Why Choose Us

Why Choose Us

Choosing Crightney Immigration Inc. an Immigration Consultant Firm or Other Immigration Lawyer Firms?

When submitting an immigration application, you can attempt to do it yourself or hire a licensed and trained professional to assist you.

Although the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) formally Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website allows you to moderately apply for temporary or permanent residence, the reality is fairly different.

For example, did you know that Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada website only provides the most basic list of required supporting evidence? More often than not, the list provided by IRCC is insufficient to convey the elements of evidence needed to support an application. In addition, the application forms must be completed in an explicit way. With the slightest of errors an application can be delayed for months, or even rejected.

Often times, significant documents such as affidavits and supplementary documents, are unquestionably required for a successful application. However, you will only discover this when your application is rejected.

A submission letter is another important document to provide to IRCC when submitting your application. A well drafted submission letter can significantly assist in making an application compelling, as a submission letter assists the visa officer in knowing the issues at hand and the resolution to those issues in a particular application. Do you know how to draft a compelling submission letter?

You may also encounter frustration contacting the IRCC Call Centre for assistance. Many individuals have experienced extensive waiting periods on the phone, and received answers from a Call Centre employee who does not properly provide answers to issues. At Crightney Immigration Inc. we have access to contact information for managers in each visa office around the world. This information is not available to the public in general; it is only shared with the Canadian Bar Association and Immigration Consultants licensed by the Canadian regulatory body (ICCRC).

So the questions you may have at this point is, 1) Who are these licensed professionals that can assist me with my immigration application and 2) Why hire Crightney Immigration Inc?

To assist you with your immigration file, you may choose to use a representative such as an Immigration Consultant who is in good standing with the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC), or lawyers and paralegals who are members in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society, or notaries who are members in good standing of the Chambre des notaires du Québec.

You should choose Crightney Immigration Inc. We have the legal authority under the ICCRC to act as an immigration representative, and hold a government issued license to do so.

For example, in order to become an Immigration Lawyer, you have to complete law school, and then undertake 10 months of apprenticeship training, which is called articling. In addition, an individual must complete at least 2 years of undergraduate university. Lawyers must also pass their Bar Examinations, which allows them to practice law.

Immigration Consultants also must meet various requirements in order to represent clients. Consultants have to be Canadian citizens or Permanent Residents and a graduate from an accredited immigration practitioner’s program. They have to complete a mandatory pre-admission course exam for membership into the ICCRC too. Finally, Immigration Consultants have to pass a language proficiency test, show proof of good character and must have no criminal record.

In fact both Immigration Lawyers and Immigration Consultants have to have liability insurance, which helps to protect clients and representatives if there are claims of liability. Nonetheless, whether you are considering hiring an immigration lawyer or an immigration consultant, it is important that you evaluate the professional you are hiring.
