Using the services of an immigration intermediary - Refugees
The Undertaking Application submitted to the Ministère de l’Immigration et des Communautés culturelles are all processed according to the same criteria. No priority or special processing is given to the file of a person who used the services of an immigration representative. Consequently, it is not necessary to use the paid services of an individual to prepare your application. However, if you decide to use the paid services of an individual, note that since February 2, 2011, the Ministère only deals with duly authorized individuals, namely:
NOTE: The consultant retained must be recognized and registered with the Registre, whether your application is submitted before or after February 2, 2011.
Processing of applications received before February 2, 2011
No application will be returned to the applicant or his or her consultant.
If you have submitted an application through an authorized individual, it will be processed according to standard procedure.
If you have submitted an application through an unauthorized individual, you will be informed that your application must be processed directly with you or with a new authorized individual mandated by you by transmitting a power of attorney (in French - PDF, 39 Kb) signed by you.
If you were called to an interview before February 2, 2011, your application will be processed as usual, according to the standard procedure.
