If you want to immigrate to Canada and hire a consultant to get Canadian immigration services, beware. To be represented by an authorized and licensed ICCRC agent, ICCRC has posted guidelines to identify reprimanded and fraud Immigration Consultants. You can check the past decisions taken by ICCRC on their website.
This link has all the past disciplinary hearings, names of the reprimanded agents, and consulting firms associated with the disciplinary action. You can learn about the consulting firms and companies you should beware of. We want you to know about and protect yourself from frauds, illegitimate visa counselors, and choose the right Canadian immigration consultant.
They have reprimanded 38 ICCRC members worldwide. The members were penalized because of unethical and fraudulent practices of the firm they were associated with. Besides, out of all 38 penalized members, 1 member was reprimanded because of malpractice by a company in India. You should always check and tell others to check the same. People who want to migrate to Canada with a PR visa can be a victim of such companies.
To stay safe, you should check whether the company has changed its name because they were implicated in a disciplinary hearing conducted by ICCRC. One thing you need to be made aware of is that any of the directors of an existing firm has ever been associated with a disciplinary action taken by ICCRC. You can find this out by reading the summary on the ICCRC website and cross-checking the names of the directors from MCA. Since the consultants were the reason for getting an ICCRC member penalized, you would want to know all about them. For the company you are enrolling with, check if they ever had to maintain a disclaimer on their website to whitewash their image.
If you want to recognize immigration frauds, the Government of Canada has created a webpage with information and links to reporting agencies on how to report immigration fraud or abuse. The ICCRC is the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants, it has the authority to file an injunction against a person who acts as an unlicensed immigration consultant. Stay informed with Canadian immigration news and best practices shared by the Federal government of Canada on the ICCRC website.
We are sharing the best way to see if the ICCRC Agent is authentic or not!
To conclude hiring a PR consulting firm, we want you to be as sure as you can be. We are telling you an insight no one has ever shared before. Every RCIC agent is given a code when they qualify as an accredited member of ICCRC. Now, in the process, the people who are new in the system have a newer code. Similarly, the people who are more experienced and older in the field of immigration have older codes. You can also cross-check the RCIC codes, names, or surnames on this portal which were a part of disciplinary action in the past.
Warning Issued by the Canadian Government!
Shannon Ker, Communications Advisor for Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada said, As more Indian nationals choose to come to visit, study and work in Canada, more people are falling victim to unethical consultant practices. Many are spending their hard-earned dollars and, in some cases, their life savings on consultant services where they don't even end up with a visa in the end. Source: The Star
Taking it further, the issue was also highlighted by The Star, This issue in India of having incompetent consultants or immigration lawyers has been ongoing for many years. India is one of Canada's major sources of immigrants for workers and students. The Indian immigrants that come to Canada help attribute to the country's economy. Unfortunately, the misrepresentation, the lack of knowledge, or the unethical intentions of visa consultants is a problem that needed to be addressed.
We, at Nationwide Immigration Services, told the Canadian immigration aspirants to look after a lot of things. You must always see the company's registration, reputation, success ratio, knowledge, and excellence of the counselor, IELTS training reviews, and importantly, meet their post-landing team. If you think any of the services are less important, you shouldn't! We are telling you that it is important to ensure whether these services are only depicted in documents or will be provided to a client in reality.
The harsh reality of this world is that it is filled with a lot of scammers and frauds. Immigration is one of the areas where it is happening with a lot of aspirants. We only ask the Canadian immigration aspirants to seek and hire a legitimate, promising immigration consultant who works for the clients, not just promise and give excuses.

Understandably, you need to hire a Canadian immigration lawyer from outside of Canada. The process of filing for immigration can be done by the aspirant. But there are cases and times, they need someone well versed with the process. They look for support from an authentic Canada PR consultant who is represented by a genuine and experienced ICCRC Agent.
Look at the Experience: The PR immigration consulting firm you are looking to hire should have years of experience with a decent success rate. You should look at the team, knowledge, past clients details, and cases. Understand how they manage complex cases. Find out how long the ICCRC Agent has been in business and how long the professionals have been practicing. Ask how did they work with rejections and do they have good representation for appeals.
Read Online Reviews: This is one of the best practices that you need to adopt before taking any service. You can easily find reviews about the Canadian immigration firms near you. The reviews are posted by users or clients the company has dealt with in the past. You can get valuable insight from other people's experiences. Although, not every negative review is not solid because many bad reviews could be fake or created by a competitor. The best way to understand the same is to look at them deeply. Check if the user has mentioned a name, communication, or company reply. Ask a representative about the same and see the response to assess the originality of the review.
Check the ICCRC Website: The authentic immigration professionals or consultants registered with the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) are governed by a code of ethics and professional standards. This is a crucial step to identify the association of the visa consulting firm with ICCRC Lawyers and Agents. This also helps you see the experience of the same consultant and whether he or she has even been reprimanded or not.
