One can certainly handle his or her immigration case without representation. However, given the rapid changes in the Canadian immigration landscape, a small error can cause unforeseen delays to your application or worse. Moreover, you cannot rely on the government to help you or give you consistent advice. Free advice is everywhere, but you are ultimately responsible for your own case. As a result, incorrect advice can be extremely emotionally, monetarily, and legally costly. For instance, an applicant can be barred entry into Canada for five years due to statements made in the application.

Immigration can be a confusing and tiring process and a professional can save you time, frustration, and money by optimizing your chances on the first attempt.
