Is ImmiGroup the one for you?
This Toronto-based immigration firm offers a range of immigration solutions to those looking to immigrate to and from Canada. Immigroup was founded in 2004 by Ruman Delinov and George Laczko. Together, the two established their firm with a mission “to provide friendly, accessible, understandable legal service of the highest quality for matters concerning immigration and travel.”
Immigroup has two registered ICCRC agents namely, Delinov himself (#409719) and another individual named Anthony Doherty (#510956). On the detailed ‘About us’ page on Immigroup’s website, it is stated that Delinov personally handles all applications and acts as the legal representative of Immigroup with the CIC.
The website also offers a helpful immigration news/blog section as well as a ‘free tools’ tab which acts as convenient and helpful guide to immigration for those who are unfamiliar with the processes. Under this tab, we noted that they have an Immigroup forum and different directories to help the immigrant along with the process. Their ‘help’ section offers more clarity on the different immigration programs.
Immigroup’s main program is called the IEC – International Experience Canada which allows the immigrant the opportunity to work, travel and gain experience in Canada (This is also offered to Canadians who are interested in emigrating from Canada to another country). Basically, this program is similar to the Express Entry visa which requires clients to fill out a profile and join a pool of candidates to be selected for one of three categories: working holiday, international co-op and young professionals. On this page, Immigroup provides a step-by-step guide to how their immigration program works and what will be required of the candidate.
What is IEC?
According to the Immigroup website, the IEC program is an agreement between “The Canadian Department of Trade and Foreign Affairs […] which encourages and enables cultural exchange between [certain] countries. You must be aged 18-35. If you qualify you can travel to a country of your choice for 12-24 months for work, internships and apprenticeships.” There are over 30 participating countries.
