To find an immigration consultant in Canada who is authorized and qualified, you should follow these steps:

  1. Check the online public register of the CICC. You can search by name, location, language, or area of practice to find a regulated Canadian immigration consultant (RCIC) or a regulated international student immigration advisor (RISIA) who suits your needs. You can also see their contact information, status, and disciplinary history on the register.

  2. Verify their credentials and reputation. You can ask them for their CICC membership number and check it against the public register. You can also look for reviews, testimonials, or referrals from their previous clients or other sources. You should avoid anyone who offers unrealistic guarantees, asks for cash payments, or pressures you to sign a contract without reading it carefully.

  3. Compare their fees and services. You can contact several immigration consultants and ask them for a written quote that outlines their fees and services. You should compare their prices, quality, and scope of work before making a decision. You should also ask them about their refund policy and cancellation terms in case you change your mind.

  4. Sign a retainer agreement. Once you choose an immigration consultant, you should sign a retainer agreement that clearly states the terms and conditions of your relationship. The agreement should include details such as:

    • The services they will provide and the fees they will charge

    • The documents and information you will provide and the deadlines you will meet

    • The roles and responsibilities of both parties

    • The methods of communication and payment

    • The dispute resolution process and complaint procedure

You should read the agreement carefully and ask questions if anything is unclear. You should also keep a copy of the agreement for your records.
