The primary services provided by STC are to help you in obtaining active knowledge about Work Permit authorizations in Canada and related regulatory procedures. We describe documents and forms you generally need to provide to achieve these aims. For the avoidance of doubt, if we provide services to you, you are our customer and these Terms apply. If we refer you to any other service provider, you take responsibility for reviewing any services provided and that service provider’s terms and conditions will apply for their services. We do not accept any liability for third party services and these Terms will not apply to those services.
Our order process allows you to check and amend any errors before submitting your order to us. After you place an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order. If your order appears to be correct, we will notify you that we have accepted your order and begun work on it. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you this acceptance notification.
These Terms apply to any offer and any agreement between you and STC and to the provision of any service provided to you by or on behalf of STC.
STC will endeavour to provide you with accurate information to the best of its ability to obtain, maintain and retain such information.
