The real deal

ICCRC consultants are the genuine article

I

mmigration Consultants like me handle issues that change people’s lives. Helping people qualify to come to Canada, and settle here, 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.

Click or touch here. There are only about 4,600 licensed Canadian Immigration Consultants, as of the end of 2019. I am one of them.

Faster Service

Connecting with UK folks

U.K. and Canada
New Canadians from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have an easy time integrating into Canadian life.
U

pper Canada Immigration Consultants is doing an outreach to folks in parts of the United Kingdom this spring. Perhaps you saw our information on Facebook, in our e-newsletter, or on this web site, and you are wondering what to do next. If you are from the UK, please read this page first. It has lots of handy tips and sound advice for people seriously considering emigrating to Canada.

Call us via WhatsApp or by phone. The sound of a human voice is always best. For your initial consultation, we can arrange a telephone (or Skype or WhatsApp) appointment for a detailed discussion. Because of the time zone difference, mid-evening UK time is still in the midst of the working day in Ontario. If you are in Canada, or plan to come for a visit, we can 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 contact you. We will need to know about your academic or trade background and your qualifications and experience. 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 short time.

  • 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;
  • After your initial consultation, we follow up with an Engagement Letter if your case would benefit from our services.
  • Once we have agreed to work together, a Retainer Agreement will detail  the scope of  our services, the terms of your billing and a tentative timeline. From then onward, you are our client, and  we are working on your behalf.

Making Payment

Seminar week Guyana update

  It is happening!   It is encouraging to see how many people have booked an appointment to discuss their eligibility to come to Canada. We are in Guyana now. We have reached our full capacity for appointment times to discuss eligibility to come to Canada with serious prospects. We are adding requests to our wait list. Sales of tickets to attend one of the two Information Seminars ceased on Sunday evening.

We have now booked all our 30-minute personal meeting appointments, and have been substituting people who had booked meetings, but had not paid their invoice. If you have requested a meeting, and been invoiced, please pay your invoice to avoid losing your appointment. See the most recent e-mail from Upper Canada Immigration Consultants to those on our list.

 

Cash Payments

I received a message from the Regency Suites hotel in Guyana. Staff there  informed us of an issue we had not previously encountered. A few people had called the hotel to ask if they could pay the hotel for the seminar admission, either in advance or on the day of the seminar.

Let’s start from basics:

  • Upper Canada Immigration really does exist;
  • We are really coming to Guyana;
  • We are actually staying at the Regency Suites, and hosting some participants at two seminar sessions, and in-person meetings;
  • The Seminars are on March 6th. If you do not have a ticket, please show up 60 minutes in advance to purchase your ticket. We know who, by name, is coming, and how many attendees to expect.

It is neither fair nor realistic to ask a hotel to assume the responsibility for payments by you to us. And we cannot in conscience ask the hotel to handle and account for cash that has nothing to do with their hotel business. The response to the ‘pay-the-hotel’ question is a gentle, but firm no.

The confidence and ability to intelligently use credit is essential in coming to Canada, either for a visit, or to settle in Canada. So is the ability and willingness to make and keep a commitment in advance. Do not be reluctant to move away from a cash economy. A move to a first-world nation means using a credit card wisely is essential.

Register with your debit or credit card

Some of the people who attend the seminars and/or meet with us will be both eligible to come to Canada, and interested in beginning or continuing the process.

Our on-line registration provider, Eventbrite, is safe and secure. It is reputable and stable. We don’t see your credit card, or your card number. We don’t want to. You have a record of payment, and we have an accurate attendee list. Eventbrite is used worldwide by many businesses and clubs. If you wish, you too can get an Eventbrite account (free), and use it to organize events of your own in Guyana. See the software we use at Upper Canada Immigration.

If you are eligible to come to Canada, and work with us, you will be sharing some of your life’s foundation documents: passport; life history; education; birth and marriage records and so on. You’ll be making some serious decisions after speaking with our firm to make the journey to Canada happen.

If you have a credit or debit card, you can click the button above with confidence. There are no other fees or charges to you. Other attendees who have arranged to meet with us in Guyana have already purchased their tickets.

  • If you don’t have a credit card, use your bank or debit card. Ask someone in your family, or a friend you trust to help you;
  • Our discussions with the Trade Commissioner at the Canadian High Commission in Georgetown confirmed that some Caribbean-issued credit cards have difficulty with some North American payments systems;
  • If you have difficulty using a credit card, try a debit card. Our attendees have had no difficulty when they have used a debit card;
  • We respectfully suggest that you consider opening a PayPal account. You can use it perfectly to pay us. PayPal is worldwide in scope, safe, secure and used by millions of sellers and buyers alike.

Sooner or later in life, you are going to need a bank card and/or credit card. Maybe this is a good time to get one. Or to use the one you have. We have the hotel room for just two seminar sessions. When the tickets are gone, they are gone.  Those who meet with us, or attend the seminar, and feel they are eligible to come to Canada may wish to work with Upper Canada Immigration Consultants to apply.
