Faster Service

Responding effectively to you

U

pper Canada Immigration Consultants has begun our busy period of client meetings, and visits to destinations at which people meet with us. Potential clients see our information on Facebook, in our e-newsletter, and on this web site, and call us via WhatsApp or by phone. Much of our consultants’ time during the working day is spent working on our clients’ case files. We can arrange to call you back, and book an appointment for your call, or to meet with you. Here is how you can help us work with you:

Please complete these steps before calling us

1. Tell us who you are, and where you live
Please complete this on-line form. This also gets you our periodic e-newsletter. Nobody else ever sees your contact information.
2. Tell us about your situation
Please complete this on-line form. This web form describes your situation, and enables our consultant to gain insight into what you may need us to do for you.
3. Need to send a message, or add an explanation?
Our web site is a treasure trove of free information for you. It also offers you a way to write us a short message. For example, you could advise us that you had just filled out the two forms above. Click or touch here to send a message.

What happens after that?

Our staff will assemble your information, and e-mail you back. If you have raised a question in a message to us, we can respond briefly, and offer you an introductory consultation. This does not cost you anything, and lasts a few minutes.

  • When or if it looks as if your inquiry has substance and merit, your consultant will lay out a path for you. At this point, you become a paying client of Upper Canada Immigration Consultants;
  • Your initial consultation costs $50. We follow this up with an Engagement Letter if your case would benefit from our services. This initial consultation fee is credited back to you if you retain our firm to work on your behalf;
  • Once we have agreed to work together, a Retainer Agreement will spell out what Upper Canada Immigration Consultants will do for you, and what your payment schedule will be. From then onward, you are our client, and  we are working on your behalf.

Invitation to Apply

Your ITA starts a crucial clock ticking

Invitation to apply
The coveted Invitation to Apply (ITA) expires within 90 days. If you get an ITA, you need to get moving on it right away.
T

he coveted Invitation to Apply, or ITA, is a sought-after opportunity to come to Canada. All applicants want one. Fewer than one in four of all profiles in the Express Entry pool receive an ITA. Once you have an ITA, you have a use-it-or-lose-it  opportunity.

Immigration consultants have two big advantages over the do-it-yourself approach: A good consultant does this work frequently, and is fast and accurate, with a system for tracking what you need to make good your ITA on time and with precision; and not being you, the consultant isn’t as emotional or under the stress about the ITA as you are. That makes things go more quickly.

If you have received an Invitation to Apply, you need to take the next three months of your life very seriously. This is one of life’s use-it-or-lose-it opportunities. Click here for some vital information on turning your precious ITA into your opportunity to settle in Canada.

The real deal

ICCRC consultants are the genuine article

I

mmigration Consultants like me handle issues that change people’s lives. This is a service that is complex, difficult, takes continuous ongoing training on my part, and takes time. That makes it, by definition, expensive. My clients may do this process once in their lives. For most of them, our fees represent an amount of money they don’t hand out daily. We do this work all the time, do it well, and do it correctly.

Sometimes, people ask if dealing with a licensed Canadian Immigration Consultant brings with it any form of success ‘guarantee.’ I answer that occasional question on this web site. Click or touch here. There are only about 4,600 licensed Canadian Immigration Consultants. At Upper Canada Immigration Consultants, we stick to the law, treat our clients fairly, and deliver value for money to serious people.

Happy New Year 2019

Working hours during the Holidays

Santa Claus is coming to town.
Santa Claus begins his journey in Canada’s north. Children through the decades have addressed their letters to: Santa Claus; North Pole; Canada H0H 0H0. Santa normally replies to all letters. Seriously!

Merry Christmas, and a Happy and Healthy 2019 to all our clients, past, present and future, and to your families.
