The Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants aren’t happy about The Tories tough new direction on immigration. Everything is now coming out of the woodwork to just how lucrative this business is.

 

It will push a lot of us out of business. You don’t get new referrals if your old cases don’t go through” – Alli Amlani, Toronto Immigration Consultant.

 

Some applicants have been stuck in the backlog since 2004. Are clients informed that Canada has 1.4 million people out of work or that it’s stuck in the worst recession since the dirty thirties? The most important thing is those gullible new referrals…bringing in new streams of lucrative revenue for the consultants. Questions? Comments?
