Carmela Valles – CVIC Immigration Consulting


CVIC Immigration Consulting is owned by Carmela Valles who is also a registered and recognised RCIC agent (R420719). Carmela’s company is situated in Peterborough, Ontario and on the website Carmela claims that her immigration agency is the first privately owned immigration consulting business in the city.

Carmela is the former Executive Director of the New Canadians Centre of Peterborough, a position that she held for nine years prior to opening up CVIC. Carmela has experience in the immigration field and she has worked in her community to help newcomers.

The Website

The website for CVIC is very basic and looks a bit bare as there is a lack of information. One thing that Carmela has failed to do is provide important online documentation like a terms and conditions, privacy policy and a refund policy. These are extremely important documents.

If you look at the Services page you will see that there is a list of Canadian visa application options but there is no information about each of these applications. We were disappointed with this as people have come to your website for help and there is no information about the different visa applications for them.

The Come To Canada page has a list of the Canadian visa applications with a short description on each. There is also a News page on the website but all that CVIC has done is link the CIC’s news article to her website. This seems lazy but at least she has news about immigration in Canada and it is up-to-date.

CVIC also offers you free a free consultation and you are able to submit your resume online. We are not sure whether CVIC helps you with finding a job in Canada as it is not specified on the website. CVIC states under their Benefits that there are no hidden costs and that the hours are flexible.


Poor Social Media

There are no social media links from the website but we were able to find Carmela Valles‘s personal Twitter account and a Facebook page for Carmela Valles Immigration Consulting.

The Twitter account only has a few followers and the last Tweet is from October 2014. However the tweets are relevant to Canada and Canadian immigration. The Facebook account only has one follower and the posts are relevant to Canadian immigration and Canada but the last post is also from October 2014. The account was created in 2014.

Our Conclusion

Carmela Valles is a registered and recognised RCIC agent and although her website is lacking information, she has experience in the immigration field. We do feel that there are a few changes that could be made to the website and the social media presence of the company.
