New College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants to open in fall
August 20, 2021
The federal government is opening a College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants as it looks to root out immigration fraud and protect the immigration system from exploitation.
The new college is a continuance of Immigration Consultant of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) but will be a fundamentally different organization, with expanded authorities necessary for the regulation of a profession and additional levers for government oversight to ensure strengthened regulatory outcomes.
Opening on Nov. 23, the college will become the official regulator of immigration and citizenship consultants across the country, improving oversight and cracking down on criminals, according to the government.
