A word about engaging the services of an Immigration Lawyer or Immigration Consultant in Canada
As with most purchases, it can be beneficial to obtain outside references. Ask someone you know about their experiences with a particular Immigration Lawyer or Certified Immigration Consultant.
The Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants (CSIC) was incorporated in October of 2003. To become certified, consultants must pass a rigorous application process, which requires evidence of good character, and tests knowledge and language skills.
Certified consultants are equipped with the latest information on immigration law, procedures and practices and go about their business according to a strict, enforceable Code of Conduct.
