As of March 20, 2014
If a foreign worker or employer decides to use an immigration consultant or foreign worker recruiter, they must use the services of a licensed recruiter or immigration consultant under The Foreign Worker Recruitment and Immigration Services Act (FWRISA). Employers who hire unlicensed representatives are subject to penalties under the FWRISA. Foreign nationals who hire unlicensed representatives cannot be fully protected under the FWRISA. Applications to the Saskatchewan Immigrant Nominee Program supported by unlicensed representatives may be refused.
The lists below identify all the individuals who are authorized under the FWRISA to provide foreign worker recruiting services or immigration consulting services to foreign nationals coming to Saskatchewan. The lists include:
The lists are current as of the posting date and will be updated bi-weekly or as needed.
If the individual you are planning to use for recruitment or immigration services is not on the list of valid service providers, please contact the Program Integrity Unit at (306)787-0006 or at email@example.com to get more information on their status.
Please note under the FWRISA, immigration lawyers are exempt from the requirement to be licensed as immigration consultants. Lawyers providing immigration services must be members in good standing with the provincial law society in which they practice. Active members can be searched in each province at http://flsc.ca/about-us/our-members-canadas-law-societies/. Lawyers who provide recruitment services must be licensed under FWRISA.
