The College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants is launched
On November 23, 2021, the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) was replaced by the College of Immigration and Citizenship Consultants (CICC). The Government gave the College increased regulatory powers such as the ability to investigate professional misconduct, take disciplinary measures against fraudulent licensees, and obtain court injunctions against unauthorized immigration practitioners (UAP).
These expanded powers will be directed to the protection of both the public and the consultants. The Government announced that the complete transition of the ICCRC into the CICC will probably take at least one year.
