About using a representative

Applicants are not required to hire a representative. All applications are treated equally, regardless of whether or not they were prepared with the assistance of an authorized representative. Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program reserves the right to contact the employer or prospective nominee directly regarding the application, if the program considers this necessary.

If you do choose to use a representative, you must use an authorized representative. Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program follows Canadian government regulations requiring all paid immigration representatives to meet the definition of “authorized representative”. This means that Ontario Immigrant Nominee Program will only conduct business with paid immigration representatives who are the following:

  • Immigration consultants who are members in good standing, with the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). (For program rules during the transition period, please visit the Program Updates page)
  • Lawyers who are licensees in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society and students-at-law under their supervision, and
  • Quebec notaries.
