If you have an occupation on THE LIST you're just wasting your money. You will be immediately asked for a $3000 deposit and for some people it has climbed to $17,000, with no guarantee of a visa.

Do the application yourself, it is not difficult.

I sorry, but I must be blunt here. What do you expect him to do for you? Get you a job and a LMO? IMO, that is highly unlikely. I think he will just part you from your money and leave you high and dry.
May I ask, what is it you do for a living?

Here's some info for you.

Your immigration consultant must be recognized by Canadian authorities and must be a Canadian lawyer or a cerified member of the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants. You should check on CSIC's website to see if the person is registered. There is a list of members operating in the UK.
If you retain the services of a lawyer, ensure that he/she is an immigration specialist and not a generalist.
