Frequently Asked Questions


Everything we claim is absolutely verifiable. You can visit to verify any immigration consultant and even know if they are active, or have had their practice restricted.

No. It is not compulsory to hire a Canadian Immigration representative. However, you might find the Canada PR process complicated and overwhelming. An immigration representative will not only simplify the process but would also ensure that your application satisfies all the current requirements of the selected immigration program.

An ICCRC/CICC licensed representative will NEVER guarantee you a Canada PR. Canada PR is entirely under the jurisdiction of IRCC and is entirely the decision of the Canadian Government.

Although Canada PR offers the same social, financial and legal perks enjoyed by Canadian Citizens, they are not the same. Permanent Residents in Canada have certain limits. For instance, they cannot vote or hold any position in the Government. To get more information about the differences please visit the official website.

As of my last update in September 2021, the fees for Canada Permanent Residency (PR) application can vary based on the immigration program you are applying through and the number of family members included in your application. Keep in mind that immigration fees can change over time, so it’s important to verify the most up-to-date information from the official Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website.

Here are some common fees associated with Canada PR applications:

1. Processing Fee: This fee applies to the processing of your PR application. The amount can vary depending on the specific program you are applying through, such as the Federal Skilled Worker Program, Federal Skilled Trades Program, or Canadian Experience Class.

2. Right of Permanent Residence Fee (RPRF): If your PR application is approved, you will need to pay the RPRF before becoming a permanent resident. This fee helps support immigration and settlement services. The fee amount varies based on your age and family composition.

3. Biometrics Fee: Biometrics (fingerprints and photo) are required as part of the application process. There is a separate fee for this, which is applicable for most applicants.

4. Language Testing: If required, you might need to take language proficiency tests like IELTS or CELPIP. These tests have their own associated fees.

5. Educational Credential Assessment (ECA): If your education is from outside Canada, you might need to get your credentials assessed. There is a fee for this assessment.

6. Medical Exam and Police Clearance: Depending on your situation, you might need to undergo medical examinations and obtain police clearance certificates, which could incur additional costs.

7. Translation and Notarization: If your documents are not in English or French, you might need to get them translated and notarized, which can lead to additional expenses.

It’s important to calculate the total fees based on your specific situation, the immigration program you’re applying through, and the number of family members included in your application. Be sure to refer to the official IRCC website for accurate and up-to-date fee information before submitting your application.

No immigration program is better than the other. What is better depends on what suits you best. While Express Entry is fast and advantageous for skilled immigrants, it might seem out of reach for others.

Canada is a country that is terrorism-free, pollution free and recession free. It offers premium quality life at a reasonable cost of living. Free health coverage, free schooling and freedom to work anywhere across the country are a few popular reasons that make Canada No.1 choice for immigration.

No. An Invitation to Apply DOES NOT guarantee you Canada PR visa. Although half the battle is won, receiving an ITA only implies that the IRCC is inviting you to apply for PR through your selected immigration program. An ITA is followed by the submission of complete compulsory paperwork and a PR application to the IRCC.

A PR card is valid for 5 years after which you will be required to apply for renewal. The renewed PR card will require processing fee of $50. To know more about PR card renewal please visit to the official website.

As of my last update in September 2021, the “easiest” Canadian province for immigration can vary based on individual qualifications and circumstances. The Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) of different provinces offer various pathways, but eligibility criteria change, and what was true then might not be now. For current and accurate information, check the official Government of Canada website or consult with immigration professionals.

The most reliable source of information is the Candian Government website. The second best and dependable source is one that is given by licensed and certified RCICS.

IELTS is one of the accepted tests for language proficiency in English. Having a high language score can exponentially increase your chances to get a high Canada PR score and receive an ITA in the draws of the immigration program chosen by you. Higher the IELTS score, better your chances for receiving an ITA. Very few authorized immigration consultants offer absolutely free and personalized IELTS training. Visit official website for more information.

A high CRS score almost guarantees you an ITA through the Express Entry draw. A CRS score can be increased by scoring better in IELTS or other language proficiency tests, increasing your work experience, or academic degrees. There are many ways to get a high CRS score. A licensed RCIC (Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant) will suggest you the most practical and effective.
