Immigration Consultants and Lawyers working together.
Not sure if you want to use an immigration consultant or a lawyer? How about using a company that utilizes both so you never have to choose.
Ferreira-Wells Immigration Services is a Canadian Immigration firm that has been serving clients worldwide since 1995. Located in Toronto, Canada, this immigration consulting company assists with immigration processes such as Family Sponsorships, Express Entry, Federal Skilled Workers, and more. They also deal with visa appeals, investors and business migration.
Lawyers and Immigration Consultants:
The company is headed by Bruce Ferreira-Wells; RCIC Number – R410719 and David LeBlanc; RCIC Number – R413999, who are both Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCIC) – ICCRC, and members of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council. Both owners were members of the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants (CSIC) from the beginning in 2005.
If having immigration consultants that are recognized by the RCIC is not enough, they also affiliate themselves with an immigration lawyer, Max Chaudhary.
According to the website, the company is so committed to its clients that it can assess the clients’ qualifications in a brief phone assessment or low cost detailed consultation in the office, over the phone or even on Skype. Consultations are confidential and once you have done your assessment, you are not obligated to stay with the company and use their services. Their website does not state the cost of these consultations.
Gallery and Reviews:
There is a gallery section on the website dedicated to all the immigrants that the company has successfully helped immigrate to Canada. They claim to have helped “thousands of clients from all over the world” and have a section showing off positive testimonials from past clients.
Let’s not forget the number of testimonials found online about how great the company is and how they were assisted. One client goes as far as to say “The firm is a bit pricey but they are amazing.”
Ferreira-Wells provides information on various Canadian immigration programs, including Express Entry and family sponsorship, and explains how to attain Canadian citizenship. While the content on their website is informative, their blog only has two posts January and February 2015 and their Facebook page hasn’t been updated since 2009. That being said, their News section includes valuable advice to immigration candidates on Immigration Fraud Alerts.
Don’t be confused: Victim of Immigration Fraud
Ferreira-Wells is a legitimate immigration firm which provides reputable immigration services to Canada.
Unfortunately, Ferreira-Wells appears to have been a victim of fraud: their Immigration Fraud Alerts page informs readers that there is “an individual operating overseas who has stolen our identity and poses as our senior staff counsel Bruce Ferreira-Wells, claiming to be working out of the UK for a company called PRN Recruitment”. You can read the full notice below:
This fraudster is abusing Ferreira-Wells’ good name and claims to offer visa programs that do not exist. He claims to be working out of the UK for a company called PRN Recruitment and advertises on websites including Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba.com, promising work permits and other immigration visas, often for low skilled general labour that all sound too good to be true. The man is said to show clients a scan of his FAKE passport and business licence for PRN to build confidence.
Ferreira-Wells does warn people about this fraudster on the website, and people are asked to be careful. Ferreira-Wells states that they are NOT affiliated with this scamster in any way, so do not confuse the two.
A Reputable Immigration Company:
With this said, Ferreira-Wells Immigration Services appears to be a reputable immigration company that you can trust. Just be sure that you are approaching the real Ferreira-Wells Immigration Services, and not the fraudulent imitator as mentioned above.
