Default Citizenship-Use of Representative

I was stuck with my application so I went to seek help from a
representative. He is a member of the Canadian Society of Immigration
Consultants (CSIC) so I believe in his professional conduct. I had
completed a form and authorized him to represent me on anything
regarding my application.

When I updated with him on my application he told me that he had faxed
to CIC regarding my application but, to be honest, I have doubts that
he had done so becasue he could not provide with me the exact date
that he had faxed them. He gave me two different dates although he
said he had only faxed them once. Now, I am worried that he took my
money and just sit there and did nothing with my application.

I am not thinking of firing him, but in order to play safe, what are
the procedures to fire him? How can I let CIC know?

What are the powers of such a representative?

Thanks in advance

Lenny

Lenny:

Sending a fax to CIC usually does not solve a problem, particulalry when it
involves matters which are within established time guidelines. For example
if your file was sent to the CIC in Scarborough for review it could take 12
to 36 months before you will see any action. Nothing will happen if it is
just a time delay. If it is a procedural problem or a legal issue the best
thing to do is obtain a copy of your file and see what the problem is. It is
not the CSIC members fault but the system which is screwed up.

Since you do not divulge the nature of your problem it is difficult to give
you a full answer.

You may want to apply to the authority to get a copy of your case file
based on the "Freedom of Information act". Faxing to CIC will not
yield any response even though they'll probably act on it after a
couple of months.

Peter: FOI Act is in USA not Canada. In Canada we have the Privacy Act and
Access to Information.

Thanks Jim.

Two more questions.

If I have authorized an immigration consultant to represent me on all
matters dealing with my application, do my mailing address get changed
to my consultant's address?

Does e-client reflect this change?
