Canadian Immigration Services Review of WWICS Global
To begin our Canadian Immigration Services Review of WWICS, we start with their About Us page. The company was apparently started in 1993, offering resettlement solutions to help people move/visit:
- New Zealand; and the
Their headquarters are said to be found in Mohali, India. The company itself has over 17 offices from India to the UAE and Qatar. The senior directors of the WWICS Global Resettlement Solutions are Devinder and Parvinder Sandhu, both of whom seem to be accredited Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs).
The company appears to have several other group partners for their operations which are:
- Global Strategic Business Consultancy;
- West End Diagnostic Imaging;
- Continental Group of Institutes;
- CBIS (Canadian Business and Investment Services Inc);
- WWWICS Estates; and
- Global Placement Services
WWICS Global Resettlement Solutions’ Website and Services
The next part of our Canadian Immigration Services Review of WWICS takes a look at the website design, which is easy enough to navigate and seems to have some useful information for certain Canadian visas.
Their Recent Blog has current and relevant information about immigration news, although the articles are generally very short, and do not have as much information as they could. There is another link below called News & Media that has not been updated since late December 2016.
The Latest Immigration News link on their Canadian immigration also has not been updated, since they refer to the CIC, (Canadian Immigration and Citizenship) not the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Canadian Citizenship), which is now in charge of immigration for Canada.
The website itself may not be highly secure, as the usual HTTPS code with its green lock does not appear at the top of the website address. Caution may be advised if you wish to make payments on their site.
There is another link to a site that claims to help with IELTF courses from the British Council, where users are warned that their sensitive information may not be 100% safe.
Our Canadian Immigration Services Review of WWICS also took a look at the services offered by WWICS Global who supply post landing services like:
- Applying for Employment Readiness Courses (ERC) which are said to help prepare employees for a new environment. Although the usual description for this course refers to people who have social challenges like Autism and Asperger’s syndrome.
- Licensing with professionals and registration;
- bank accounts; and
- credit accounts
- Applying for:
- drivers licence;
- government cards;
- education for children; and
- insurance etc
Besides claiming to offer post arrival services, WWICS Global Resettlement Solutions also say they provide help with applications for:
- Business immigration Visas;
- Family Visas;
- Skilled Worker Visas;
- Student Visas;
- Visitor Visas;
- Work Permits; and
- Citizenship applications
WWCIS Global Resettlement Solutions Social Media and Online Reviews
Next, our Canadian Immigration Services Review of WWICS examined the company’s customer testimonials on their homepage, which are all positive reviews. Although the reviews themselves are not dated and do not provide pictures of the clients or any other additional information.
WWICS’s has social media ranging from Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Although their YouTube channel no longer seems to exist.
The company appear to have three related sites on Facebook
The WWICS Group Facebook page has around 114,000 followers which do suggest that they have a good social media presence. The Facebook page also posts regular, but short articles about immigration, which sometimes link back to their homepage.
The other WWICS Canada Inc Facebook page has fewer followers, with around 16,000, although their response rate seems to be fast.
The last Facebook page WWICS Qatar has 18,800 followers and posts regularly as well. Though most of their posts have to do with people receiving permanent residency in Canada.
None of the Facebook sites has a review option on their pages, which may not help their online credibility.
WWICS Twitter account has around 9,000 followers and seems to have a fairly active account with an estimated 12,000 tweets. Their information appears to be correct and posted regularly.
On google review, the WWICS Qatar branch tends to have a mixed review rating, with ratings of 1 star to 5. Many of the complaints seem to have issues with either fees, and/or unprofessional business conduct.
There are positive reviews for WWICS Qatar, although many do not say why they enjoyed their services.
WWICS Global Resettlement Solutions Conclusion
Overall it does help that the company does appear to have accredited RCICs, like Mr. Devinder Sandhu and Parvinder Sandhu. Their content when it is updated seems to be linked to recent immigration news, which can help the user. Although there are some news links that appear to have been abandoned or forgotten.
Maybe because of the size of the WWICS, not all the services offered to clients may be of the same level, like the mixed reviews of WWICS Qatar. It would appear that WWICS may be what it claims to be, a service and consulting company that assists in immigration and settlement. Although one should always be careful when hiring the immigration services of any company.
