Years of Experience, But Who Is Eric Katz?
Katz Consulting is a Canadian immigration company that was started in 1995 and the Managing Director is Eric Katz. Katz Consulting provides immigration advice to individuals and corporate clients and they claim to have provided advice to other immigration consultants, lawyers and human resource professionals.
Eric Katz graduated from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts Degree and he then graduated from the University of London with an LL.B with Honours. Eric Katz is also a registered and recognised RCIC agent (R412975). His RCIC number is provided on the website and it is legitimate. What we do find a bit odd is the fact that there is no image of Eric Katz on the website.
The website for Katz Consulting is basic and it doesn’t flow well. The information on the website is limited and we often found ourselves looking for more information about the various Canadian visa options. In the slider that appears on each page of the website there are three options for you to choose from:
- Immigration Appeals
- Temporary Residence Visas
- Permanent Residence
When you click on Temporary Residence Visas and Permanent Residence you are redirected to the Inland Immigration Services which provides help to people that are currently living in Canada. But the Inland Services do not apply to people that are looking to apply for Permanent Residence or Temporary Residence visas from outside of Canada.
If you click on the Immigration Appeals link you are redirected to the Litigation Services. Here you are provided with three options too:
- Immigration Division
- Immigration Appeal Division
- Refugee Protection Division
Here you are given about two lines of information on each division. But Eric Katz is registered as an RCIC agent, not a lawyer and there are no lawyers listed on the website so there is no one that is able to represent you in court for these matters.
Katz Consulting has failed to provide any important online documentation on their website and this is very worrisome for us as it adds to the other issues that we have found with the website.
Poor Social Media Presence
There are no social media links from the website but we were able to find a Facebook and a LinkedIn account for Katz Consulting.
The Facebook account was created in 2013 and it has 294 likes. The account has barely any activity on it and the last post is from the 26th of June. For the month of June the posts were regular but it is very clear that Eric Katz has lost interest in posting to his Facebook account.
The LinkedIn account is just as basic as the Facebook account and it clearly states that Eric Katz is the only employee. With this being said we have to ask ourselves how is it then that he has provided advise to other professionals and not have anything to show for it?
We are reluctant to say that Katz Consulting is a reliable company to help you with your Canadian immigration process because a company that is 20 years old does not even have a single client testimonial.
The website needs a great deal of work and even though Eric Katz is a registered RCIC agent we are not comfortable poor identity of this immigration company.
