ICCRC to Replace CSIC as Canada's Immigration Consultants Regulatory Body

Saturday, March 19, 2011

The Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) is the proposed new regulatory body to oversee immigration consultants.

Currently, the Canadian Society of Immigration Consultants (CSIC) is the government recognized organization responsible for regulating paid immigration consultants. The CSIC was established in 2003.

Concerns about the regulation of immigration consultants arose. There were complaints from the public and from within the profession about unacceptable practices of immigration consultants.

In 2008, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Citizenship and Immigration undertook a study of the immigration consulting industry. The committee recommended the creation of a new regulatory body. The Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) then launch a public selection process in June 2010, leading to the ICCRC's naming as the new regulator of immigration consultants.

ICCRC's job is to regulate immigration consultants that they provide their services in a professional and ethical manner. Quality consultation, representation and immigration advice will lead to public confidence in the integrity of Canada's immigration program.

It is anticipated that ICCRC will take the place of CSIC by summer. Transitional measures will be set to ensure continuity of service for both existing members in good standing of CSIC and their clients during the transition.

This change in regulatory body is part of a broader strategy to protect people wanting to immmigrate to or stay in Canada from immigration fraud.

People looking to migrate to Canada or work there must verify diligently that they are transacting only with authorized immigration consultants.
