Canada2036 Reviews Canada Immigration Express

The website looks and feels well put together, with (almost) the right balance between marketing and actual useful content. At times, they go “off track” and call themselves “your No.1 solution to immigrate to Canada” and although I don’t like dealing with absolutes like We Are No. 1, I have to admit they offer a rather friendly environment and approach to Canadian immigration.

The general eligibility requirements are explained in an easy-to-understand manner, thus if you are just now thinking to build a new life in Canada but you don’t know where or how to start, Canada Immigration Express (CIE) does a good job at explaining it to you.

Of course, if you decide to go forward, they will offer an assessment of your eligibility for permanent residency and selection of the right visa type based on your profile, as well as advice on how to increase your points in order to be eligible for a permanent residency visa.

Their team of immigration specialists will make sure that your application meets all necessary requirements, thus taking all the guesswork out of the process and providing a professional approach.

No In-House RCICs at Canada Immigration Express

Speaking of the team, we have to mention that Canada Immigration Express does not use in-house Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs), but instead they outsource to Great North Immigration Inc. to perform eligibility screening of clients’ profiles.  Keep in mind that Canada Immigration Express is not an agent of Great North Immigration Inc. or its consultants. Great North Immigration is headed by Mr. Amir Shuval, RCIC, and Ms. Sigal Barak, RCIC. Both of them are members of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC). As for their reputation: could you do better? Well, maybe, but then again, there’s always room for improvement – after all, Apple is coming out with a new phone every year, which is “better” than the previous one.

This all suggests that at the beginning of the process, your application will be handled by Canada Immigration Express and at some point, it will be transferred to Great North Immigration and their RCICs. This begs the question: why not go directly to Great North Immigration right from the start? After all, they also provide consultancy and assessment of eligibility. But maybe that’s a discussion for another time. 

As a whole, Canada Immigration Express looks okay but we wouldn’t call it the Number 1 solution to immigrate to Canada. The website lacks paid or free courses to improve some skills and their visa programs don’t include student, business, or tourist visas. Maybe they offer such courses if you specifically ask for them and maybe they will improve their offering to include other visa types but at this time, the said features are unavailable, which makes the overall offering a bit lackluster. 

Canada Immigration Express Fees

Considering that Canada Immigration Express works with subcontract Great North Immigration Inc, we may expect that their fees are higher than you may find in Great North Immigration Inc. Thus, fees could be unreasonably increased.

Canada Immigration Express Online Reviews

Canada Immigration Express doesn’t have a prominent online presence but they do keep in contact with their existing and potential clients through two social media outlets: Twitter and Facebook. Their Twitter account has 115 followers at the time of writing and it doesn’t seem like a lot is going on there, except some posts that praise the beauties of Canada and urge you to apply.

On the other hand, their Facebook page has almost 49,000 followers and almost 44,000 people who liked the page. We cannot be sure whether the users gave all those likes for CIE’s outstanding service provided or simply because they like the photos posted but either way, at least we can see they are active and posting regularly. Also, we’ve tried to contact them via Messenger and we’ve managed to get in touch with a polite rep, albeit after a 2 hour wait time.

Canada Immigration Express are not reviewed on Trustpilot but we did manage to locate a couple of Quora posts. However, those are not very relevant regarding the quality of services or people’s opinions. Basically, people were asking if CIE is legit and others were simply telling them to apply for immigration by themselves, without paying a company to help them. Well, that’s debatable, and again, it’s something better left for another time.  

Editor’s Note: The Bottom Line

At the time of writing, there are very few user reviews for Canada Immigration Express, which suggests that we are dealing with a medium-to-low profile immigration consultancy firm. Not saying it’s bad, but it makes it hard to locate life-based evidence of the quality of the company’s services. 

That is why we suggest to have a look at the most trusted alternatives that we recommend. After all it’s immigration, life-changing step, so you should be sure you are in good hands.
