Our Fees

One of the questions we get asked most often is “how much does an immigration consultant charge?” We know that this is a huge concern when looking to seek assistance with your Canadian immigration application. Canadian immigration lawyer fees and Canadian immigration consultant fees vary based on a variety of factors including the application type, any admissibility issues an applicant may have, the number of family members included in an application, and how many years of experience the Canadian immigration consultant has.

How much does a Canadian immigration consultation cost?

For most people looking at immigrating to Canada, a consultation is an excellent starting point. It allows you to discuss your immigration options with an expert and find out your options and ask any questions that you may have. Canada Abroad offers a variety of consultations depending on how long you think you would need to discuss your questions with one of our Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCIC).

If you decide to retain Canada Abroad to assist you with your Canadian immigration application within 30 days of your initial consultation, the consultation fee that you have already paid will be discounted from the cost of your future professional service fees (excluding reviews and further consultations). If you are located outside Canada, any professional fees will be tax-free. If you are located inside Canada, 13% HST will be applied to the cost of your professional fees.

15 minute consultation$80 – $115

How much does full representation cost?

To allow you to plan for your immigration journey, we have listed our professional fees below. These fees are based on average cases, meaning there are no admissibility issues, custody issues, or other issues that may require additional hours of work. The professional fees listed are professional fees only and do not include the applicable government fees or other third-party costs such as language tests, educational credential assessments, police clearances, medical examinations, translations, or any other costs associated with an application. If you would like a quotation for your specific application, you can contact us for a quote based on your specific circumstances. Our professional fees are not all due at once, they can be paid in instalments for your convenience.

Also, if you have had a consultation with us in the past 30 days, the consultation fee that you have already paid will be discounted from the cost of your future professional service fees (excluding reviews and further consultations). The below list of fees is based on a single applicant. Additional family members (spouse and dependent children) will incur additional charges. Senior consultants with 5+ years of experience may charge a higher rate for certain services. Fees can also vary based on other factors such as previous visa refusals, custody issues, inadmissibility issues, and other complex issues.
