ICCRC is the national regulatory authority designated by the Government of Canada to safeguard consumers who seek Canadian immigration advice and representation from immigration consultants. Federal law requires that immigration consultants in Canada or abroad, who provide Canadian immigration services for a fee, must be registered with ICCRC and accredited as Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCICs).


A self-governing regulatory body, ICCRC manages the profession’s entry-to-practice standards, professional requirements and a rigorous complaints and discipline process.  http://www.iccrc-crcic.ca/

 

Why Use a RCIC in Canadian Immigration?

Before acquiring the services of an immigration consultant, it is important to understand the difference between a Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant (RCIC) and an unauthorized provider of immigration services.  RCICs are required to abide by a strict Code of Professional Ethics – available here.  There will be numerous benefits associated with utilizing the services of a RCIC and serious risks associated with utilizing the services of these unauthorized providers.
