If you’re looking for a positive difference in employment, educational purposes, or a business venture by moving to Canada, you won’t be the first! Immigrating to Canada comes with several benefits like access to a safe and clean environment, healthcare, education, good working conditions, and so on. However, due to the ever-changing immigration rules and regulations, you may find it challenging to comprehend the steps forward and may make costly mistakes along the way.

Similarly, as you may be unaware of the procedures and requirements of the immigration process, it’s easy to fall prey to a misunderstanding of the requirements. It is probably a very important application for you after all. You have already invested a lot in your dream and certainly, you want a successful outcome. You have probably never completed a permanent residency application before. As the expression goes: “Practice Makes Perfect!”. If you do something for the first time, how sure are you that you are doing it properly? How costly would a mistake be for you? 

Therefore, it’s best to consult an immigration professional, a member of the ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council) to assist and prepare your immigration application. These reliable experts will explain the complexities of the immigration process and ensure a thorough and complete application.

Daniel Brière, a reliable immigration consultant at Briere Immigration Services Ltd., has come across several applicants who have fallen for common misconceptions surrounding Canadian Immigration Law and wants to educate you to avoid the costly mistakes. To do this, he has debunked three of the most widely believed myths about the immigration process. Check our Google Reviews for feedback from past and current clients. 

Myth 1: Filing immigration forms online is easy
You may believe that you can easily use the forms on the website and complete these and the job is done. This is not the case. Or, in the case of Express Entry, you may think that setting up your profile is easy. While it may appear this way, I have seen many people include jobs that are irrelevant to the Comprehensive Scoring System. People have a misconception that because you make an online application, it is therefore an easy process to follow. There is nothing further from the truth. What is easy is to make a mistake! 

Myth 2: Legal support is mandatory to immigrate to Canada
It is possible to apply for an immigration application without the assistance of an immigration consultant or a lawyer as there is no requirement that you must. But if you choose to do it by yourself, you need to know how the immigration programs, the choices you have and make the right choice, it is not just about completing forms. There are about 100 immigration programs in Canada, which one is the right one for you?

Myth 3: Immigration forms are easy to understand
Most individuals tend to think that as long as immigration forms are available, they can answer the questions on the form and are good to go. However, there are many nuances that clients may not be aware of, and they may not catch a mistake until it is too late. That applies even to those with excellent French or English language skills. I have helped many clients with Masters or PhD after their applications were either refused or rejected. They had graduated either in Canada, Australia, UK, etc. Their English comprehension was excellent but still failed in their application. It is not as easy as it may seem.
