About CICS Immigration Consulting Inc.

The Vancouver based CICS Immigration Consulting has over 20 years of experience in the field of Canadian immigration. Its president and partner, Mohammed Khadempour is a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) and claims to have been the previous regulator of the ICCRC (Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council). If you do not yet know, companies must employ RCICs or immigration lawyers if they charge for immigration services. Thankfully, CICS have this legal requirement covered, employing a whole list of RCICs, including Alex Khadempour (#R413159).

Website and Services

The website of CICS Immigration Consulting has a bare and basic design. Not much effort has gone into making it modern or aesthetically appealing. However, there seems to be a wealth of information available, which is good. However, despite all this information they have failed to provide terms and conditions or privacy policy on their website.  CICS claim to be able to help you with immigration to Canada using any of the major immigration programs, including:

  • Federal Skilled Worker;
  • Canadian Experience Class;
  • Skilled Trades Program;
  • Federal and Quebec Investor Program;
  • Sponsorship;
  • Provincial Nominee Programs;
  • Student Permits; and
  • Work Permits

For the most part, CICS seems to have a great understanding of each of these categories, providing a ton of information on each of them on their website. However, on their Provincial Nominee Programs (PNPs) section it is a completely different story. They make no mention of the various subcategories of the PNPs and merely provide external links to the provinces and territories’ immigration websites. The problem is that some of those links lead to non-existing pages! CICS has not updated its website in a very long time seeing as most of the provinces have completely moved websites. The last service on the list we found to be a nice addition that not many companies include. Essentially, it involves assisting clients who have already immigrated with tasks, like opening a bank account. It makes us believe that the company really cares for their clients beyond the initial immigration process, however, the post-immigration and settlement still come with a price tag. CICS also offers a free assessment service for you to figure out if you can qualify for Canadian immigration. 

Social Media

The social media links of CICS Immigration Consulting can be found in the sidebar on their website. Their Facebook page has a following of just over 7,000 people. They update it regularly with relevant Canadian immigration content and seem to be quite responsive. They have some positive reviews on their page too, which is a big plus. Their Twitter has 4,350 followers and is quite outdated, the last post being in February 2018.


The biggest issue CICS has, is its inability to remain up-to-date. We found this very problematic because the field of Canadian immigration is constantly changing. As a prospective client, you have to be assured that you receive comprehensive, current and useful advice to ensure that your immigration application goes smoothly. We can confirm that they have several RCICs in their employment and chances are they can be trusted for their services despite the neglect of their website.
