41. Are candidates required to hire an immigration representative under Express Entry?
Candidates are not required to hire an immigration representative in order to participate in Express Entry. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC, formerly known as CIC) has determined, however, that authorized immigration representatives may assist candidates during all stages of the Express Entry immigration process. Life Ashore Immigration Consultancy professional team can help candidates immigrate to Canada by:
- Helping to prepare an accurate application going into the pool, lessening the risk of misrepresentation and the associated penalties;
- Providing job alerts related to the candidate's occupation and promoting the candidate to Canadian employers. This increases his or her chances of landing a skilled job and being invited to apply for permanent residency; and
- Reviewing all supporting documents, submitting an application within the time frame set by the government of Canada, and tracking it all the way while communicating with the government on the candidate's behalf. Potential candidates can fill out an online assessment form today and maximize their chances of success in immigrating to Canada under the Express Entry immigration selection system.
