration Canada. However, the use of an immigration representative can make a huge difference in the success of your application. This is because you will be having a professional guide you through the process, ensure you are eligible for the immigration stream you’ve chosen and ensure your application package makes an effective case for why you are eligible for the permit or visa you are applying for. However, not all immigration representatives are the same. 

Immigration Lawyers Or Immigration Consultants?

As someone who is navigating the immigration system, you have two choices for paid help. These are immigration lawyers and immigration consultants.

An immigration lawyer is someone who has completed law school, specializes in immigration law and is regulated by the very respectable law societies in their region. In addition, they are held to a level of professionalism and are watched over to ensure they provide quality service.

An immigration consultant is a different profession all together, and they offer some – but not all – of the services an immigration lawyer can. They too, are regulated, but there have been too many stories in the news as of late that prove their regulatory body isn’t effective at dealing with problematic consultants or even those who act fraudulently. As such, it is very difficult for the client to choose a “good” immigration consultant over a “bad” immigration consultant, and a “bad” immigration lawyer has much, much more to lose than a bad immigration consultant as they have gone through years of schooling and professional development to get to where they are today.
