Where are you based?
I am based in Corner Brook, Western Newfoundland in Canada. However, I work with clients from all over Canada and the world.
What is your specialty?
I am a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant and I operate a full-service immigration consulting firm. That means I can assist foreign nationals in most immigration related issues and cases. I am also a Certified Canadian Career Strategist and a PhD student in Higher Education Administration and Policy Analysis. As a result, I tend to focus my practice around helping foreign nationals who are thinking about relocating to Canada to either pursue higher education or reach new career goals. In other words I focus on offering consulting services to foreign nationals that focus on: immigration, career, and education. In any case, the first step is to book a consultation.
Do you provide recordings of your webinars?
No. Unfortunately, at this time, all webinars are live interactive sessions and I do not record them and I do not share my slides with attendees, clients, or other interested parties.
Do i need to hire a regulated Canadian immigration consultant (RCIC) to immigrate to canada?
You are not required to hire a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC). It's a personal choice. There are several benefits to hiring an ICRC. You can book a free virtual meeting with me to ask questions to determine if you want to hire a consultant. There are over 60 different immigration programs in Canada. It can be difficult to navigate this without the help of a qualified professional.
Do i need a regulated canadian immigration consultant to help me apply for a student visa or a student permit?
The decision is for you to make. Often times, individuals assume that the risk of having a study permit application refused is very low. That is not exactly true and I would encourage you to look at actual data before you make a final decision.
How long will it take me to get my visa or travel DOCUMENTS?
It depends. It depends on many factors, but in most cases we are looking at processing times between 2 months and 18 months or more. If you are concerned about timelines and what to accelerate the process as much as possible, this is something you can talk about with your RCIC, if you decide to hire one.
How can you offer services at discounted prices?
- I am based in Western Newfoundland and work from home. This allows me to keep my own cost low.
- I do not hire staff and take care of everything myself. As a result, you get a highly personalized service at a great price.
- Because I operate a small business, I do not have to collect sales tax (HST) on behalf of the government, which, in many cases, results in approximately 15% in additional savings for my clients.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A Regulated Immigration CONSULTANT (RCIC) AND A LAWYER
- A Canadian Lawyer can represent you in court whereas a Canadian Immigration consultant can only represent you up to tribunal Level.
- A lawyer will have studied and often practiced other areas of the law. Lawyers are not necessarily specialized in immigration law.
- A RCIC is not a generalist, but instead a specialist of immigration laws, policies, and procedures.
- RCICs are usually less expensive than a Lawyer. RCICs and lawyers both abide by a strict code of ethics and are both regulated professions.
Can you guarantee that I will find a job in canada?
No. The reality is that the job market is competitive in Canada, like in many other countries. Moving ahead in your career will require a lot of work and dedication. There is never a guarantee and sometimes you will have to try several times before you are successful. What I can do if use my knowledge, experience, and skills to provide you with the right tools to move forward.
Is canada a good place to start a business?
Can I pay you to find me a job?
No. I do facilitate job placements by connecting individuals and employers when there is a match, as a courtesy. However, I am not a recruiter. I would be unethical and/or illegal for me to collect a fee for these services in many jurisdictions. Many jurisdictions require recruiters to be licensed. You should be cautious about working with firms that will offer you a job in exchange for money and that should not be your approach when trying to relocate to Canada.
is the canadian education system good?
Absolutely! Canada is home to some of the best universities in the world. In Addition, Canada is the most educated country in the world and its education system is well recognized to be among the best.
