Chandigarh, March 25
Immigration is a business of trust, where a person places his entire future in the hands of an immigration consultant. Yet some fly by night operators befool innocent people. WWICS has made all efforts to accentuate that immigration entails responsibility and ethics in a much larger measure than perhaps in any other business.
V. Narayanasamy, Union Minister of state for Culture, Planning and Parliamentary Affairs said this while addressing around 200 future immigrants and their families at the Investiture Ceremony of World Wide Immigration Consultancy Services (WWICS) held here today. V. Narayanasamy added “I am glad that WWICS is one such company which not only gives immigration services to its clients but also gives assurance for smooth settlement and placement in the destination country. Today would be a proud moment for WWICS as its 200 clients are getting Permanent Residency Visa and would soon be moving to Canada. I’m sure with the efforts and guidance of WWICS you would establish well and bring laurels to our great country India.”
WWICS today celebrated investiture ceremony of two hundred clients who were handed over visas or landing papers within a short span of one month. Around 200 people who are ready to take off to destined shores, attended the grand ceremony with their family members. All these clients were immigrating to different countries- Canada, UK, NZ, Australia under Skilled Worker, Business & Study Visa categories.
Guest of the honor of the occasion, Raj Babbar, MP Firozabad exhorted efforts of WWICS in establishing an international agency that works transparently and in a professional way. “In last 16 years, WWICS has successfully settled 70, 000 people at their dream destinations. These immigrants now form community of those successful NRIs who are greatly contributing to Punjab’s economy by initiating various social and commercial ventures,” Raj Babbar added.
Informing gathering about the likely to be introduced changes in Canada’s Priority Occupation List (POL) from May 1, 2010, Col B S Sandhu (Retd) Chairman & Managing Director, WWICS said that the Canadian government is in process to reconsider the 38 occupations in POL. The minister said that Canadian government has envisaged certain bodies, through amended immigration and refugee act, which provide advice and represent potential immigrants. Opting for immigration through a certified representative provides added advantage of security and transparency in system.
Advising aspirants to file their papers before May 1, 2010, if their occupation is already enlisted in the POL, he said that this was the right time to file for immigration and commence with their papers.”
“Once the revised list is released, we never know whether an occupation enlisted in POL will continue to enjoy same status in new list or not as some occupations may be deleted and many more added,” he added
He said that as the economic recovery gains momentum, Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney has launched consultations with national and regional stakeholders, provinces and territories and general public to identify Canada’s new and emerging labor market needs and how immigration can best respond to them.
Col. Sandhu added that immigration was just 30 percent of resettlement process; WWICS helps people even after they reach Canada / Australia through its post-landing services. After people get visas and before they land up on foreign lands, WWICS organizes pre-departure orientation sessions, grooming and training programs to prepare them for suitable jobs. It receives newly landed immigrant at airport, provides temporary accommodation in welcome houses/ guest houses.
The company’s representatives also help in obtaining social insurance number card, health insurance, opening bank account, getting drivers license and job for Permanent Residents landing in Canada under the Federal Program. It even helps permanent resident or temporary resident to integrate in Canadian society, helps temporary resident on work permit to apply for permanent residency either under Canadian
Experience Class or under ministerial instructions.
