Beware of non-recognized consultants

Montréal, October 4, 2016 - The Ministère de l’Immigration, de la Francisation et de l’Intégration, in collaboration with the federal government, has updated the alleged illegal activities of three non-recognized immigration consultants involving nearly 600 cases.

These individuals acted as consultants without being recognized by the Ministère, therefore failing to comply with the provisions under the Regulation respecting immigration consultants, in violation of the Act respecting immigration to Québec.

The Ministère has taken action against the guilty consultants and is calling on candidates to exercise caution when choosing a consultant.

Note that all candidates are obligated to inform the Ministère if they are being represented by a paid individual. Hiding this information from the Ministère is a serious offence that could adversely affect your immigration procedure. Be vigilant when you hire someone to represent you, and respect your obligations.

To notify the Ministère of immigration fraud, please call 514-864-9191. For any information on the provisions regarding immigration to Québec and how to retain the services of a mandatary, visit our website.

Consult the Registre québécois des consultants en immigration reconnus (Québec directory of immigration consultants recognized  by the Ministère).
