Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC)
We are Members of the ICCRC, the National Regulator of Immigration Consultants in Canada. The Canadian Government authorizes only those immigration consultants who are Members in good standing of the ICCRC. With the coming into force of Bill C-35, on June 30, 2011 anyone who provides paid advice prior to the filing of an application or the commencement of a proceeding must be an authorized representative. This means that some third parties who were not formerly required to be recognized to provide paid advice will now have to refer people to an authorized representative or become authorized themselves.
