The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) is a national regulatory body that serves and protects the public by overseeing licensed immigration and citizenship consulting and international student advising professionals.

 

Standard with all regulatory bodies, ICCRC’s fulfills its mandate by:

  • Establishing entry-to-practice requirements of applicants seeking admission into the regulated professions;
  • Licensing professionals;
  • Overseeing their professional development and conduct;
  • Receiving, investigation and adjudicating complaints; and
  • Administering a disciplinary process to sanction professionals who fail to meet the regulator’s standards.

Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act as well as the Citizenship Act require that anyone who provides immigration or citizenship advice for a fee or other consideration, must be a member in good standing of ICCRC, a Canadian law society, or the Chambre des notaires du Québec.

 

Licensed immigration consultants are known as Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs) and international student advisors are Regulated International Student Immigration Advisors (RISIAs).
