Thousands of individuals hire Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants(RCIC) and Lawyers each year to help them with their Canadian Immigration applications.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) doesn't require a representative, but hiring a Licensed Immigration Consultant or Lawyer could be an excellent option if you have been previously refused, committed or been convicted of a crime, or you have potential medical inadmissibility concerns or have a complex application because their expert guidance will take the pressure off and does the heavy lifting for you.
Beware of Immigration fraud, ask for the representative registration number with the ICCRC or provincial Law Societies and verify their status to avoid being scammed for thousands of dollars and have your application returned or refused.
Sign a retainer agreement
A retainer agreement is also known as the contract prepared by a Licensed Immigration Consultant or Lawyer stating that they provide immigration services for you in exchange for a fee.
Sign a Use of a Representative Form (IMM5476)
The Use of a Representative Form (IMM5476) is a government-issued form that confirms that the chosen Immigration Consultant or Lawyer is authorized to represent your immigration case. This form has several sections, including your first and last names, date of birth, etc. It also includes your representative's first and last name, their ICCRC or Law Societies Membership registration number, their complete address, etc. You and your representative must both sign and date this form.
