Why should I hire a Canadian Immigration Lawyer for my immigration needs?
1. Lawyers can appeal refused applications;
2. Only Lawyers can represent their clients at immigration hearings at the Federal Court of Canada;
3. Lawyers are always there to help, regardless of the outcome; and
4. Lawyers have up to date information regarding the ever changing Immigration laws.
Large numbers of consultants operate under the radar, sometimes going to great lengths to dupe the system — or clients — and making loads of money.
Many are operating outside these rules. Some of them tout “special connections” with government officials and promise prospective clients guaranteed visas or work permits when they know they can’t deliver.

Who needs to give their fingerprints and photo (biometrics)

You only need to give your biometrics once every 10 years. You don’t need to give your biometrics again until the 10-year period expires.
If you gave biometrics in the past as part of an application for a visitor visa, work or study permit and they’re still valid, you don’t need to give them again.
Find out if your biometrics are still valid and when they expire by using the Check Status Tool.
