Calgary Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCIC)
In Canada, you need to be authorized with the right credentials to act on behalf of an applicant with Citizenship and Immigration Canada. These special individuals are known as Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultants (RCIC) and are accredited by the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC).
Immigration consultants need to pass an academic requirement before they become a full member of ICCRC to help immigration clients with their applications. There are many cases of fraudulent activities related to immigration consultants with no diploma or ICCRC memberships. Please be cautious when dealing with other consultants and ask for their credentials!
