Immigration Representative

You may choose to use a representative to act on your behalf or to assist you with finding a qualifying job offer, completing your RNIP application for recommendation or completing your Permanent Resident application. Be aware that there are two types of representatives: paid and unpaid. Only some people can charge you a fee or receive any other type of payment. These people are called “authorized” representatives. They 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


We won’t deal with representatives who charge a fee but are not authorized. If you use an unauthorized representative, in Canada or abroad, we may return your application or refuse it. 


However, you must understand that using a representative does not change how your application will be reviewed or whether it will be approved or rejected. All applications are handled the same regardless of whether a representative is used or not.


Immigration representatives cannot guarantee:

  • Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot approval

  • Permanent Residency Approval

  • Bringing your extended family members to Canada, expedite review of your application

  • A faster review of your application to the Rural and Northern Immigration Pilot or for Permanent Residency
