Our relationship begins with a consultation by email or in-person. I give you a list of questions to answer and then I respond with a detailed letter outlining your options. The consultation fee is deductible from my retainer fee if you retain me to complete your immigration journey.
Please be aware that I have no affiliation whatsoever with a company calling itself Burlington Associates. That company has used my name and regulatory body identification number to defraud clients. Do not deal with this company. It is a scam. I am not a recruiter and do not find jobs for clients. Be wary of anyone who guarantees you a job in Canada. There is also someone in India using my name and RCIC identification number. My only office is in North Bay, Ontario, Canada. This person is a criminal and you should not deal with him. Hold on, I'm not done. There is another scammer in Iran who claims to be my business partner. I have no business partners.
Antoine Gorriz: "I obtained my permanent resident card with the help of Mr. Curry. The process was very clear and flawless. I was in France the entire time and it was still easy to communicate, and he always replied to my emails shortly after. I would recommend his services to anyone whose goal is to come to Canada."
Julie K.: "We acquired our permits with the assistance of Mr. Curry. He is a tremendous help. He patiently communicated with IRCC until we got our permits. We highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of immigration assistance."
George Sapatura: "We hired Mr. Curry to take care of our permanent residence application. Our correspondence with him was always by email as we were overseas at that time, but he always responded promptly. We got out PR approved in just 5.5 months under the RNIP stream. He knows what he is doing as he is a Canadian registered immigration consultant and I will recommend his services to anyone with immigration matters! Thank you Mr. Curry!"
Alina Yang: "A very nice and professional consultant. He replied to my emails in a timely manner and he completed my documents effectively. I will definitely recommend him."
