Yes. Many applicants are unaware how strictly the immigration regulations are enforced and are unnecessarily refused or delayed due to technical errors on their application or by submitting the wrong supporting documentation. It is therefore recommended to consider seeking the professional guidance and independent advice of a RCIC Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant or Canadian lawyer/paralegal before lodging an application for residence. Consultants exist to help you find the best way through the immigration maze and are highly effective at doing so.
No. Although you may fundamentally qualify under Canada’s immigration policy, you are by no means guaranteed of success. Your application must be prepared in accordance with the prevailing immigration regulations and submitted together with the appropriate supporting documentation in order to be approved by the Canadian Department of Immigration. The ways in which to do this are not always clearly set out by the immigration authorities and result in many applicants presenting their cases incorrectly, inevitably leading to refusal. Therefore, consider seeking the professional assistance of an RCIC Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant or Canadian Lawyer / Paralegal for the entire application process.
