Immigration Consulting

Every year, hundreds of thousands of tourists, students, workers, and immigrants come to Canada to either tour some of the world class attractions or pursue their dreams. Canada has and continues to welcome an annual average of more than 250,000 immigrants since 2006.  There is a Canadian advantage that is also part of this immigration story.

On June 30, 2011, Bill C-35, was passed into Canadian law (Now Section 91 of Immigration and Refugee Protection Act). Bill C-35 addresses who is authorized to assist individuals in the preparation of their immigration applications to Canada.  Section 91 of IRPA states that:

91. (1) Subject to this section, no person shall knowingly, directly or indirectly, represent or advise a person for consideration — or offer to do so — in connection with a proceeding or application under this Act
(2) A person does not contravene subsection (1) if they are
(a) a lawyer who is a member in good standing of a law society of a province or a notary who is a member in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Québec;
(b) any other member in good standing of a law society of a province or the Chambre des notaires du Québec, including a paralegal; or
(c) a member in good standing of a body designated under subsection (5).
(5) The Minister may, by regulation, designate a body whose members in good standing may represent or advise a person for consideration — or offer to do so — in connection with a proceeding or application under this Act.

(9) Every person who contravenes subsection (1) commits an offence and is liable

(a) on conviction on indictment, to a fine of not more than $100,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than two years, or to both; or

(b) on summary conviction, to a fine of not more than $20,000 or to imprisonment for a term of not more than six months, or to both.
