Canadian Immigration Representatives
Who May Represent You?
Are you:

  • Applying for a visa or making any other application under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act?
  • Undergoing a proceeding or hearing for an immigration or refugee matter?

In some cases, individuals who wish to come to, or stay in, Canada have a representative provide them with additional support or advice.

Remember you are not obliged to hire a representative for immigration and refugee matters. The Government of Canada treats everyone equally, whether they use the services of a representative or not.

There are two types of representatives: paid and unpaid.

Consult these pages to find more information about paid and unpaid representatives.

The Benefits of Beer
From: http://www.healthyontario.com/english/index.asp
Web site by Ontario Government voted best in world for Health Information
Beer drinking may lead to more than just a beer belly.
According to the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University, beer contains high levels of an ingredient that helps deposit calcium and other minerals into bone tissue.
And a recent study found the antioxidants present in dark beer help prevent clogged arteries, which should reduce the risk of heart disease.
Most research showed the optimum benefits can be reaped with up to one drink a day for women and up to two a day for men.
Still, it's a good idea to take a look at the size of your beer belly before you knock back a pint or two. The extra calories found in beer may cancel out any health benefits.
