Use of Representative

Subject: Use of Representative
  Has anyone had any experience with family/friends being listed as "representatives?" Does this just allow them to do business on your behalf (which I would think would be useful in they live in Canada) or does this actually put them in charge of your case as if they were an attorney?

(I have a close/old friend in Ottawa who I trust implicitly who has offered to do legwork for me if needed, but as far as I can see, this is the only way she would be able to do anything.)

yes, this is good for such things as ordering CAIPS notes. You can also authorize a person as your rep. after you have sent your application using the correct required forms available on CIC website.

Hi Asha,

Use of representative (paid or not paid) is not required. Sometimes paid consultants mess up your application :). Here is a link from CIC website about paid or not paid representatives...

Thanks! I´ve read all the stuff on CIC and while it says a bunch, there´s too much that it DOESN´T say. I just want to make sure that if I send in these forms for her (unpaid rep) that my case doesn´t end up entirely in her hands. (She doesn´t want this either!)
