Career Beginnings and Starting a Business

Since his childhood days, Mr. Aniruddh Mukhopadhyay dreamt of becoming a successful entrepreneur. He had his goals set from the very beginning. Canada was his dream destination. He started planning to move to the land of his dreams for a bright future and a world class lifestyle as soon as he completed his high school. Back in the day, when he came to Canada for the first time, he was amazed to see how cosmopolitan and diverse it was. There were people from all over the world, even from countries he had never heard of.

Canada has been the land of immigrants dating back to the first European colonizers of the 16th century. The waves of immigration have never stopped since and only got stronger with time. More recently, Canada has seen the greatest influx of immigrants and students from India. Hailing from India himself, he knows how thousands of aspiring candidates get misguided and cheated by agents claiming to be immigration experts.

Hence, he decided to study immigration law in Canada and become a licensed counsel to offer the right advice and guidance on Canadian immigration matters to people who want to make their dreams come true. Currently, Aniruddh Mukhopadhyay, RCIC is a member in good standing of the designated regulatory body (ICCRC). In Canada, ICCRC is the national regulatory body that promotes and protects the public interest by overseeing regulated immigration and citizenship consultants and international student advisors.

ICCRC's federal mandate stems from the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Citizenship Act which require anyone providing Canadian immigration or citizenship advice or representation for a fee or other consideration to be a member in good standing of ICCRC. Exceptions are members in good standing of a law society in Canada or the Chambre des notaires du Québec. Individuals providing Canadian immigration/citizenship services abroad are subject to Canadian law even if they reside outside of Canada. Aniruddh Mukhopadhyay, RCIC provides legal advice on Canadian immigration matters, in compliance with the regulations set by ICCRC.

USP of Mapleroads Immigration

There are numerous immigration firms across the world which offer Canadian immigration advice but are not authorized to do so by the Canadian designated regulatory body (ICCRC). These are usually agents without any presence in Canada who claim to be Canadian immigration experts. However, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Citizenship Act of Canada require anyone providing Canadian immigration or citizenship advice or representation for a fee or other consideration to be a member in good standing of ICCRC. Exceptions are members in good standing of a law society in Canada or the Chambre des notaires du Québec. Individuals providing Canadian immigration/citizenship services abroad are subject to Canadian law even if they reside outside of Canada. MAPLEROADS IMMIGRATION is a Canada-based immigration firm run by Mr. Aniruddh Mukhopadhyay, RCIC, who is a member in good standing of ICCRC. They also provide post-landing support in Canada.

Past and Current Challenges Faced by Mapleroads Immigration

The immigration industry is a very sensitive industry because there have been many instances of fraudulent activities and scams over the years. There are numerous unauthorized agents in South Asia and other parts of the world who claim to be experts in Canadian immigration law without any formal education or training whatsoever. They have earned a bad reputation for the industry at large and most people view everyone in the immigration industry with suspicion. Initially, people did not know how Mapleroads Immigration is different because not many in South Asia and other countries are aware of the Canadian designated regulatory body (ICCRC).

Mapleroads Immigration educated a lot of people globally about the Canadian designated regulatory body (ICCRC) and members licensed by them to provide authorized legal advice on Canadian immigration matters. After spreading this awareness, people started acknowledging the credibility of Mapleroads Immigration and learnt about the difference between unauthorized agents and RCIC/ member in good standing of ICCRC.

Expansion Plans and Other Business Avenues

Mapleroads Immigration wants to expand its global presence, especially in India, Philippines, UAE, Vietnam, Africa, South America and the Middle East. Canada will admit 1.3 million immigrants across 2018-2021. One in four foreigners who got PR status in Canada in 2019 was an Indian. According to CIC NEWS, there were 642,480 Study Permit holders in Canada as of December 31, 2019 out of which 219,855 were Indians. Hence, the market is huge and Mapleroads Immigration will do its best to tap it.
