A new report in The Star says if you want to immigrate to Canada, immigration lawyers have a significantly higher success rate versus hiring an immigration consultant or filling out the application themselves. “Many immigration consultants have only completed online courses at a community college. The education and training is just not comparable.” The data from The Star was obtained through an access to information request, and shows:
- 10.4% of immigration applications prepared by an immigration lawyer were rejected
- 18.9% of all applications were rejected
- 19.3% of those who complete their own immigration application were refused
- 18% of immigration applications prepared by an immigration consultant were rejected
Calgary immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah understands why people often try to complete their immigration application themselves but advises that mistakes can be costly and stressful:
I have 20 years experience as an immigration lawyer, and that’s the only type of law I practice. As an immigrant to Canada myself, immigration isn’t just a job to me – its personal.
