Hi all Friends i have heard from some of my friends that they receive e-mails from wwic-s in which wwic-s ask them to pay 700$ from their pocket to file case aganist CIC for prejune .But dear friend kindly do not that .CIC already commit that they clear backlog in 2012 -2013.As per my calculation these Organisations like Wwic-s do not have money to pay salaries their employees.we seen that in 2011 only 5200 case file till date for MI3 catagories through out world and their more than 100000 immgration agencies(canam,wwic-s,eastweast etc).so their 1 case for 200 agencies.soo think how these agencies pay salaries to their employees.they are making fool peoples who apply from WWIC-S. so do not pay any thing in panic mood .
see the link where kenny promise to clear backlog
Dear Indian et al
Please get your facts straight before you advise.
I wonder how you can vouch for the minister to be serious in clearing the backlog. The fact is Delhi says it will not process pre-feb 2008 applications in 2011 and 2012 (ofcourse with no gaurantee to process them in 2013 either). As for those stuck in post feb2008 and pre-june26 the waiting time is two years and more(i.e. 3, 4 years....) when they were promised visas in 12months. Litigation is the only way to get the files processed.
And for your information the court case has already been filed with more than 500 litigants with numbers still growing. Infact the agency that is now asking for $700 is doing a good job to bring CIC to account. The litigation has been so popular that the lawyers are expected to increase the fee four times as per this agent. CIC has untill 20 december to respond whether it wants to mediate or go in for litigation.
And as for your conclusion that the agency needs to pay it's employees...... well no one is doing charity here. The fee is for litigation which is peanuts considering that going to the court on an individual basis will cost an applicant CAD$5,000 upwards.
