Marjorie Newman decided to pursue a career in immigration consulting due to her experience at a law firm, where she gained exposure to complex immigration situations. As an immigrant, she understands what prospective immigrants face with their immigration applications. In 2012, she obtained her professional designation as a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant.
Marjorie holds a Master's of Public Administration from FR Urios University in the Philippines and a bachelor's degree in Mass Communications from St. Theresa's College in Cebu City, Philippines. She completed her immigration consultant certificate program at the CSIC e-academy. Since then, her depth of experience has covered a wide range of immigration applications. In particular, Marjorie is passionate about reuniting families through sponsorship, though she has obtained experience in various types of immigration applications as well.
In her spare time, Marjorie is active as a volunteer in community services, especially within the Filipino community, where she was a key organizer in events such as the Philippines Independence Day celebration, a fundraiser for typhoon victims in the Philippines, and the popular Heritage Festival. Additionally, she is a freelance newscaster for the internationally broadcast Filipino news channel, Balitang America, where she covers important headline topics including the recent Fort McMurray wildfire. Marjorie currently resides in Edmonton, Alberta, with her husband and daughter. She believes that her passion to help others is the principal motivation for her career.
Marjorie has been a member of CAPIC for several years. She currently serves as a CAPIC Prairie Chapter representative in the Governance and Nomination Committee, and served as Prairie Chapter Education Director last year. She is a strong advocate of CAPIC's mission, and is a believer in its vision as a leader in the industry in the areas of education, information, recognition, and lobbying. Most of all, she believes in CAPIC’s advancement of the interests of all immigration consultants.
