DON’T BE THE VICTIM OF A SCAM.

If the offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

  • Immigration representatives do not have special connections with Canadian government officials and cannot guarantee you a visa.
  • Only authorized officers at Canadian embassies, high commissions and consulates can decide whether or not to issue a visa.
  • Don’t be tempted into using false documents as this will result in the refusal of your application.
  • Processing fees are the same at all Canadian visa offices around the world.
  • Fees in local currency are based on official exchange rates and correspond with the amount in Canadian dollars.


Only some people can charge a fee or receive any other type of payment to represent or advise you on a Canadian immigration or citizenship proceeding or application.

These are:

  • lawyers and paralegals who are members in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society,
  • notaries who are members in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Québec and
  • citizenship or immigration consultants who are members in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council.

These people are called “authorized” representatives.
Ask the license before signing a Retainer Agreement.

Sincerely yours,
Galina Vladimiorva, RCIC R514110
