Why Retain Us
I am a highly experienced immigration professional, having worked in very high-volume environments while assisting some of the world’s largest companies. My unique immigration formation included being an immigration applicant, an immigration appellant in Federal Court against the Federal Government, a Canadian Permanent Resident, a Canadian Citizen, while my professional formation includes several years of experience with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), a global immigration law firm, and a corporate-oriented downtown-Toronto law firm. I understand that immigration does not operate in a vacuum, and my clients have learned that they can rely on me to get the job done.
Regulated & Insured
As a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (Licence # R509733), I am regulated by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). The ICCRC publishes the Code Of Ethics which sets the rules that RCICs must follow, and to which I strictly abide. Furthermore, all RCICs are required to possess valid errors & omissions insurance. My current insurance certificate can be accessed HERE. Being regulated also implies an ongoing requirement to complete 16 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours every year, to constantly build upon our immigration law knowledge. As a professional RCIC I strive to always go above and beyond the bare minimum requirements and ensure that I am aware and up to date with all new developments in Canadian immigration law.
The best applications are always prepared when all facts are provided in a clear and truthful manner. All information exchanged between a client and an RCIC is regulated by Article 8. Duty to maintain confidentiality of the ICCRC Code Of Ethics. As an RCIC I am committed to hold information in strict confidence at all times, with the confidentiality provision surviving the retainer. Furthermore, as an RCIC I am committed to the protection of confidential information and ensure that any digital information is stored on Canadian servers only.
Often, RCICs must act for both the corporation and the entity’s employees, thus making both parties my clients. In such situations, separate privacy agreements are prepared, in order to comply with Article 9. Conflict of interest, of the ICCRC Code Of Ethics. When such situations arise, the benefit of working with a single point of contact becomes obvious, in order to mitigate the conflicting interest, obtaining consent in writing from the parties, to allow the application to progress in a manner which minimizes impact on the employee-employer relationship
