What is a representative? A representative is someone who has provided advice, consultation, or guidance to you at any stage of the immigration application process, or in an immigration proceeding.
If someone represented or advised you to help you submit your application, then that person is your representative. When you appoint a representative: you also authorize CIC and CBSA to share information from your case file with this person; your application will not be given special attention nor can you expect faster processing or a more favourable outcome; the representative is authorized to represent you only on immigration matters related to the application you submit with this form; you can appoint only one representative for each application you submit; you are not obliged to hire a representative.
We treat everyone equally, whether they use the service of a representative or not. Important information. You must notify us if your representatives contact information changes or if you cancel the appointment of a representative.
Types of representatives Family, friends, and non-profit groups often help applicants who feel the need for support and advice on immigration matters. You can appoint a representative who does not charge fees or receive any other compensation for providing immigration advice or services to represent you before CIC or the CBSA. There are two types of representatives. Compensated representatives: Compensated representatives charge a fee or receive some other form of consideration in exchange for the advice and representation that they provide.
If you want us to conduct business with a compensated representative then they must be authorized by CIC. It is important to know that anyone who represents or advises you for payment or offers to do so in connection with immigration proceedings or applications is breaking the law unless they are an authorized representative or they have a specific agreement or arrangement with the Government of Canada that allows them to represent or advise you. This applies to advice or consultation which happens before or after an immigration application is made or a proceeding begins.
Authorized representatives are: immigration consultants who are members in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council ICCRC ; lawyers and paralegals who are members in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society and students-at-law under their supervision; notaries who are members in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Qubec and students-at-law under their supervision.
