• Get support – BUILD A NETWORK OF CONTACTS and learn about services for immigrants. 

• Make it complete –SUBMIT ALL REQUIRED INFORMATION, provide all supporting documents and answer all questions clearly – sign and date your forms. 

• PROVIDE ACCURATE INFORMATION – giving false information is against the law and has serious consequences. 

• REVIEW carefully – understand everything in your application before you submit it, have someone translate if needed, and keep a copy. Inaccurate or incomplete information can mean delays or even refusal of your application. FIND THE RIGHT HELP. Hiring a representative is not required, but laws for immigrating to Canada are complex and errors can be serious. 

• Use a REGULATED immigration consultant. They have education, training, and ethical standards. Your communications with them will be kept confidential.

• CHECK CREDENTIALS – your representative should be authorized by the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC) to provide immigration services.  

• ASK– about training and experience in immigration law, who will work on your application, how you will communicate, and what they will charge. 

• BE READY WITH A LIST OF QUESTIONS about the process for your representative.
