Citizenship and Immigration Canada warns stakeholders not to give immigration advice

Last year, Citizenship and Immigration Canada published a notice on its website, which provided valuable guidance regarding the giving of immigration advice. The notice focuses on: (1) travel agents, (2) employment agents and recruiters, (3) human resources professionals, (4) educational agents, (5) adoption agencies, and (6) live-in caregivers’ agents. It warns these entities not to engage in the unauthorized practice of law and indicates that merely advising someone on their immigration options can be considered unauthorized practice.
