Canada is a highly sought after country for immigration. Since the introduction of the Express Entry immigration system, thousands of people have moved to Canada. Most of the successful candidates were assisted by Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCIC) who know the Canadian immigration system inside and out. A policy doesn’t change without their knowledge. And if one door closes, they can help you find the key to open another. In this article, we disclose three important reasons why you should consider hiring the services of an RCIC to help you through your Canadian immigration journey, from start to finish.
What is an RCIC?
Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) are immigration and visa strategists who have completed rigorous training and licensing programs to acquire in-depth knowledge of the entire Canadian immigration and visa system. It’s important to note that only RCICs who is authorized by the Canadian government is legally allowed to assist you with your Canadian application. Otherwise, your application will be rejected.
To verify the credentials of an RCIC, check their registration with the ICCRC yourself in just three simple steps as explained below.
1. Discover your route to Canada with an RCIC
It is your dream to move to Canada. But have you given any thought to how you want to move to Canada? It’s not as simple as filling in a form and submitting it. Canada has more than 80 different immigration programs and visas that you can choose from and apply for. But before you can select an immigration program, you need to know which ones you are eligible for. For this reason, a comprehensive online evaluation is a first and important step in your Canadian immigration process.
A comprehensive online evaluation tells RCICs more about you, your background and specific needs, for example, if you have a family that you’d like to bring with you to Canada. After an RCIC has reviewed and processed your details, you’ll receive a personalized immigration roadmap that outlines the best immigration program/s that you can apply for to move to Canada. On top of that, you’ll receive your Comprehensive Ranking System (CRS) score. The CRS is a points-based system that the Canadian federal government uses to assess your eligibility to immigrate to Canada based on criteria such as:
- Language ability
- Work experience
- Other factors
2. Improve your CRS score with the help of an RCIC
It is extremely important to have a high CRS score to increase your chances of immigration success. The federal government uses the Express Entry system to manage applicant profiles by sending regular Invitations to Apply (ITAs) to applicants whose CRS points fall within or above a certain threshold. In other words, the more competitive your online profile, the more likely it is that you will receive an ITA.
An RCIC can pinpoint exactly what criteria can be improved on to increase your score and how you can go about doing it. Whether it is to verify certain documents or gain more work experience, you’ll always know exactly where you stand and be one step ahead with an immigration expert on your side.
3. Submit a perfect immigration application with an RCIC
An RCIC applies for your expertly selected immigration program on your behalf and personally notifies you if you can pack your bags for Canada. There are many benefits to having an immigration professional handle your application:
1) Prevent misinformation or a small error that can cause your application to be rejected by the Canadian government. That means you’ll have to start your application from scratch and pay the relevant submission fees once more. 2) Preparing the documentation that needs to be included with your application requires time, effort and attention to detail. An RCIC takes this task off your hands so that you can focus on other details like preparing for your arrival in Canada. 3) Last-minute policy changes and program deadlines are particulars that you don’t have to stress about because it will all be taken care of by your appointed RCIC.
