On the website there is a seal for the ICCRC but there are no RCIC numbers provided on the website. On Jane Katkova-Brown’s bio, it says that she advocates for her clients and that she has represented refugees at refugee hearings. What we want to know is, is Jane Katkova-Brown an immigration lawyer or an RCIC agent? We were unable to find her in a lawyer search or on the ICCRC’s website. We did find a Evguenia Katkova-Brown on the ICCRC website (RCIC # R412959). Jane is fluent in English and Russian and has a 90% success rate.
Praskovia (Panya) Jain is an Independent Education Consultant and an associate of the IECA. She is also registered with the ICCRC as an immigration consultant but there was no RCIC number provided within her bio. We searched the ICCRC’s website and found her RCIC number, R511000. Praskovia provides guidance and assistance to clients before they take certain tests like the IELTS, she is fluent in English and Russian.

The website for Jane Katkova & Associates has the seal for the ICCRC but there are no RCIC numbers listed for any of the firm’s consultants. Another thing that puzzled us was whether this company is an immigration law firm or an immigration agency. We also feel that the content writer for this website has used every possible adjectives to describe the firm’s services. Boutique immigration consultancy firm, wow!
There are testimonials that are provided for the immigration company and they are all very positive. One thing that we found quite peculiar is that previous clients kept speaking about Jenny Katkova-Brown.
The information that is provided on the various Canadian visas is very thorough and easy to get through. There is also a free online eligibility assessment that you can take for certain visa applications like:
- Business Immigration
