Is the meeting confidential?
Any discussion you have with us is confidential. We protect your personal information and privacy.
What is the purpose of a consultation?
You should have an immigration professional look at your case if you do not know how to proceed with an application or you need to know if you qualify to apply in any of Canada’s immigration programs.
What happens during the consultation?
During the consultation, an immigration practitioner will analyze your case, assess your eligibility and find your best option. In order to receive accurate legal advice, you should provide clear answers and genuine information.
What if I need to ask additional questions after the consultation?
We recommend that you list down the questions you want to ask prior to your scheduled appointment. You will need to retain our services to get professional support throughout the whole process.
What is not covered in the consultation?
The immigration practitioner will not cover the step by step procedures to submit your application nor provide a list of requirements specific to your case. A full study of your situation will need to be done first to provide you the above-mentioned details, thus retaining our services is necessary.

Depending on the availability of both parties, we can either continue the meeting to make up for the time lost or reschedule the appointment without any additional fee on the first rescheduled appointment.
