Easy to make an appointment. Alex explained the PNP program to me thoroughly, which is in my case the only option immigrate to Canada. Even though I am going to another province he has helped me so much. He responds to email in a timely manner which I appreciate a lot! I highly recommend to look for a good consultant who help you with all immigration related inquiries because it is impossible for someone who comes from foreign country to understand a difficult immigration law in Canada. Thanks Alex and whole CICS team! Worth to visiting!

Excellent service. Fairly expensive but it was worth it for me. My half an hour conversation gave me a lot of perspective and better understanding of my options. Alex was friendly, humorous, empathetic and experienced. I felt like I was taken seriously, but the meeting didn't feel forced. A couple weeks after my consultation, I had a couple more questions after new circumstances came up and Alex helped me over email. The answers were fast and he made me aware of new options that had come up with new CIC regulations. It was only after it became a matter of making calls and doing extensive research that I found myself hitting the wall when it came to free help. So 100% recommended, if you have the pocket money for it. Which I was ok with spending, after I got a good consultation meeting shortly after I mailed them. I had contacted many other consultation firms in Vancouver and non of them even replied.

My options were limited on getting a work visa for Canada, so I went for a consultation and was delighted to be advised that I could apply for the PNP route. Alex was very knowledgeable and helped me throughout the complex process. I could not have done it on my own, the risks of making a mistake on the application is too large and I did not want to risk it. I highly recommend that you use CICS to assist you in filling out and submitting your application. The cost of the service was very reasonable and totally worth it given the very confusing and convoluted process, and all the different stages of applications I had to put in. My application has now been accepted, and in the exact timescale Alex had cited. I would like to thank him and CICS for their services and fantastic advice.

I was given very bad advice by the consultant. I was invited for nomination under the BC PNP. Alex, the consultant, told me to cancel my application because of the NOC code I supplied to IRCC. Alex also told me to cancel my application because I do not satisfy the education requirements according to my current job's NOC code. However, according to CIC's website, to choose a NOC code, "make sure the main duties listed match what you did at your job ". My job duties match the NOC code requirements. Alex asked if we can cancel the application on the spot. Thank goodness, I chose not to listen to Alex! Despite his advice, I proceeded with my application. I am so glad that I did. My application was approved within a day. I am so sad that I wasted $200 on the consultation.

Hi Asha. As a licensed consultant it is my job to look at each individual case and suggest a route that is best suited to that client. Although your case was accepted, which is wonderful, this has not always been the case with other applicants. As such, I felt it was important to inform you that a visa officer might not accept an NOC code when an applicant does not meet the specific education requirement. As I felt you had time and enough points to re-apply, my advice was intended to maximize your chance of success, instead of taking a risk and being refused a few months down the road. I am very happy that your application was approved and regret that you did not find value in my advice. We will send you a refund for the consultation. Regards, Alex.

I have met with Alex twice to ask about BC PNP and work permit extension after nomination. The appointments could be easily made as I got a response from CICS within a day. I usually prepared a list of questions before the meetings and Alex has been very professional, providing me with clear and concise answers. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs help so that you can be more confident with your application process!
