Do I Need An Immigration Lawyer?

CIC does not provide preferential service to applicants with representatives. A lawyer or immigration consultant can help by ensuring you complete the forms correctly. However, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) application forms are designed to be straight-forward to complete. For applications made within Canada, you can contact the CIC call centreto ask questions about the application process. It's a free call, but the number is often very busy. For tips on how to use it efficiently, go to Contact Citizenship and Immigration Canada

The CIC web site provides further information on different types of representation(through a lawyer, immigration consultant, etc.) NOTE: If you decide to engage a lawyer or immigration consultant, choose wisely. There are significant differences in services provided and knowledge levels. The Faculty Recruitment and Support program can provide referrals to reliable lawyers and consultants.

If you have concerns about your admissibility to Canada, it is advisable to consult an immigration lawyer before you make a visa application. To find out more about what can make a person inadmissable, refer to this web site. If you would like a referral to a lawyer, please contact the Faculty Recruitment and SupportProgram.
