Make sure you’re getting the right information from a qualified professional, who is up-to-date and educated on available pathways to immigration in Canada, and is an active member in good standing with the ICCRC. You can search for your professional by name, location, license number, etc.
Make sure you look into you who hire and do your research.
Note: It is an offense punishable by law to provide Canadian immigration services for a fee or other consideration if not regulated by ICCRC, a Canadian law society, or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.
ICCRC maintains a registry of Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) and Regulated International Student Immigration Advisors (RISIAs) to identify the professionals it regulates. Find more information about any discipline issues, current or past, that may concern an RCIC you are considering using.
