How can I tell if my immigration or refugee legal representative is reliable?New

3. Don’t accept bad advice or false promises

Don't accept help from someone who:

  • tells you to lie or leave out information on your application
  • suggests that you use false documents
  • asks you to sign a blank or incomplete form that you're required to submit
  • doesn't offer to translate anything you sign
  • doesn't explain what they are doing, doesn't answer your questions, or doesn't provide you with copies of your documents and forms

And don't accept help if someone promises you a positive result on your application. No one can guarantee an outcome for your case. Be careful also if they say that they have special contacts within Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) or a Canadian embassy.
