As of July 1, 2015, our policy is to charge a professional fee based on a flat rate for most matters and an hourly rate for limited work on a file.

Depending on the complexity of the case, we offer an hourly rate or a flat rate. We keep detailed logs of the time spent on your file. We only work for as long as a case requires, so you will never be over-billed. Final invoices will include government fees, taxes, and out-of-pocket expenses.

Flat rate billing

Generally, we will handle the matter from start to finish, with guidance throughout the entire process. Hence, you may choose to pay a flat fee (fixed fee) for the immigration and citizenship services. The benefit is that you can budget the fees at the beginning.

Hourly rate billing

Alternatively, you may choose to hire us at our hourly rate of C$300.00. KIS Migration Inc. will bill monthly for services rendered on an hourly fee basis. If you need limited support, it is more cost-effective to pay for our services on an hourly fee basis. We will render a detailed account of our time spent on various tasks.

No contingency billing

The regulator, CICC, expressly prohibits contingency billing. Therefore, a consultant must not charge a contingency fee (defined as payment of the professional fee depending on a successful outcome).

We are fully transparent with pricing in our agreements.


Usually, an appointment is scheduled for 30 minutes. Before the consultation, the immigration professional will review documents, identify issues, and conduct research. During the session, the immigration consultant will interview you and advise you on Canadian immigration and/or citizenship options. After the meeting, you will receive a written opinion.


Please note that the professional fees do not include government fees, taxes, or disbursements (out-of-pocket expenses: courier, postage, copy, print, telecommunications, third-party costs, etc.). In addition, you will bear the cost of document collection, notarization, medical examination, police clearance, translation, interpretation, educational credential assessment, language testing, etc. Services provided in Canada are subject to the GST/HST. We accept Canadian dollars.

KIS Migration Inc. does not offer pro bono (free of charge) services as legal aid is available in Alberta.

We accept payments by cash, wire transfer, INTERAC eTransfer Autodeposit, debit card (VISA Debit and MasterCard Debit), and credit card (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover).

Above C$3,000.00

We require advance payments to start and continue to work with you. The deposits will be held in our trust account and will be used to satisfy our invoices for completed services. Until you provide us with an advance payment, or replenish the retainer when it is exhausted, we will not work on your file. A payment plan of two installments by milestones will be provided.

Below C$3,000.00

For all other matters, KIS Migration Inc. needs to receive the full amount as a deposit.

After a milestone has been reached, you will be billed for the completed work. Remaining trust funds will be returned to you at the end of the process.

The amount we charge is for the process, not the result. Results can never be guaranteed by anyone as the granting of any type of status is at the sole discretion (right to decide) of the federal, provincial, and territorial governments.
