I reached out to CanadaWiz when my brother’s PR application hit a brick wall. CanadaWiz advised on the best course of action, which ultimately led to him obtaining his Canadian PR. Thanks CanadaWiz!
I am happy to say that I am now a Canadian PR thanks to CanadaWiz. I landed in Toronto in October 2019.
How Can CanadaWiz Help Me, Since You’re Not a Law Firm nor a Member of the ICCRC?
Section 91(1) of the IRPA excludes anyone other than the following to provide counsel or otherwise represent a client during an application or proceeding with Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC):
- Only lawyers who are members in good standing with law society of a province, or
- Immigration Consultants (ICCRC) members in good standing designated by the Minister of IRCC.
Thus, as law abiding Canadian Citizen’s, we are not able to represent you during an IRCC application. As per IRCC guidelines, we are able to provide you with the below services and other related services, and wer are not required to be a law firm nor a member of ICCRC to provide the services that we do. An extract is below:
“Others who may help you apply:
Some people may help you with the application process. These people do not need to act as your representative or access your personal information.
For example, someone may help you:
- use IRCC website to find information.
- navigate IRCC e-services.
- view and use electronic forms or to download/upload documents.
- get your documents translated.
- make travel plans.
- choose and register in courses to study in Canada.
For this kind of help, you do not need to send us a representative form or release form.
People offering such help and services might be:
- friends or family members.
- travel agents.

CanadaWiz falls under the travel/educational agent category, thus we can assist you with all the above and other related services.
If you can afford an ICCRC or immigration lawyer, that’s perfect. You may find an ICCRC here, but make sure you have your $$ ready 🙂 CanadaWiz service is primarily for those who want a cheaper alternative to the aforementioned options.

We do NOT guarantee approval on IRCC applications. However, if you follow our advice, you will have a higher chance of an approval than if you get it done yourself, as we have first-hand experience on the Canada immigration process.
* According to Canadian law, it is a criminal offence for any consultant to state that an IRCC application is guaranteed.
